  2. Display number of items copy structure - lists and libraries

    Suggestion - add the number of items in brackets or as anothe column on the Copy structure > Lists and libraries for the source and destination panes. E.g. Documents (6 items).
    This would be useful for migrations where you only copy used lists - copying empty libraries or lists over is of no value. I am aware there are other ways of viewing number of items, but would be good to know this information at a glance. Cheers!

  5. 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

  9. Ability to run reports of all active Workflow instances

    I am preparing to break the connection of workflow manager from our SharePoint environment which will cause any currently active 2013 workflows to fail. I would like a report that shows actively running workflow instances (with the ability to configure the report to show 2013 or 2010 workflow instances) so we can avoid any failures.

  10. Mass-configure/run permission reports across all sites

    I have two very common use-cases for my proposed idea. I'll first give the two examples;

    Example 1: We hold "Site Owners" as being responsible for ensuring their permissions are up to date. We like to enforce permission audits once-quarterly.

    Example 2: We acquired a competitor and are migrating their SharePoint environment into ours. It would be nice to provide all their Site Owners (typically 50+ individuals) with a permissions matrix that is relevant to them without having to manually manipulate, or rely on them to filter/sort a master permissions report.

    The proposed feature: Please consider adding checkbox/radio button option…

  12. Migrate modern MS Teams Wiki pages

    Migrate modern MS Teams Wiki pages. As of right now, we can migrate the .mht file in the background but we cannot re-establish it as a modern wiki page at the destination.

  13. Better task names

    I'm doing some migrations and would really like to see exactly from which library/site/list that i'm migrating to and from.
    i don't find "Copy 1 item from Network-
    Voice.... to Network..." very useful. the name of the item would be much better.

  14. Language detection by product

    The source is in Dutch, the destination is English. “documenten -> Documents”. My question is why aren’t languages detected by the product?

  17. Add the site template column to the Check permissions report

    I'm running the Check Permissions report for an individual user to see what sites the user has access. It would be helpful to know which template the site is using.

  18. Improve file share analysis

    Hi, can you confirm whether it's possible to add additional columns that pick up existing metadata when using the "Migration - Plan - Source Analysis - File Share" report. In additional to the default columns I'd like to find out when a document was last created and last modified from a File Share. Is this possible? Also can you confirm whether ShareGate can analyse file content to identify sensitive content before migration. Thank you.

  20. Report to identify O365 group connected with MS Teams

    Hi,

    It would be useful to have a report to help us to identify MS Teams. All modern teamsites have O365 group connected so it's difficult to find out how many O365 group who have MS Teams.
