  5. Having mutiple Excel files created when a report exceeds the row limit

    It would be nice if the tool would create multiple Excel worksheets in order to get all the results if it exceeds to Excel row limit.

    For example, when the 1 million limit is exceeded, the tool could create additional worksheets with a -1, -2, -3 added to the end of the worksheet.

  7. Ability to copy Teams Channel content into another channel - Merge Teams channels

    Admin redacted:

    Add the ability to merge teams channels into existing teams channels.


    Original description:

    With the Teams copy functionality it would be nice to be able to select a channel within the same Team as the source team.
    Example would be using the functionality to merge multiple channels within the same team into one new channel.

  8. Improve migration error messages clarity

    This error message is not helpful - "There was an error while loading the items. Please contact ShareGate support." . This one is also not helpful, since the Svc account we're connecting with has Site Collection Admin permissions, and was verified in Sharegate, when using the 'Check Permissions' feature - "When using the insane mode to Microsoft 365, it is necessary to have 'Site Collection Administrator' permissions at your destination."

  9. New options for the promote subsites feature

    Allow Administrators section choices so that it could be either a) Admins from parent site, b) site owners from subsite, or c) both Admins from parent + site owners from subsite.
    Scenario, migrating hundreds of sites where current site collection admins will not be admins and having remove them from all subsites is a lot of extra work.

  10. Improve display of names in reports

    Love the new Teams Report! However, the list of Owners and Members is comma delimited which make the report hard to read with LastName, Firstname, Lastname, Firstname etc . . Email addresses would be more useful, or at least something other than the comma delimiter if we can only have Lastname, Firstname. Thanks ShareGate for continually improving

  18. Add "–" (en dash / Alt+0150) character to illegal characters

    When trying to migrate we are coming across folders and files that have the invalid characher "–" (en dash / Alt+0150) which is automatically created from a normal dash in programmes like word.
    Sharegate seems to not be able to migrate these folders and files due to this character.

    Is it possible to add lines into the illegal characters list?

  19. Stop Email Notifications - Microsoft 365 Groups

    Do not send email notifications to users when you migrate to Microsoft 365 Groups. Some users can be in many different sites and receive many notifications for being added to Microsoft 365 Groups during migrations

  20. Groups listing of explicit permissions for whole Permission Matrix Report

    In the Permissions Matrix report, when all expanded to show group members, it would be much better to have a separate section of the report that only shows the various groups' members once, rather than repeating them on everything. Ideally the report would then just list the group names once, and then explicit permissions listed individually. Does that make sense?

    Same with the Excel export. Possibly export the report with 2 tabs, one is the matrix the other is the list of members of all groups.
