  1. ShareGate Online version

    ShareGate should have online version. It will be really helpful for the user to login from anywhere and can work on migration. Licence can be given by office 365 user ID or ShareGate can have there own customer ID and login.

  2. Bigger font sizes for high resolution screens

    It would be useful to have the ability to easily increase the size of the font.  I have been using ShareGate via our sever and the font is so small as to be almost unreadable.  This may be due to the fact that I am using a very high resolution monitor on my computer and using his to access the server via remote desktop.

  3. Allow licensing management from the Sharegate portal and Sharegate support portal

    It would be important to have an area available in the Sharegate Portal (http://sharegate.com) and Sharegate support Portal (https://support-desktop.sharegate.com) with all licenses associated with our account and be able to manage them, including deativating the license. We had a problem with the PC where Sharegate was installed and were unable to recover it and the only way we currently have is to access the licensing portal to manage our license is through the Sharegate Desktop application. If the application is not available (problems with the PC), we cannot acess the licensing management page and have to…

  4. Allow multiple windows

    Add a setting which when enabled, and you double click the sharegate.exe it opens a new process, so you can view/do 2 different things on 2 seperate screens.

  5. Ability to Export Scheduled Tasks List

    I am in the midst of replacing the Sharegate folders again due to issues with connections. We have 70 scheduled tasks that have to be manually recreated each time we have to start over with Sharegate folders. If there was a way to export the scheduled jobs, it would make life so much easier.

    Thanks!

  6. Dark Edition or Option to Change the Interface to a Dark Theme

    I have been using ShareGate for over 4 years, and it is one of the only tools I use that does not offer a Dark Theme. Could you introduce the option for Color Theming.

  7. Make the auto-update off by default

    When installing Sharegate and first launching the application, some users might face an auto-update and end up with the latest version.
    For some organisations, they might not want to allow the update if they need to approve the software.
    A solution would be to make the auto-update be turned off by default.

  8. Log all user actions in Sharegate

    When performing actions, successful or not, some organizations might need some logging of all the user actions done in the UI, like what options they used and what actions they performed. This can be a requirement in example, to be BIR compliant (a Dutch standard, based on ISO/IEC 27002).

  11. Remove the Screen Resolution Limit

    Through RDP i can not change the Server Screen Resolution and Sharegate does not show all important button at the bottom part of window if the height of the screen resolution part is less than 720. Just a suggestion that Sharegate window should not have fixed height. If we can have scrollbar for smaller screen resolutions that would be great.

  12. License group management

    Allow ShareGate accounts with multiple seats to have a primary and secondary administrator, who can manage those seats vs. making it accessible for all licensed users to edit existing assignments within that license group. The current setup is not optimal for enterprise situations.

  13. Partner Portal - Sales History - get the customer license manager encrypted url

    To provide partners to help customers with license issues, its nice to open the license manager of the customer from the Partner Portal.

    In the Sales History its possible to view the license code of customers. But to see the usage of the license we need to ask the customer to provide us the license manager (encrypted) url to view there license manager.

    Would it be possible to make a button/link in the Sales History so partners can access the License Manager of the customer?

  14. Allow Activations to work on non-persistent VMs

    If you have a non-persistent VM, everytime the image is loaded, the Machine Code changes, making the last activation of the tool useless. having a way to either deactivate the software on VM close or adapting the activation on new load would solve a lot of headaches when using non-persistent VMs

  15. responsiveness

    hello
    i believe i am not the only one who migrate content from home via standard laptop. in that case, some of the crucial options are missing: buttons, links, checkboxes etc.
    means, i need to guess how much TAB should i press to get focus on the required control..
    scroll bars would be nice.. full responsiveness in 2018 - even better.

    please consider

    thanks

  18. Restrict licence management to a specific user

    CJ Owens from inforeliance wishes that he could restrict a seated user's ability to manage (activate/deactivate) the licence's seats for himself and other users. It would be nice if a managing user could be determined.

  19. Customize the access to only certain Sharegate features

    Possibility to provide a user an instance of Sharegate so that they can only run reports and not have access to functionality such as migration.

  20. Add option to save as multiple files when row limit is reached with any Excel export

    When exporting a lot of metadata, some users hit the row limit with Excel and get an error. Some would like for Sharegate to be able to work around that and automatically create multiple files.
