  1. Create document sets on the fly

    "We are looking to move documents from one library to another, where document sets will be introduced along the documents to be moved, but where the document sets have no corresponding item in the source (ie no folder or existing document set). Is this possible to achieve with SG?"

  2. Support for migration of Quick Parts, Headers and footers.

    I am currently facing the issue of no support for MS Word Quick Parts and also not updating headers and footers within documents.

    As far as i am aware there is no PowerShell to correct this. I think this would be a beneficial new feature within sharegate as QuickParts are now none functioning when copied from environments like sharepoint 2010, same issue with headers and footers.

  3. Display number of items copy structure - lists and libraries

    Suggestion - add the number of items in brackets or as anothe column on the Copy structure > Lists and libraries for the source and destination panes. E.g. Documents (6 items).
    This would be useful for migrations where you only copy used lists - copying empty libraries or lists over is of no value. I am aware there are other ways of viewing number of items, but would be good to know this information at a glance. Cheers!

  7. Copy Structure with dependency knowledge

    I can't understand why I get errors that a list doesn't exist when it's processing a lookup field, even when the dependent list was already selected as a list to migrate. That seems like just doing some simple dependency logic ahead of time.

    Now, I have to run the same migration 3 times to slowly migrate the objects up the "dependency tree" , each migration has less and less errors, this just seems silly.

    Hi, Task forms are not being copied with Nintex workflows. Big issues when there are many tasks and when we're going from DEV to PROD.

  11. Copy if different as a Copy Option

    Add an option to be able to copy all items that are different between the Source and Destination. Currently, only the incremental copy exists which will copy items that are newer at the Source. The request here is to be able to copy any items that aren't the same between the source and the destination, not only more recent

  14. Preserve the modern home.aspx page when migrating to a new modern site

    I'm having trouble migrating to Modern Sites. I have nearly 1000 site collections/subsite in a SharePoint 2016 farm that I'm migrating to SharePoint Online. However, we're wanting to keep the modern look and feel. No matter what mapping settings and options I try, I cannot accomplish this. The end result is a SharePoint Online site collection that is using the STS#3 template, but looks like SharePoint 2016. The issue appears to take place at the end of the copy content operation when the home.aspx file is copied over to the Site Pages library. Is there any way to change this…

  18. Language detection by product

    The source is in Dutch, the destination is English. “documenten -> Documents”. My question is why aren’t languages detected by the product?
