  4. Lookup field not intact

    Instead of providing multiple workaround to retain look up column
    just have the login to do it in automated way.
    Other migration tools do it by first migration without lookup column and in second iteration wih lookup colunns.

  5. Show all results in ShareGate people picker fields

    When searching for users and groups in ShareGate's people picker, there's a hard limit (25) on the number of results that can be shown in the scrolling box. In the case where there's an AD object named "XYZ" and then 25 AD objects named "XYZW", I can never find/select "XYZ" as the other 25 show up first.

  6. SharPoint Online Audit Reports have been deprecated

    The legacy Audit Reports are no longer available online and have been moved to the Exchange Unified Audit logs in the Security and Compliance Center. The Audit Reports in ShareGate Desktop no longer provide the details for the events we are looking for. "Unable to extract the event details."

  7. Date Picture Taken

    It will be very useful for us to import the 'Date Picture Taken' attribute from photos into SharePoint 'Date Picture Taken' column in Picture libraries.

  9. Additional columns to Source Analaysis

    I’m just starting my next migration project – based on SharePoint Analysis, ShareGate is providing. May I ask for a few more columns in this report? I’d need those additional columns:

    Owner(s) – People Names – Access Level

    Owner Group – Group Name – Access Level

    Access Request Mail – Address(es)

    Created – Date, when Site has been created

    I can see all this information in ShareGate Explorer, but unfortunately it does not find it’s way to the Analysis Report. I think it might help much more others as well – and columns not needed, are simply hided, but to…

  11. Different default connection for both source and destination sites

    One enhancement I'd like to pose for consideration is the ability to have a different default connection for both source and destination sites. I am rarely migrating content between the same site and this feature would come in handy when I am updating the content of several lists between 2 databases.

  13. Suspend alerts for bulk metadata updates

    Please add an option when making bulk metadata updates to suspend alerts. When changing content types on any library, we often have several (sometimes 100s) of people subscribed to get alerts. In the past, we've used a PowerShell script to suspend alerts, but sometimes we forget. Adding this as an option would be a lifesaver!

  14. ShareGate Desktop - Mobile Monitor App for my phone

    I would love to see a mobile app available for example my Samsung Phone. Allowing you to establish a connection to your ShareGate Desktop instance to monitor the status of Migrations that are running, or have completed. So you can quickly check on a status of a long migration process, look at completed Tasks.

    Key would be able to see Errors, Warning, Successes. Next would be able to receive notifications when a Task Completes on the mobile device.

  16. Filter out public site when running reports

    Another suggestion would be to be able to run a permissions report that allows you to exclude public sites. I sometimes get to asked to run permissions report for a user for an entire tenant and the report can be quite large because it includes public sites, which is correct because they do have permissions but it isn’t very useful to the person who is reviewing the request. If there was a way to exclude them when running the report or if the report could indicate which sites are public this would help them filter out these sites.

  17. Ability to add folder in the copy content screen

    you could add the ability to add a new folder to your source or destination libraries right before you hit Start Copy. that way i dont have to navigate back to sharepoint to create that folder to put my content in.

  18. Migration event hooks for scripted migrations

    Be able to register hooks for various lifecycle events during a migration. For example, we are migrating content from fileshares. We need to be able to dynamically generate SGUM files based on who has permissions to a given file. We can't generate a mapping file up front as we have >100,000 people in AD who "could" be involved which would lead to a huge SGUM file. If we could register a handler for each file being migrated and supply the mapping information to be used for that file before it was migrated, that would be awesome.

    This would also allow…

  19. Rename scheduled tasks

    I rely on being able to rename my tasks. Otherwise, it's generic like "Copy 100 items from Documents to Documents". I need to know what site/subsite it is, and so on. It appears there is no way to rename a scheduled task, even when it's a recurring one. Only the migration report generated after can be renamed.

  20. Restructure feature - copy/convert/reroute sharing links

    When promoting (sub)sites, it should be possible to copy/convert/reroute
    generated sharing links from the original structure.
