  2. To be able to select to report objects that have no permissions after a migration

    After a migration - upgrade and rewrite - we have found some folders with no permissions "This object has no permissions" in the PMR. These are where users and or groups do not exist in the new system. With no time to go back and remigrate and no easy way to map these permissions anyway we are running reports on all areas and picking out these lines in the exported spreadsheet, then can update the permissions using a system administrator account. With more migrations to come we would like to be able to report direct.

  3. expand all 'view' buttons in the PMR

    "When we run a permissions matrix report, any inherited permissions usually show up like the image below. Is there a way to automatically ‘view’ these without having to go through possibly hundreds and manually clicking ‘view’ to expand these. With larger items, it makes it difficult to understand the export when you have to find the list library, see that it shows it’s inherited, and then scroll back up to the parent (which you could get wrong) to see what the permissions are for the item you first looked at. I’m looking for something similar to the ‘expand all groups’…

  4. Have the PMR work when running on whole tenants

    A lot of times, getting the Permission Matrix Report for all site collections within a tenant is required. Right now, selecting multiple site collections makes the report fail and never complete. If you have 10K OneDrives, 5K Office 365 Groups and 2K site collections, we would need an option to get the same information that the PMR provides, but on a bigger scope

  5. Permissions Matrix Needs to Include Group Membership

    The permissions matrix report needs to be include who is in each SharePoint group. Or that could be a separate report for group membership.

  6. Make an option to auto-expand the groups in PMR an option, not the default behavior.

    You might still need to consider to offer as a choice for users to choose to expand or not the groups in the PMR when auto-exporting it in a library, as I got an issue opening the report with groups expanded when the report is huge (complex site collection with too many unique permissions)

  7. Display the PMR dynamically

    I am forced to wait till report finish running. I want to be able to stop and just work with what i got so far. Waited for Matrix report for few hours. All i needed was a sample set.

  8. Add clickable links in the PMR

    I am on permissions matrix report results page and I want to click on a site and "go to that site." It is not a hyperlink. The hover over display shows the link location however I can't quickly go to it. I will have to export, save it, and then go to Excel and open it and then go to the location and then click on it. Not as fast as making the options a hyperlink. Can have an option on the top right, by the export, to say "make sites and document library/list, hyperlinks" where you can toggle those…

  9. Hub Site Reporting

    It be really great to run reports such as Permissions and everything else against a Hubsite and all associated sites. There are many groups people create that I don't care to know permissions for but I need to do reports for anything associated with our hubsite.

  10. Copy user permissions in Bulk

    Our company is doing Active Directory migrations now. All the users will get new accounts. This is for thousands of employees. Currently we are using ShareGate to copy user permissions one by one.

    Is there a way we could do it in bulk? We have the lists in Excel.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. Permissions matrix not reporting link-based permissions granting

    Used content search to find where a user had access to some content in a OneDrive. It successfully identified a file shared with a user via link. Sharegate completely misses this content.

    The document was shared via a sharing link in ODfB
    The user had accessed the document via the link. (Internal user)
    The UI in ODfB shows the user as having been given access via the sharing link
    The content search capability in the protection center shows they have access to the document
    Sharegate, however, does not show access to the document when you doing a permission matrix for…

  14. Resize Columns of the PMR

    I don't want to / need to export, however I want to expand the Given Through permisisons Matrix Reports results as group xxxxxx is a bit too long for the narrow given through column, if I could expand a little to the right, I could see the name w/o having to export. I'd like to drag to the right or left a bit, or click all to expand all, etc.

  15. Quick Select multiple users for PMR

    You can select specific users to run the PMR on, but you have to search each user one by one. If you want to scope down the PMR to a specific department of 40 users, you have to manually add those users by hand and it takes a long time.

  16. Add option to run multiple reports with a CSV file

    Add an option to run multiple reports based on parameter like URL, with a CSV file. Users would like the ability to report (Permissions Matrix Report in example) on multiple sites or drives, but it can be difficult to specify which ones and some users might want to feed a CSV file with URLs to do so

  17. Undo "restore inheritance"

    Add the option to "undo" permission changes on sites. For example if a user accidentally restores inheritance on a site, allow them to undo the changes and restore unique permissions as it was before.

  18. Display users under their SharePoint Groups

    When running a permissions matrx and expanding the SharePoing Groups can you make the users in that group appear under it so it keeps the users in that group together instead of lumped to getter because it doesn't make any since when looking at the exported report when I just have a list of users.

  19. Customized the Permission Matrix Report

    What to acheive:
    For the business users, we want to hide some columns and have some filtering (e.g. "Permission Levels" is not "Contribute").

    Business Case:
    We need to run this report quarterly for the business users. And to them, a lot of the fields don’t make any sense and can cause confusion. Therefore, we are hoping if there is an option to set the filters/hide columns.

    Can we do this through the Sharegate Shell?

  20. export and import permissions from permissions matrix report

    Some admins like to run the PMR often to keep a backup of their permissions handy in case they need to revert some. In some cases, it can be thousands of permissions for a user they need to restore and it would be a good feature, to be able to use an export of the permissions to restore them.
