  7. Import Teams Channel Posts from CSV file

    Recently in Teams migration there was an error coming up only for posts in the "General" channel but everything else was in other channels. So the idea is...
    - be able to export team channel messages with SG PowerShell as csv file
    - import messages to new channel from csv or similar

    In this case there are hundreds of Teams that was migrated successfully except the posts in "General" for those teams. This could also be handy for some kind of teams merge etc.

  9. Make "merge with site" the default migration action

    Can you please give us the ability to make "Merge with site" the default action instead of create sub-site? I mean we do not even create subsites any more and the option is disabled in the tenant, and even Microsoft does not want any more subisites. So why is create sub-site still the default option in 2022? Please Please Please let us change the default.

  10. Teams to Channel migration in the same cloud

    -Teams to Channel migration in the same tenant
    -Ability to move Teams into channels under a new Team without the limitation of an html file that holds most of the conversations. The html file limitation is terrible in the current version and we have had several customers not choose this tool specifically for this reason only.
    -Ability to move all tabs and apps with the Team/Channel
    -Ability to move all emojis with the Team/Channel
    -Ability to move Private Teams as a channel into another Team
    -Ability to move a customized SP site that is attached to the Team into another…

  11. Site Provisioning through an endpoint form request for users

    This would be a feature where a user can have access to a form to request sites (Teams or communication) based off templates and approval process.

  12. Being able to filter multiple migration reports in order to get only the errors on the tasks

    If you run multiple tasks, it would be nice to select them and already filter the errors out because the files are often too big to merge them all when they include all Successes as well.

  13. Status page for Sharegate

    There should be like a status page that indicates if there are any current migration issues with Sharegate. For example, Microsoft pushed an update last week and it affected Teams migrations, and I'm just finding out today about it, after running several migrations and spending time investigating, and then opened a support ticket to find out Sharegate is aware of the issue and actively working on it. Might be a good idea to have a status page on your site where admins can go in and check if there are new changes to be aware about.

  15. Remove disclaimer for Channel Post

    During the migration of a Post under a Channel, we leave a disclaimer of who migrated the Post and where it is from. Removing it would be great

  16. Differentiate Microsoft Teams that have the same name.

    It would be beneficial to add additional information, such as the underlying URL, to Microsoft Teams listed in the Sharegate Migration tool.

    There currently isn't a way to easily tell the difference between multiple teams, with the same name, that you may wish to copy.

  17. Ability to access and report on the hidden User Information List.

    There are times a bulk # of users that are not yet orphaned but need to be removed from SharePoint. Maybe have a powershell script available for various activities such as this and ability to export to excel, etc..

  18. Support Modern Authentication

    Team,

    They way we currently authenticate is using Basic auth as per the logs. Since Microsoft will stup supporting Basic auth in 2022, do you have any plans (or maybe already a solution) that is modern and not basic based?

  20. Save settings and mappings for future use

    Could you please enable saving settings and mappings as profiles (or saved options, whatever you’d like to call it)?
    It would make a huge difference for migrations that require dozens of tasks (multiple times).
