  1. List of pending invitations sent to External Users

    I have a requirement to export “External User Invitations” to show a list of Pending invitations and it would also be nice to have a list of invitation history too.

    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.

  4. Set Page Layouts via PowerShell

    It would be good to set Page Layouts via PowerShell per content type.

    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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. Change user/group permission in one step

    Hi, permissions work great for adding new or removing existing but editing requires 2 steps, one to add and one to delete. An Edit option would be real nice. Even better if I dont have to find and select the groups that are already listed.

  11. "Allow Access Request" Explicit control

    "Allow Access Request" Explicit control

    The ability to implicitly disable “Allow access requests” introduced in 7.1 no longer fits with the changes we see in the SharePoint Online interface.

    I have documented the flow below.

    I set up a “Site Collection Report w/ Access Request enabled”

    The Access request e-mail is already EMPTY, so I cannot cause the “Actions for checked items” to disable the setting.

    The current workflow is if one or more settings e-mail is not EMPTY is, 1. click Edit, 2. set to Empty (no value), 3. click save.
    The Sharegate app sets the e-mail value to…

    This is a limitation on Microsoft’s (SharePoint API) side. Given that Audiences has seen no improvement in several years, it is doubtful they will every add support for Audience manipulation on classic webparts.

    If an Audience feature is added on Modern (SPFx) Webparts in the future, we will support it.

  13. Migrate workflow with CAML in query list

    Workflow having Query List action configured with CAML Builder does not get migrated. Since entire workflow fails to migrate, we request Sharegate to look into either of below options:
    1. Replace query list with CAML as placeholder
    2. Enable Sharegate to migrate workflow with CAML in query list

  14. Preserve selection of lower level items in Explorer

    When using the Explorer, it would be great if the selection of lower level site objects such as OneDrive libraries was preserved when moving back up a level. At this time, if i select libraries in a OneDrive then navigate back to the web app, my previous selections are lost.

    After thinking about it, we have decided to decline this suggestion.

    This is not currently on our road map since the effort required by our development team would be really high and we prefer to put this effort on other thing, like a better support of the modern workplace.

    Thank you for your suggestion

  18. Members of SharePoint Groups

    Please show the number of custom Sharepoint groups and possibly the members of each one.
