  1. Ability to delete logs based on age of logs

    Please have something that will clean up old logs. Either a delete older than this date. Or based on size. Doing file share migrations generates a lot of logs.

  2. Run Sharegate as a Service

    The ability to run ShareGate Desktop to run as a service for Automation of reports?

    This would be really handy, as machines need to be rebooted regularly for updates, and having to log in to relaunch the app is counter productive.

  3. Automatic export into a list

    Automatic export works like a charm. Would it be possible to add the ability to have that feed into a list directly rather than an excel file?

    Thanks

  4. Automatic export - Date formating

    For Automatic export of report results, it would be nice if we had more options for the formatting of date/time. Would it be possible for us to type our own format string? (ex. yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm or yyMMdd)

  5. Ability to rename a PMR and other reports

    Hi
    When creating a scheduled task like "Permissions Matrix Report" it does not allow you to name it, it only indicates the name of the site and this may coincide with other reports. It is very difficult to identify them
    Thank you

  8. Ability to export scheduled jobs as a powershell script

    It would be nice to have an option that took a copy job and/or scheduled task and exported the job as a powershell script, or something to the way SSMS allows you to Create as...

  9. Changes to the Tasks screen

    Improve response time for your completed tasks. It can take MANY MINUTES For it to load. I delete teh sharegate desktp uses .... on disk, yet having 500MB is a bit, yet I can't keep deleting them over and over. Maybe allow me to save a few days or so. Can you cache the completed or happening tasks within the past few days. 99% of the time I want to know what I am working on TODAY or yesterday! Maybe reduce the items per page to like 5 or so instead of 50.

  10. Cache filters of the All tasks screen

    When I hit the back button PLEASE cache the filters for "your completed tasks" as it takes AGES To load. PLease, I clicked on the incorrect option and it is as if I started a new check.

  11. report on the completed tasks

    For example, I want to export to Excel or something all the tasks I have completed in the Sharegate tool. Not export the actions themselves. I'm looking for a report of what I have done.

  12. Define task name in Options

    The ability to rename existing tasks is a good thing. It would be much better if naming a task could be done proactively in the UI. I believe this can be done in PowerShell. However, since come tasks cannot be started via PowerShell (e.g. Permission Matrix Reports), this ability is limited.

    Being able to set a Task Name before starting a job, via the UI, would make it possible to organize tasks instead of having to manually open each task to determine what it was for prior to renaming it (see attached).

  14. Include SPOManagementShell authentication in Connect-Site as Browser authentication

    Include SPOManagementShell authentication in Connect-Site .Since Browser authentication does not work with Task scheduler when Run whether user is logged on or not is selected in Scheduler.

  16. For Copy Structure jobs, allow "Source List Name" as an available column in Tasks

    Currently it only shows the source site. Determining the source list(s) used requires opening each Task manually.

  17. Report Request: Migration Activities

    I would like to generate a report on actions in my task list using the details on the ShareGate Desktop Tasks page and use the high-level information for things like progress and status reports. I do not see an option in my app. If it does not exist, please consider creating one and/or the option to make one in the custom report’s options. If it does exist, please send a link that I can reference.

  19. Scheduled Tasks - be able to 'select all' or export for reference

    It would be fantastic if you'd allow for the selection of all items (drag to highlight) or export of the scheduled task list for informational purposes. We've had to delete our AppData a few times, and now have to reinstall, and it would be great if we could save the scheduled tasks as a reference for rebuilding.

    Thanks!

  20. Clean Orphaned User Enhancement # 6

    Here is a feature/enhancement that would be very beneficial to our very large/complex company:

    The ability to change the tasks view to show URL as opposed to the Site Name/Title - for example "Orphaned User Account on http://example.com/sites/example" instead of site title for reference purposes.

    Because when you have 300,000 site collections the site name/title are not descriptive enough to find again in the Tasks list.
