  1. Missing users should not prevent file copies during promote operation

    When promoting a subsite, there aren't many options to deal with potential errors, like missing users. My experience is if there are missing users, ShareGate does not copy list items but instead, throws errors. A list with over 1600 items only copied 333 because of missing users.

    There should be more options available, similar to copying a site or list, when promoting sites.

  2. Download all versions of files

    I'd like to be able to download (archive) all version history for files in a library with the option to only download metadata and not the files themselves. We need to retain all the change info stored in version history but only need the latest published version of the file itself.
    Thanks.

  5. 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.

  7. Export report result to sharepoint list

    Hello,

    we run regularly a Site Index Report, listing all site collections and their owners (and additional information). The report should be used by all users to let them identify who to contact when they require access to a site (and the access request is not turned on).
    However, an Excel list is not really user friendly and we would love to see that report being delivered into a SharePoint list directly, so I wonder if there is a way you can make it possible instead of reporting into an Excel to report into a SharePoint list and update that…

  8. Support for incremental Teams copy via PowerShell

    Is it possible to add incremental support to the Copy-Team cmdlet in ShareGate PowerShell. The initial copy is supported, allowing bulk migrations using e.g. CSV-input, but performing incremental migrations currently requires the UI where each incremental needs to be started separately.

  14. Option to disable migrating users as Members and Owners of M365 Groups

    During a site collection merge operation into the site collection of a M365 Group, ShareGate Desktop will grab the members of the source SP Group "Members" and promote them to "Members" of the M365 Group. There should be an opt-out feature that a user can uncheck if they don't want this to happen

  15. Notify users when migrating important structural items, such as homepage

    Please notify us when a migration will overwrite important structural items.
    In example, I have created a new homepage in my destination prior to my migration projet and the new homepage was overwritten by the old one from my source site. Thanks

  18. Automatically split migration between multiple instances of ShareGate Desktop

    As we perform more tenant migration work I would like to see a 'Master - Drone' capability in multi license environments. For example, instead of manually dividing a list of Teams or OneDrive sites into multiple batches, I would like to be able to give a Master node the list of all sites, or even the ability to 'Select All' from the GUI and instruct the Master to divvy up the work to one of X drone installations. This would provide a tenfold increase in migration setup productivity as well as the potential to more effectively balance the workload than…

  19. Allow for a Staging option for Teams copy.

    Allow for a Staging option for Teams copy.

    Staging would create the Team, M365 Group, SharePoint site, create permissions groups, etc. but wouldn't populate any content, members/owners, messages, etc.
    This would allow for a faster migration time by allowing the Teams structure to be created separate of the content migration.

    Of course you would also need to have the ability to do a 2nd portion of the migration separate from the staging portion. (as of 15.0.1 this could be the incremental copy for Teams.)
