    Very disappointed this is not possible, I now have to write a custom script to do this very straightforward operation.

  5. Copy Task forms

    Hi, Task forms are not being copied with Nintex workflows. Big issues when there are many tasks and when we're going from DEV to PROD.

  6. Allow PowerShell manipulation of the Metadata section of the Copy Options

    the New-PropertyTemplate cmdlet doesn't offer to affect the "Metadata" section of Copy Options during PowerShell migrations. Having the option to set a column to "Set Mapped Value or Default" through the script would allow us to have more control over a PowerShell migration

  9. Suggestion for the Promote feature

    I was unable to use the Promote feature for my project. I wanted to promote 300+ subsites.


    1. All subsites were in one site collection. A feature in the UI to bulk select them is missing.


    2. I had to change the url per site because they contained spaces, and the url is reused as Alias by ShareGate. It does not resolve the problem automatically. Also the UI does not support changing settings for all selected subsites.


    3. I created a PowerShell script to automatically create a vallid url from the original url. But when using Promote from PowerShell in a for-loop, the…

  12. Enable batch slection - Cleaning Orphaned Users

    When selecting specific users. It is tedious to selecting individual tick boxes when you are not selecting all the accounts to be deleted

    Could you please enable batch selection using the SHIFT key to select all the items between the two selected checkboxes

  16. To be able to select to report objects that have no permissions after a migration

    After a migration - upgrade and rewrite - we have found some folders with no permissions "This object has no permissions" in the PMR. These are where users and or groups do not exist in the new system. With no time to go back and remigrate and no easy way to map these permissions anyway we are running reports on all areas and picking out these lines in the exported spreadsheet, then can update the permissions using a system administrator account. With more migrations to come we would like to be able to report direct.

  17. Preserve the modern home.aspx page when migrating to a new modern site

    I'm having trouble migrating to Modern Sites. I have nearly 1000 site collections/subsite in a SharePoint 2016 farm that I'm migrating to SharePoint Online. However, we're wanting to keep the modern look and feel. No matter what mapping settings and options I try, I cannot accomplish this. The end result is a SharePoint Online site collection that is using the STS#3 template, but looks like SharePoint 2016. The issue appears to take place at the end of the copy content operation when the home.aspx file is copied over to the Site Pages library. Is there any way to change this…

  18. Merge option not persisted when running a pre-check

    In the last couple of site copies I have done, if I choose the Merge option then run a check then go back to check the options again before I run it for real, the Merge option is no longer set.

  19. Adding relative dates to Report and Scheduling

    Is it possible to use relative dates in custom reports (and scheduled reports? I only seem to be able to enter a fixed date

    For example what I'd like to do is run an automated report on the 1st of every month which shows List items with a created date in the past month.
