    Hi everyone,

    Since ShareGate Desktop now allow us to automatically export migration reports (and other reports) when a task is done to a SharePoint library, you may easily setup a Microsoft Flow or workflow to notify you when a task is over. If you need some inspiration, I wrote a blog post on how users can leverage Microsoft Flow to share reports by email: https://sharegate.com/blog/use-microsoft-flow-automatically-send-sharegate-desktop-reports

    It’s not a native way to get notified, but a nice workaround you could use until we add official email notifications (if we do at some point).

    Cheers,

    Hello ShareGaters,

    I was going through the comments in this thread and clearly understood your desire of visibility over user alerts (who created them, type of alerts, etc.) but I am curious to hear how the info would be used, how you would consume the info and most importantly, do you also feel the need to take any kind of actions over the alerts?

    I hope I’ll hear from you soon!

    Thank you

  6. Display Anonymous Guests Links in the Reporting Tool

    I would like to have the anonymous links of documents and files being shared. Right now, I don't know to which address the documents are being shared. I don't want to disable the sharing as some of them are required.

  7. Multi-user selection in the search section for features "add/remove/copy permissions"

    Remove all users in a site collection without going to each sub-site and removing them from security groups.

    I have over 700 users that need to be removed in multiple sub-sites and various security groups. It would take me forever to remove them if I have to add their names individually.

    Being able to select many users at a time in the search section for features like “remove permissions”. For now you have to search for one user, add it, search for another one, add it, etc.

  9. Use the "And" or "Or" Logic on Filters in Reports

    As it stand, the Reporting feature only supports the "And" logic when adding filters to a report. This is a request to have the option to use the "Or" logic when having multiple filters.

    Our stance still stand on this feature and we still wish to provide it to you guys eventually.

    At this point this is more a question of priority and once we feel like our features to move to the cloud and other environnements are on point, we will get to this.

    It would be nice if reports could pull emails instead of just names. I know some reports can, but not all.

    • Permission Matrix Report
    • Built-In reports

    Email address linked to the user. ID also for pre-build reports
