  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 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

  14. 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…

  15. 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.)

  16. 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/ ".

  18. When checking path file length for importing files, include checkbox for OneDrive Sync used to account for c:\users\username\Company\

    So, I have migrated TB of data and when I run the pre-check all is good, including the file and file path check. BUT, when a users syncs these files using OneDrive, and extra 35-50 characters are used for OneDrive location such as c:\users\username\CompanyNAme-Library.

    Many of times, I migrate files and users try to open and save files and get vague errors and I find that they are over the windows character limit.

    Suggestion: Maybe ShareGate can have a checkbox or option to enter in OneDrive location and take that into account for planning migration

  19. Include the option to choose the site title and URL when merging sites

    When merging two sites with Copy Structure and Content, ShareGate Desktop defaults to the destination name and URL without another choice.

    It would be good to add the option to choose between the source and destination names, or even add a new one.
