  2. Report on ''Link''

    I am hoping that a report could be made to search thru all list library items that have a content Type of “Link” (or Document Library with a content type of “Link to document”) and then be able to do a “contains” or “ends with” option so we can target a selected Link or page

  5. Bulk edit metadata without affecting version number

    We would like to bulk update the metadata of a library. However, we would like to keep the current version number of the documents, so it cannot be increased when we use ShareGate to bulk update the metadata.

  8. SharePoint and Fileshare Inventory Drill Down

    It would be neat if you could take the SharePoint inventory report and drill down into the individual stats :

    • Expand workflows since they do not show up in the errors that you can export
    • Be able to click on a summary like unused sites and see a list of all the unused sites
    • Expand checked out files, custom master pages, unsupported templates
    • Sort site collections by size, number of sites, workflows, etc.

  12. Permissions Matrix Report - Export the SharedLinks recipient user

    Currently you can View the SharingLinks Recipient user, but you cannot export them. Having this in an export is super important for migrations and copies so that we can have them reshared as/if needed and report back to the site owners.

  13. Extract group members during promote

    When using the promote option. Would it be possible to pull the people from the site owners group and add them as the new team site group owners? Otherwise I would need to retrieve the site owners manually from each site that is promoted.

  14. Remove the permissions for orphaned users

    We find it helpful not to clean any orphaned users entirely so we keep the "created by" and "modified by" data for these users, but we would like to automatically remove their permissions (direct permissions as well as memberships from SharePoint groups) so that our site owners don't need to manually clean up their permissions to keep a good overview. Therefore I suggest to add the possibility to "Clean orphaned user permissions only" next to the "clean orphaned users" in SharePoint desktop.
