  1. Ability to export Manage Activations page report as CSV

    We have 100+ Sharegate licenses that we provide to departments in our organization with fee. It is very hard to build reports and review based on current activations. We would like to request a feature to be able to export these activations into CSV file.

  4. 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).

  7. Add "Copy From" and "Copy To" in the Copy screen

    As one of innumerable admins who work long and fluctuating hours, and who still perform some migrations through the GUI, it would be super awesome if there were a visual indicator of source and destination sites in the migration interface. Even better, a "Copy From" and "Copy To" heading over each column. When you're preparing to merge a large site collection into a blank target site at 2 in the morning, it would be very reassuring to know beyond a shadow of doubt that I'm not erasing one of the company's primary knowledge portals. The URLs can be very similar…

  8. Setting to prevent Sharegate from crawling your environments in Explorer

    It’d be nice to have a setting added in a future release that would allow for the passive operations to be disabled. That way we would only be prompted to logon to site collections for actions we deliberately initiated. Outside of the issue that we are experiencing, I can definitely think of a number of use cases where this type of setting would be desirable (e.g. compliance/organizational policy, low bandwidth, etc).

  9. Report on which sites have external users with a Yes/No column or filter

    see which sites are externally shared and which ones are not (without filtering by user type). Maybe an ability to include another column that says “externally shared” with a yes or no.

  11. Adapt to my small laptop screen

    ShareGate on my corporate issued laptop is almost unusable due to how large the UI elements have scaled. Please consider an adaptable UI that adapts to the size and resolution of users who must do some work from a laptop.
    Version: ShareGate 12.2.1

  17. Primary key

    We need to be able to use the internal SP ID as a primary key. How can we do this. When doing a delta migration this is important. The time stamp does not always work and ID is by far the best solution. Is there a work around??? this is maddening. thanks!

  18. Site Downloads and Recycle bin

    Site downloads really should include Recycle bin files. I'm not looking to migrate, delete, or restore content, but we should be able to export the entire site as-is including a folder of deleted items. We had legal use case where this was needed and your product did not support it.
