  4. Support trailing fullstop

    If a folder on a fileshare has a trailing full stop it won't migrate as it's classed as an illegal character. ShareGate doesn't count this and it fails. ShareGate spots other illegal characters but not this one.

    e.g.

    ClientName.A.A.A.

    A great feature would be a manual character replacement.

  5. Manually input file path for import from file Share

    While trying to import from a file share, I cannot navigate to the folder I need to import from because I have to navigate from the root file path. Due to security reasons, I do not have permission to the root. It would be great if I could just paste in the file path, to which I do have permission to access.

    As it's currently set Up I cannot do what I'm being asked and will have to get permission to all root paths in order to import. This just isn't feasible at my work and will cause a lot…

  7. Improve performance when there is a lot of teams

    I want to try the new Teams Migration feature, and we have about 35000 Teams - It takes about 1 hour to search that list, and when I finally get the Team I'm searching for, I can't select it

  10. Migrate files from Explorer View that are not visible in the library

    Files that exists under the "Explorer View" of a library that are not available within the library itself (Like folders with "_files" in the end of the name that are created by HTML files hosted in a library) cannot be migrated directly from ShareGate Desktop. We currently need to map a drive to that library and perform a migration from there. It would be great to be able to pick them up even if the files cannot be found in the library directly

  11. Add a dynamic Time Range Filter - updated in last X days

    Having the possibility to choose in the filters, items that were migrated in the last X days. This would be ideal for scheduled tasks for example.

  12. Merging reports with Export-Report (PowerShell)

    I have thousands of folders to migrate with custom properties to Sharepoint online document sets. Migration is fine with single folder content, but Export-report will produce massive amount of reports and it's not customer friendly to have folders migrated and then have thousand report to read. Of course, in future it would be nice to have -Append parameter to Export-Report command to achieve this gui allowed functionality.

  14. Support Advanced Permissions from File Share

    Currently, only the basic permissions from NTFS are supported during migration. We would need to have all advanced and special permissions to be available to be mapped during migration

  18. Stop Email Notifications - Microsoft 365 Groups

    Do not send email notifications to users when you migrate to Microsoft 365 Groups. Some users can be in many different sites and receive many notifications for being added to Microsoft 365 Groups during migrations

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
