  3. 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.

  5. 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.

    What would be even more awesome if you could think up a way to be able to insert Excel formulas into the propertymapping when…

  11. Support for Multi-factor Authentication through cellphone apps

    Authentication through MFA with external applications is complicated to set up and only works if authentication is retrievable by Browser.

    Sharegace can now report on (find) and force check-in of checked-out documents, including “never checked-in” documents. We consider it is better practice to clean up prior to a migration, therefore we will not work on further support for migration of checked-out documents.

    Thank you for your suggestion!
    Unfortunately, this is not something we are considering at this time.

    After thinking about it, we decided to close this suggestion.

    We feel like our current offer should cover most case for Box migration to SharePoint.

    We know PowerShell is not always the easiest thing to use, but our support can always help you when needed.

  17. Reporting - keep selected objects to run multiple reports

    I often run multiple reports against the same objects. each time I run a report I must browse through hundreds of sites to find the site I had just previously selected. A feature to maintain the selected the selected objects then run multiple reports would be great.

  18. Copy Over Ratings of Items

    I don't know if it is possible to copy over the ratings of items.

    I copied over an Announcement and it had ratings on a 1-5 scale and I noticed, when I did Copy Site Objects, that it didn't copy the ratings over. They were there, however the ratings weren't filled out by the users.
