  1. For Copy Structure jobs, allow "Source List Name" as an available column in Tasks

    Currently it only shows the source site. Determining the source list(s) used requires opening each Task manually.

  2. Rename scheduled tasks

    I rely on being able to rename my tasks. Otherwise, it's generic like "Copy 100 items from Documents to Documents". I need to know what site/subsite it is, and so on. It appears there is no way to rename a scheduled task, even when it's a recurring one. Only the migration report generated after can be renamed.

  3. Folder Mapping for more automation

    Automatically map Folder "My Files" on a Fileshare to Folder "Documents" in OD4B, so that everything in that Folder is always being copied to Documents in the users onedrive. Same with videos, music, pictures.

    You can easily automate and move more quickly to OD4B.

  7. Feedback from application

    Hello,
    When i run copy and click on option and select my customized template and click on start copy. On the start copy screen It should show which template is selected.

          This way i will be sure the start copy command has been executed using my selected template and not otherwise.

  8. Being able to revist a Export metadata session.

    I've setup a export to spreadsheet with field mappings etc, then run a test export of a small number of records. Thinking I'd be able to revist the session as you can with migration.. it appears not!
    This would be very useful...

    Cheers
    Russ

  9. Support the Office 365 unified audit logs

    The legacy Audit Reports are no longer available online and have been moved to the Exchange Unified Audit logs in the Security and Compliance Center. The Audit Reports in ShareGate Desktop no longer provide the details for the events we are looking for. "Unable to extract the event details."

  10. File Share Source Analysis - Better control over bigger environments

    It would be great to have a way to run a summary of network data analyzed. Our environment is large and we are possibly dealing with over ~90TB of network data. The ability to generate summary reports under planning section would add great value to our purpose. We want to know how much data we are dealing with prior actual start of planned migration.

    Ability to run summary network data discovery – Summary file Share analysis
    a) User name

    b) total network data ( GB )

    c) Number of file

    d) Mapped network data path

    Ability to run same reports…

  11. Report Request: Migration Activities

    I would like to generate a report on actions in my task list using the details on the ShareGate Desktop Tasks page and use the high-level information for things like progress and status reports. I do not see an option in my app. If it does not exist, please consider creating one and/or the option to make one in the custom report’s options. If it does exist, please send a link that I can reference.

  13. Allow User Profile information in reports

    Within different reports, we would need to see more information from the user's profile, like "Job Title", "Department" and more. Same with SharePoint Groups where the PMR should give out the description of the SharePoint Group

  14. Copy Structure with dependency knowledge

    I can't understand why I get errors that a list doesn't exist when it's processing a lookup field, even when the dependent list was already selected as a list to migrate. That seems like just doing some simple dependency logic ahead of time.

    Now, I have to run the same migration 3 times to slowly migrate the objects up the "dependency tree" , each migration has less and less errors, this just seems silly.

  17. Scheduled Tasks - be able to 'select all' or export for reference

    It would be fantastic if you'd allow for the selection of all items (drag to highlight) or export of the scheduled task list for informational purposes. We've had to delete our AppData a few times, and now have to reinstall, and it would be great if we could save the scheduled tasks as a reference for rebuilding.

    Thanks!

  18. New copy screen

    The new copy screen shows the tiles vertically and occupying lot of space towards down, and the history of previous copy sessions has very little room with vertical scroll, many working from home these days with laptop does not have comfortable look.

  19. Copy if different as a Copy Option

    Add an option to be able to copy all items that are different between the Source and Destination. Currently, only the incremental copy exists which will copy items that are newer at the Source. The request here is to be able to copy any items that aren't the same between the source and the destination, not only more recent
