  3. Site-Level External Sharing Management

    What would be lovely would be some ability to proactively manage sharing at the site level (not site collection), meaning I'd like site owners to have to request approval to share externally.

  4. 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. Empty Folder Report

    Would like to have a report that would list folders and/or document libraries that have been created but are empty. Right now I'm looking at easily finding empty folders.

    This way, we could easily delete them.

  8. Paste the Path to Find the File Share Location

    -I should not have to browse the file share. It's too big. I should be able to copy the path into the browse window and hit enter
    -I would also like the ability to enter a UNC path in the file share

    Google sites as a source is not on our roadmap. Our current focus is Office 365 management and security.

    If you have any other questions, just let me know and I’ll be happy to help.

  12. 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.

  16. Generate Sharegate Excel Files Using Powershell

    We would like to be able to generate Sharegate Excel files using powershell. This would greatly help in automating the entire proces of migration for the powershell modules we have built around all of the other Sharegate powershell commands.

    I would like to be able to have a command that produces the intermediate excel file like you can generate from the UI.
    Input params would be:
    Network location , siteurl, documentlibrary name, propertymapping, contenttypemapping, outputfilename, outputfolder.
