  1. Added expiration date of external sahring links

    When running a report for files shared external we see that there is files shared anonymous, however when digging into this we see that most of our links are expired. Is there a report that shows expiration?

  4. 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

  5. Key Fields For Lookups

    It would be nice to be able to set the key fields for lookup columns to be able to avoid the 'There are multiple destination items that correspond to the given key values for the lookup item...' error. For example, in the property mappings if the column is a lookup column it could be expanded to show all of the columns in the list being looked up and have the ability to set the keys as needed like you can for a normal property mapping.

  8. Renaming O365 Groups during migration

    Hello, I would like to see the ability to rename the 0365 group from one tenant to another tenant. example if we have a pilot tenant and if the prefix of a group in pilot is pilot_ we would like the ability to make sure that can be renamed during the migration.

  10. Remember "Authentication", "Allow single sign-on (SSO)", "Add connection to explorer" choice

    Hi,

    I frequently use ShareGate Desktop to copy documents from and old on-premise SharePoint environment to newly created sites in SharePoint Online and each time I start a new copy operation I have to make the same 3 choices on the "Select destination" screen. I set Authentication to Browser (it always defaults to "Current Windows user"), I deselect Allow SSO because I have to log in as a separate user from the one in Windows (licensing reasons), and lastly I usually don't want to add the connection to explorer.

    My suggestion is for ShareGate Desktop to remember the current choices…

  12. Add a visual indicator to distinguish migration using Insane mode

    while we have ‘Insane Mode’ enabled, there’s no visual marker when looking at a migration report that it was, or wasn’t used. I can check my cloud storage to confirm there’s data there, but I really wish that there was something quick to see this file was moved with insane mode or this migration was done with insane mode, rather than having to dig.

  13. Property Mappings - Set all

    Whilst setting metadata property mappings, it would save me a lot of time if I was able to set the same for all fields. For example, I wanted to "Ignore" 30 out of 35 fields and had to select "ignore" individually.
    Perhaps having a Set all to Ignore (or similar) would be useful?

  15. Copy Views

    To have the ability to copy only the views from a list to another would be a great addition to ShareGate Desktop.

  18. filter sites by hubsite association

    Need ability to sort, filter, search Hubs and associated sites - any/all operations relating to a Hub and their associated sites.

    For instance, in "Explorer" tab a top-right filter should be "Hub Site", and when selected, it only shows Hub sites in the list, upon clicking, a select hub site, you can then navigate the various sites in the hub - assuming you have access.

    Similar for reporting, you should be able to specify a hub and navigate through it.

  19. Copy list on the same site

    I can't seem to copy a list to the same site, as it complains that there are two of the same name. There should be a "rename" feature that allows this to happen, but the user is prompted for the new name. This is a bit annoying, as a former admin decided to make copies of the list as part of an archival feature.
