  1. Ability to report on empty/null values

    When I'm editing the options in a custom report, I noticed that under Filters I'm unable to look for an empty/null value. I'd like to be able to do something like Where Owners contains "", but the "Add User or Group" field requires something to be valid. Even better would be an enhancement to add "is empty" and "is not empty" choices to the Operator dropdown.

    • Detect Which O365 Service Created a Site (ex: Yammer, Teams, etc.)

      Is there any way to see what O365 groups were created by Yammer? If not that would a useful filter to add in Explorer. Thanks.

        • Display Site Collections Admins in the Permissions Matrix

          I've discovered that the Permissions Matrix report is not returning the members of the site collection administrators group. Many companies have had a hodge podge of administrators over the years and the site collection administrators group is often cluttered with users who should not have permission. I have written a Powershell script to fetch the members of this group, as well as the primary and seondary owners of each site collection. I think these values are a glaring omission in the permissions matrix. I would like to see these users side by side with site owners and not have to…

          • support image rendition

            Image rendition is currently not kept when migrating from SharePoint 2013 and up.

              • add an option to migrate items declared as records so they're no longer records at the destination

                Since SharePoint Online is now using labels and deprecating in place records, having an option to remove the declaration would be useful for some users.

                • Export Start & End Date of Migration Tasks

                  Not being able to export the start and completion time for jobs caused us to have to manually record this for the client. Why this wasn't included in the export was surprising.

                  • Add a Toggle Button to Enable or Disable Offline Client Access

                    It would be really cool if we could enable or disable Offline Client Access via the UI for individual document libraries (similar to how you can enable or disable the "Allow New Folders" option).

                    • Copy User Permissions Options

                      It would be great if when you Copy a users permissions that in the "Results" page there was the ability to have options. i.e. I copy a users permisisons for an entire farm, but want to remove permissions from 1 or 2 groups.

                        There are times where it would be really helpful to have row numbers in various lists, maybe just to left of Status, ideally a quick checkbox at top of list to hide/show.

                        Thanks.

                        • Restart Option for Reporting

                          is there a way to put up a Most Recent for Reporting - Targets for those that you just did and want to go back to? Like auditing to say "restart" or redo with some editing.

                          • Make Errors and Warnings Clickable

                            Hello, It would be nice to have Errors and Warnings clickable when looking at the migration task instead of having to manually create a filter. Thanks.

                              • Migration Dashboard

                                it would be great to have a dashboard page where I could see stats on my migrations, like throughput, items per second, etc. I routinely try to compute these values now but it is very manual.

                                  Would be helpful if I could expand all the items on the pre-check results list. It would be much faster than having to export the entire list to a file and open it in another program.

                                  • support lookup columns in sibling sites

                                    Some users might have created lookups that point to sibling sites, or subsites under the same site. When you have that, you'll get an error on your column:

                                    The lookup column cannot be copied because the list ‘[list name]' is not in a parent site or in the same site as the column.

                                    It would be useful if there was a way to still support the column dependency as it is at the source. As manually rebuilding the source before migration is not always possible.

                                    • Migrate to Windows Server Local drive as Destination

                                      The ability to copy from SharePoint site to Windows Server Local drive.

                                      I can’t find a code in ShareGate powershell module that can do an incremental copy from our SharePoint site (source) to our Cloud server (destination). We’re going to run this powershell in the windows server 2012 R2 task scheduler

                                      Basically, the goal is to create a schedule task of incremental copy from SharePoint site to Windows Server Local drive.

                                      • Make the auto-update off by default

                                        When installing Sharegate and first launching the application, some users might face an auto-update and end up with the latest version.
                                        For some organisations, they might not want to allow the update if they need to approve the software.
                                        A solution would be to make the auto-update be turned off by default.
