  1. Add Google Drive File ID to the migration report following a Google Workspace migration

    It is a consistent ask of our users to provide mapping reports where we show them the Google Drive URL and the new SharePoint URL. Having the Google Drive File ID in these reports would allow us to perform a simple Join between a this report and an export report from Google to generate these mappings without risk of incorrect info.

  2. Show all warnings, so a clean migration can happen

    Hi ShareGate support,

    During a recent migration we had a bad experience of losing data, that could have been picked up if we saw all the errors/warnings in the UI.

    Sharegate showed 1 Warning (See Sharegate-Migrationwarning-1.png) when in fact there were 2 warnings (See Sharegate-Migrationwarning-2.png).

    The 1st warning is:
    'The time zone at the destination is not the same as the source.’
    This is also the only warning shown in the UI on the first screen.
    However when the item details are opened we can see that there are 2 warnings. We missed this.

    The 2nd warning is more important…

  3. Bulk renaming of Teams

    My company uses a suffix on team/group names (based on the AD 'department' attribute). So when migrating teams from another tenant, into our own, we need to rename the teams with a fitting suffix.

    Of course a lot can be achieved with Powershell. But from a Power-user perspective it would be great if this option was added directly in ShareGate. As of today it is only possible to rename each team one by one. Which is quite time consuming.

  4. Support migration of translated pages

    When copying a SitePages library with translated pages (Microsoft std functionality) you will loose the connection from the source page -> translated page.
    Please update so it will do that, otherwise it's not possible to copy a translated site.

  6. Link ShareGate Desktop with Azure Storage Accounts/Azure Blob Storage

    Is there a possibility that we can link ShareGate with Azure Blob or Azure Storage accounts? Having direct access to migrate and move data to Blob storage would save a large amount of time since we wouldn't have to wait for large amounts of data to download, and then spend more time waiting for it to upload via their Storage Explorer application.

  8. Please display Destination Path in migration reports, also if items are skipped.

    When importing files based on Excel-file input, folders might be added to DestinationPath column., and there is currently no way to reconstruct the complete url to the already existing item, based on the other properties of migration report item details.

  9. Download/export content to blob storage instead of local disk

    Our org are heavy users of SharePoint, however with SharePoint storage being expensive, we tend to archive old data (or archive all data from old, unneeded SharePoint sites).

    We use ShareGate to download document libraries from SharePoint, and manually upload them into our Azure Blob Storage accounts.

    Is there a possibility that we can link ShareGate with Azure Blob or Azure Storage accounts? Having direct access to migrate and move data to Blob storage would save a large amount of time since we wouldn't have to wait for large amounts of data to download, and then spend more time waiting…

  10. Configure teams incremental copies

    I want to do incremental copy on teams, but I can't configure anything since the team sites remain grey and can't be selected.

  12. Support for incremental Teams copy via PowerShell

    Is it possible to add incremental support to the Copy-Team cmdlet in ShareGate PowerShell. The initial copy is supported, allowing bulk migrations using e.g. CSV-input, but performing incremental migrations currently requires the UI where each incremental needs to be started separately.

  15. Option to disable migrating users as Members and Owners of M365 Groups

    During a site collection merge operation into the site collection of a M365 Group, ShareGate Desktop will grab the members of the source SP Group "Members" and promote them to "Members" of the M365 Group. There should be an opt-out feature that a user can uncheck if they don't want this to happen

  16. Notify users when migrating important structural items, such as homepage

    Please notify us when a migration will overwrite important structural items.
    In example, I have created a new homepage in my destination prior to my migration projet and the new homepage was overwritten by the old one from my source site. Thanks

  18. Automatically split migration between multiple instances of ShareGate Desktop

    As we perform more tenant migration work I would like to see a 'Master - Drone' capability in multi license environments. For example, instead of manually dividing a list of Teams or OneDrive sites into multiple batches, I would like to be able to give a Master node the list of all sites, or even the ability to 'Select All' from the GUI and instruct the Master to divvy up the work to one of X drone installations. This would provide a tenfold increase in migration setup productivity as well as the potential to more effectively balance the workload than…

  19. Allow for a Staging option for Teams copy.

    Allow for a Staging option for Teams copy.

    Staging would create the Team, M365 Group, SharePoint site, create permissions groups, etc. but wouldn't populate any content, members/owners, messages, etc.
    This would allow for a faster migration time by allowing the Teams structure to be created separate of the content migration.

    Of course you would also need to have the ability to do a 2nd portion of the migration separate from the staging portion. (as of 15.0.1 this could be the incremental copy for Teams.)

  20. Automating spaces within site URLs

    Is there a way to change an "illegal character" of a space within the url, not just at the start or the end.
    For example the URL -" /sites/pwa/HM012 - 2016 End of year party/ ".
