  1. Feature request

    When scheduling a Task, id did not find a way to rename the scheduled Task so that i can easily identify what the task is for. If you have several Admins and several Tasks this can be confusing.

    Please add the feature to rename or give a scheduled Task a Title or Description.

    Cheers, Stephan

  2. Apply template / design theme (when promote) to Modern Sites

    I use Sharegate to migrate my classic (sub) sites to the modern site (collections). It would be great if we could apply theming / design to the moderns sites by selecting options that creates and runs a script in the background. Because we don't like to script this ourselves ;-)
    It will set the logo / colors / default theme etc and creates a modern home page. So all modern sites look consistent. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-US/sharepoint/dev/declarative-customization/site-design-overview?branch=sitedesign

  3. Archiving of Tasks

    Having the ability to archive completed tasks rather than going through and exporting then deleting the tasks (which is time consuming)

  4. Be able to leverage PowerShell to Filter and Delete completed Tasks

    Loading and deleting completed tasks in the UI can take a long time depending on the amount and size of the task list, being able to run this operation in PowerShell would be useful

  5. Keep selection when resuming session

    Hello, the option to go back to a completed/historical task is a great option. However, I find that when I select "Return to this Session" my selctions (ie I only want to copy certain files or sites) in the "copy from" window are dropped which greatly decreases the usefulness of this option. Can I please request that a feature is added whereby selections are saved with the task? Thanks, Mike.

  6. Bulk connect site collections

    I find myself today having to add over 100 site collections via 'add connection' option - it would be great of we could bulk upload a listing of all site collections - or better yet, add all the site collections under a web app all in one fell swoop.

  7. Improve support of browser authentication

    There needs to be improvements around authentication in certain scenarios. We have a large Microsoft 365 tenant with over 100k users. Due to this, administration and support for SharePoint is provided at the agency level (the highest level of organizational division within the entity). So our specific use case is: 1) are not tenant administrators, 2) the tenant administrators will provide no support to us, 3) we use browser-based authentication. So what ends up happening in our case is that every time we open ShareGate we are forced to either log on or cancel individually for every one of our…

  9. 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.

  10. Folder Mapping for more automation

    Automatically map Folder "My Files" on a Fileshare to Folder "Documents" in OD4B, so that everything in that Folder is always being copied to Documents in the users onedrive. Same with videos, music, pictures.

    You can easily automate and move more quickly to OD4B.

  16. Migrate SharePoint 2010 workflows to SharePoint 2013 engine or Flow

    Microsoft is disabling SP2010 workflows on Nov 1st in SharePoint Online. It would be extremely valuable if ShareGate could be enhanced to allow migration/conversion of SP2010 workflows in SharePoint Online to either the 2013 workflow engine or Microsoft Flow to assist customers who have a large base of workflows to get converted in such a short timeframe.

  18. Set a Default for Mapping Unresolved User and Groups

    To be able to default mapping of Unresolved users.
    For every migration I set in the mappings screen that Unresolved user and groups should be system account. If not it pulls my name into the modified by or create by field. It would be great to set a default, so I don't have to go in and set it for every migration. I do see that I can export a list and re-import it for another migration, but for just the Unresolved users that process is longer then searching for the account I want to use.

  19. Being able to revist a Export metadata session.

    I've setup a export to spreadsheet with field mappings etc, then run a test export of a small number of records. Thinking I'd be able to revist the session as you can with migration.. it appears not!
    This would be very useful...

    Cheers
    Russ

  20. 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.
