    • Orphaned users: Distinguish disabled vs deleted user accounts

      Please update your orphaned user report to distinguish disabled vs deleted user accounts. Metalogix ControlPoint can do this and it's very handy in an environment like ours where we often disable users if they are out on extended leave.

      • Library analysis

        my use-case was the desire to just export a spreadsheet of all folders and files within the document library, and Source Analysis appeared to be the way to do that. If I analyse the entire Site Collection and export that as a spreadsheet, I will then need to filter out all irrelevant sites, pages, libraries, folders, files. Perhaps a Library Analysis could be added as an option?

        • Add the list/library URL in documents reporting

          When running the report to identify all checked out files it would be great if there was a was to have a column that lists just the document library without the file name. A variant of the "location" column but without the file name.

          This could then be used to go to the document library containing the checked out files. In cases of the "never checked in version" situation the site admin could then open the take ownership menu to take ownership. When migrating hundreds of sites with hundreds of document libraries this would be a great time saver unless…

          • Sort and Filter User Interface in Explorer

            There are opportunities to simplify the UI (and provide a more familiar SharePoint-like experience), without sacrificing Sharegate's design.

            In Explorer, object "Display By" options are provided in the column heading. [BTW: In our release, the only options are "Title" and "URL". It would be nice to have a third option that would allow users to sort by platform (i.e. Tenants, Farms, so on).]

            Filtering, on the other hand, is provided by button controls (e.g. "Office 365 Tenant", "Web Application", etc.)

            The interface could be even better if the list of connections had column headings that sort AND filter, rather than…

            • dependencies reporting

              I’m wondering if there’s a way to check dependencies (i.e. other referenced lists/items) before migrating, so that I would be able to give end users a list of everything being copied to a new location?

              • Allow licensing management from the Sharegate portal and Sharegate support portal

                It would be important to have an area available in the Sharegate Portal (http://sharegate.com) and Sharegate support Portal (https://support-desktop.sharegate.com) with all licenses associated with our account and be able to manage them, including deativating the license. We had a problem with the PC where Sharegate was installed and were unable to recover it and the only way we currently have is to access the licensing portal to manage our license is through the Sharegate Desktop application. If the application is not available (problems with the PC), we cannot acess the licensing management page and have to…

                • Copy user permissions in Bulk

                  Our company is doing Active Directory migrations now. All the users will get new accounts. This is for thousands of employees. Currently we are using ShareGate to copy user permissions one by one.

                  Is there a way we could do it in bulk? We have the lists in Excel.

                  • selectively preserve/exclude permissions

                    When importing from a file share, it would be nice to have to ability to preserve permissions on folders but ignore permissions on files.

                      • Allow multiple windows

                        Add a setting which when enabled, and you double click the sharegate.exe it opens a new process, so you can view/do 2 different things on 2 seperate screens.

                            • Restart cancelled Report from Tasks

                              A suggestion:

                              I was running a report and needed to go. So I cancelled the report while it was not done.

                              When I was at home I started a new report with the same parameters.

                              I could not resume the other one I cancelled earlier.

                              When I started the new report it was very fast with the first data because, I think, it was cashed.

                              Why not use this and make it possible for users to resume a report that was canceled earlier?

                                apply user mapping to permissions only (exclude from metadata so invalid user values are still preserved in columns)
                                -
                                Currently we are using Sharegate powershell module to automate our migration. We have used a user mapping file(.sgum) which includes an explicit mapping for invalid users. However, our requirement is to keep metadata(created by, modified by) as it is (even it is an invalid user) after migration but to replace the item permission with mapped destination user. We noticed, when we use sgum file it replaces both metadata and item permission. Is there a way to stop replacing the metadata as…

                                  • Item Count on list/libraries with Site Collection (or new) Report

                                    It would be extremely useful to have an item count for all list/libraries within a site collection.

                                    We are migrating sites and would like to verify that all content has come over. Currently, we don't see a nice way of showing this.

                                    We do not want to provide the migration results as the validation report as it has too much unneeded information, but are instead looking for something similar to the Site Collection report.

                                    Thanks,
                                    Alex

                                        • Migrate SharePoint calendar to Office 365 Group calendar

                                          A standard SharePoint calendar, on-premise or else, could be used as an Office 365 Group Calendar. Some users might wish to migrate their old team site calendar as such.
