  1. Copy metadata from a library to a list

    Very disappointed this is not possible, I now have to write a custom script to do this very straightforward operation.

    Hi, Task forms are not being copied with Nintex workflows. Big issues when there are many tasks and when we're going from DEV to PROD.

  6. Suggestion for the Promote feature

    I was unable to use the Promote feature for my project. I wanted to promote 300+ subsites.


    1. All subsites were in one site collection. A feature in the UI to bulk select them is missing.


    2. I had to change the url per site because they contained spaces, and the url is reused as Alias by ShareGate. It does not resolve the problem automatically. Also the UI does not support changing settings for all selected subsites.


    3. I created a PowerShell script to automatically create a vallid url from the original url. But when using Promote from PowerShell in a for-loop, the…

  7. Copy if different as a Copy Option

    Add an option to be able to copy all items that are different between the Source and Destination. Currently, only the incremental copy exists which will copy items that are newer at the Source. The request here is to be able to copy any items that aren't the same between the source and the destination, not only more recent

  11. To be able to select to report objects that have no permissions after a migration

    After a migration - upgrade and rewrite - we have found some folders with no permissions "This object has no permissions" in the PMR. These are where users and or groups do not exist in the new system. With no time to go back and remigrate and no easy way to map these permissions anyway we are running reports on all areas and picking out these lines in the exported spreadsheet, then can update the permissions using a system administrator account. With more migrations to come we would like to be able to report direct.

  13. Preserve the modern home.aspx page when migrating to a new modern site

    I'm having trouble migrating to Modern Sites. I have nearly 1000 site collections/subsite in a SharePoint 2016 farm that I'm migrating to SharePoint Online. However, we're wanting to keep the modern look and feel. No matter what mapping settings and options I try, I cannot accomplish this. The end result is a SharePoint Online site collection that is using the STS#3 template, but looks like SharePoint 2016. The issue appears to take place at the end of the copy content operation when the home.aspx file is copied over to the Site Pages library. Is there any way to change this…

  14. Adding relative dates to Report and Scheduling

    Is it possible to use relative dates in custom reports (and scheduled reports? I only seem to be able to enter a fixed date

    For example what I'd like to do is run an automated report on the 1st of every month which shows List items with a created date in the past month.

  16. Leverage the unified security report for SPO Auditing

    Is there a replacement report that will produce the same results as the audit report used to for O365. I used to rely on that report heavily when sudden changes were made to track down who did it. Thanks.

  19. expand all 'view' buttons in the PMR

    "When we run a permissions matrix report, any inherited permissions usually show up like the image below. Is there a way to automatically ‘view’ these without having to go through possibly hundreds and manually clicking ‘view’ to expand these. With larger items, it makes it difficult to understand the export when you have to find the list library, see that it shows it’s inherited, and then scroll back up to the parent (which you could get wrong) to see what the permissions are for the item you first looked at. I’m looking for something similar to the ‘expand all groups’…
