  1. Setting to prevent Sharegate from crawling your environments in Explorer

    It’d be nice to have a setting added in a future release that would allow for the passive operations to be disabled. That way we would only be prompted to logon to site collections for actions we deliberately initiated. Outside of the issue that we are experiencing, I can definitely think of a number of use cases where this type of setting would be desirable (e.g. compliance/organizational policy, low bandwidth, etc).

  2. Report on which sites have external users with a Yes/No column or filter

    see which sites are externally shared and which ones are not (without filtering by user type). Maybe an ability to include another column that says “externally shared” with a yes or no.

  4. Adapt to my small laptop screen

    ShareGate on my corporate issued laptop is almost unusable due to how large the UI elements have scaled. Please consider an adaptable UI that adapts to the size and resolution of users who must do some work from a laptop.
    Version: ShareGate 12.2.1

  9. Primary key

    We need to be able to use the internal SP ID as a primary key. How can we do this. When doing a delta migration this is important. The time stamp does not always work and ID is by far the best solution. Is there a work around??? this is maddening. thanks!

  10. Site Downloads and Recycle bin

    Site downloads really should include Recycle bin files. I'm not looking to migrate, delete, or restore content, but we should be able to export the entire site as-is including a folder of deleted items. We had legal use case where this was needed and your product did not support it.

  13. Feature request

    When scheduling a Task, id did not find a way to rename the scheduled Task so that i can easily identify what the task is for. If you have several Admins and several Tasks this can be confusing.

    Please add the feature to rename or give a scheduled Task a Title or Description.

    Cheers, Stephan

  14. Apply template / design theme (when promote) to Modern Sites

    I use Sharegate to migrate my classic (sub) sites to the modern site (collections). It would be great if we could apply theming / design to the moderns sites by selecting options that creates and runs a script in the background. Because we don't like to script this ourselves ;-)
    It will set the logo / colors / default theme etc and creates a modern home page. So all modern sites look consistent. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-US/sharepoint/dev/declarative-customization/site-design-overview?branch=sitedesign

  15. Search

    When searching for OneDrive the user is found but after selecting from the search bar it does not select the user. Additional searches don't return the user in the search bar. I have always had to manually scroll the list to find the user. It would be helpful if the search worked.

  17. Keep selection when resuming session

    Hello, the option to go back to a completed/historical task is a great option. However, I find that when I select "Return to this Session" my selctions (ie I only want to copy certain files or sites) in the "copy from" window are dropped which greatly decreases the usefulness of this option. Can I please request that a feature is added whereby selections are saved with the task? Thanks, Mike.

  18. Bulk connect site collections

    I find myself today having to add over 100 site collections via 'add connection' option - it would be great of we could bulk upload a listing of all site collections - or better yet, add all the site collections under a web app all in one fell swoop.

  19. Improve support of browser authentication

    There needs to be improvements around authentication in certain scenarios. We have a large Microsoft 365 tenant with over 100k users. Due to this, administration and support for SharePoint is provided at the agency level (the highest level of organizational division within the entity). So our specific use case is: 1) are not tenant administrators, 2) the tenant administrators will provide no support to us, 3) we use browser-based authentication. So what ends up happening in our case is that every time we open ShareGate we are forced to either log on or cancel individually for every one of our…
