  2. Show all results in ShareGate people picker fields

    When searching for users and groups in ShareGate's people picker, there's a hard limit (25) on the number of results that can be shown in the scrolling box. In the case where there's an AD object named "XYZ" and then 25 AD objects named "XYZW", I can never find/select "XYZ" as the other 25 show up first.

  3. Hiding the Delete Permanently button when all site collections are checked

    We were thinking about giving access to Sharegate to our Service Desk personnel so they could manage our OneDrive requests when we noticed the delete permanently button.

    The crazy thing is that even when we click on the checkbox to select all 4, 758 site collections in our tenant, (46tb worth of data), that delete permanently link is still active.

    Wow, that's something to give an Admin grey hairs. There's no way we are giving access to the Service Desk type personnel to Sharegate with that ability. Yes with it hidden they could still delete sites individually, but they couldn't…

  4. Export Structure

    Similar to the download content option, it would be nice to have an option to download/export a site's structure. I’m trying to bring over everything EXCEPT document library content to a remote lab for testing. Most important being the Content Types, Columns, Document Libraries and settings. I need to test some solutions against the sites without testing against production since the company doesn't have a dev site.

  5. Sort and Filter User Interface in Explorer

    There are opportunities to simplify the UI (and provide a more familiar SharePoint-like experience), without sacrificing Sharegate's design.

    In Explorer, object "Display By" options are provided in the column heading. [BTW: In our release, the only options are "Title" and "URL". It would be nice to have a third option that would allow users to sort by platform (i.e. Tenants, Farms, so on).]

    Filtering, on the other hand, is provided by button controls (e.g. "Office 365 Tenant", "Web Application", etc.)

    The interface could be even better if the list of connections had column headings that sort AND filter, rather than…

  6. Provide granular searches for site collections

    For organizations with large numbers of site collections, the ShareGate reporting feature is a great way to gather data. However, if only a subset of those sites are needed, it can be tedious to scroll through the entire list and manually check the box next to each needed site. Since there is already a search box, it would be great if some kind of 'advanced search' were available for narrowing down site collections based on known elements of the URL. Using regular expressions would be ideal, but even the ability to use Boolean expression would be a very helpful.

  7. Add a Toggle Button to Enable or Disable Offline Client Access

    It would be really cool if we could enable or disable Offline Client Access via the UI for individual document libraries (similar to how you can enable or disable the "Allow New Folders" option).

  8. Provide a 'disconnect' for multiple items within the Explorers' bulk action panel

    Once I have imported multiple connections into the Explorer I would like to be able to disconnect a certain count of them.
    Instead removing all connections and re-adding the ones I want to proceed further again is the only option so far.
    Neither the context menu for a single connection nor the action panel for bulk operation or any cmdlet offers this.

  9. Treeview in Connections

    Has there been any discussion on bringing back the treeview for the explorer pane? I've tried to get used to the new navigation, but the amount of clicking it takes now to drill down find sites is frustrating at best. Even as an option would be great.

  10. Fully Display URLs in the Explorer

    I am using Sharegate 8.1.0. Many of the site collections I manage have long urls, and I cannot see the entire url in the Explorer view, making it difficult to quickly choose the right site collection when I need to deal with a singe site collection. Is it possible to make the column that shows the site url user-configurable to be wider when needed?

  11. Add option to generate the metadata as CSV using Download

    Sometimes there could be issues with the number of items and/or the column width in Excel when exporting the metadata along your content with the Download option in Explorer. Having an option to export content as a CSV could help work around these limitations for some users.

  12. Clean Orphaned Users Except External Users

    What I’m looking for is the functionality that will allow me to clean all orphaned users except the external users. Whether that is accomplished by allowing cleaning up orphaned users starting from the report, or by providing filter-functionality in the “cleanup command” is not important to me (but it could be wise to provide both!).

    Being able to filter external users and then clean only orphaned users.

  13. Add a connection popup in the Explorer when the connection expires

    Currently, if the connection token or cookie expires in the Explorer, the connected site will return an error in the red band. Instead, it should prompt a popup to redo the connection when you click on the error.

  15. Initial load time is REALLY LONG

    The first time I connect to my tenant's Admin website (tenantName-admin.sharepoint.com), I get the spinning wait-cursor for a long time. It would be nice to get a partial list quickly, and be able to search for a site without waiting for the whole list of all sites to be downloaded.

  17. Preserve selection of lower level items in Explorer

    When using the Explorer, it would be great if the selection of lower level site objects such as OneDrive libraries was preserved when moving back up a level. At this time, if i select libraries in a OneDrive then navigate back to the web app, my previous selections are lost.

  19. Permission Report at the Document Level in the Explorer Tab

    I am looking for Document Library - Folder level permission Report, which further drill down to each user in group its assigned.

    Details :
    In Document Library Level, I'm able to generate Permission Matrix Report in a high-level, but if I've entered in a Folder of that Document Library, the PMR button is no longer available. So I'm unable to generate report for specific Folder in detail.
    - I'd like to generate a report for a specific folder inside a document library and also have an export option in .htm format for better visibility.
