    When using the tool over VPN with an unstable connection, it would be good to have an option to keep trying the connection more frequently in the next 30 seconds. In my experience, after getting the Lost Connection error, once I click the retry, the migration continues right away. It is a waste of time waiting for 1 minute or more where after a second the connection is back and stable again for some time. This is specially useful for migrating large amount of files. The time to retry increases as well so would not be really efficient.

  3. Convert Teams Channel to new style Teams Shared Channel

    Teams Shared Channels are the new Microsoft feature for easy cross-tenancy collaboration. Microsoft do not have a tool to convert existing Teams Channels into Shared Channel.

    We have a large number of standard Channels with Guest account members and would ideally want Sharegate to permit the conversation (or copy) of the standard Channel to a Shared Channel, and migrate the Guest accounts to External accounts in the destination.

  5. allow using existing explorer connections to perform copy operations in the desktop app

    In the ShareGate Desktop app we can connect to various sites.

    However, when using the Copy > Copy Content function, there is no way to select one of the sites where we have previously connected.

    So:
    a) we cannot take advange to sites where we are already connected to

    b) we need to place the URL, connect to the site, add the credentials and do these every single time

    I would be a great improvement if we could just pick an authenticated site from the explorer as our source or destination sites

  6. Feature request

    I'd like to be able to get a report of retention policies/tags applied at the site/library/item level. I looked in all the available filters/columns in custom report creator and didn't see anything.

    With Microsoft putting so much effort into expanding their retention technologies in M365, this would be very useful.

  7. On the Scheduled Tasks page have the ability to sort based on Task Name

    All the columns on the Scheduled Task page allow you to sort ascending or descending (Type, Next run, Last run, Recurrence) except for the first main column Task which is the task name. When I'm trying to find a specific task name and there is no search feature, it would be nice to be able to sort on this column.

  8. Trigger Schedule Jobs other than by Time

    I need anything other than time to trigger a scheduled job. It could be a Powershell call, the existence of a file, some event, etc. I have scheduled jobs that I would essentially like to "unschedule" because they are dependent on some external thing to get done first, before they can run. I have to schedule them, because I need to use Browser authentication for SharePoint, which is a pain for managing over 200 jobs if you attempted to do it with Powershell.

  9. Planer migration: do not list all the planer -> enter one planer

    Planer migration: do not list all the planer -> enter only the planer you want to copy.
    We have a very large environment with over 13000 M365 Groups. When you want to copy a planer you have to enter the roor of your tenant and it takes over one hour until you can pick the planer that you want to copy.
    It would be great if you just could enter the planer that you want to copy straight away.

  11. Support powershell 7 in ShareGate

    Usually, I have a mixed environment on-prem + SPO, so I use Powershell 5 for on-prem, and Powershell 7 for SPO with installed pnp modules to do some additional steps. Would be nice if the ShareGate module could work in PowerShell 7+ currently I receive there

    Version 17.1.3 (Assembly 17.1.3.0, Build 2703)

    [0] PS-105-405 (RetryFailed: False) --- Sharegate.Common.Exceptions.SGUnsupportedPowerShellVersionException: ShareGate doesn't support PowerShell version 7.2.5. Please use PowerShell 5.1 instead.

  13. Ignore Required and Unique columns when copying old versions

    If a new column us added to a list, the data filled in, and then made required the old versions of the items in that list will fail to copy. It'd be great if this limitation could be removed.

  14. Copy-Content: add -VersionLimit parameter

    It'd be great if the -VersionLimit parameter could be added to Copy-Content.

    Currently I'm having to use a three step process where I disable versions, copy the content and then re-enable versioning.

  16. Increase Task view performance

    Opening the "Tasks" view is very slow. It takes a long time to load the list of previous tasks. Better performance would be appriciated! ShareGate runs on a server with 4 cores and 12 GB ram so it should have sufficiant resources.

  17. Look and feel

    When I go to do a copy operation, I do appreciate having a pre-filled suggestion for the Task I'm running. In my early days with the tool, I always overwrote that suggested title to something more meaningful, but the more I use it the less time I have to get that fancy. So I'd like to bring your team's attention to the way tasks then show up in the Tasks lists. They ALL start with "Copy ## items" and I have to expand the field wider to see meaningful information. So my proposal would be to change your pre-filled suggestion…

  18. Improve promote site list load time

    Your Subsite promtion tool is useless with large tenants. We have 20k sites and I cannot easily pull up a site to do a subsite promotion on.

  19. Private Channels Site Permissions

    It would be great if when I was given access to the SharePoint sites I was also given access to all of the sites that are private channels to reduce the use of PowerShell or SharePoint Admin Center just to have access.
