  1. Change user/group permission in one step

    Hi, permissions work great for adding new or removing existing but editing requires 2 steps, one to add and one to delete. An Edit option would be real nice. Even better if I dont have to find and select the groups that are already listed.

  15. Multi-user selection in the search section for features "add/remove/copy permissions"

    Remove all users in a site collection without going to each sub-site and removing them from security groups.

    I have over 700 users that need to be removed in multiple sub-sites and various security groups. It would take me forever to remove them if I have to add their names individually.

    Being able to select many users at a time in the search section for features like “remove permissions”. For now you have to search for one user, add it, search for another one, add it, etc.

  16. Web Part Report

    It would be very useful to undergo a report for Webparts within a site collection.

    Checking which webparts are open and in use within a site collection if important for migrating accross platforms. This type of report would be VERY useful for SharePoint teams as it would highlight sites which need attention from the developers (if a webpart is custom for example) to ensure they dont break.

    Please can this be added?

  17. Progress Indicator of Pre-check & Migration

    Display more details while operation is running and as summary on completion:
    - Elapsed time
    - Breakdown by sites, lists/librairies, files, items instead of just "items" and "objects" count
    - Possibility to drill down progress breakdown by site, by list
    - Size of processed data (+ total if possible)
    - Inbound / Outbound network speeds
    - Remaining time (if possible)
    - Time / size of Azure upload jobs
    - etc.

    For Migrations in PowerShell, add -vebose like cmdlet to allow users to see the progress of the migration instead of waiting for the migration to finish/script execution to end.

    Declined  ·  LP Lavoie responded

    This is a limitation on Microsoft’s (SharePoint API) side. Given that Audiences has seen no improvement in several years, it is doubtful they will every add support for Audience manipulation on classic webparts.

    If an Audience feature is added on Modern (SPFx) Webparts in the future, we will support it.

  20. Compare Two Environments

    Quickly compare source and destination content in order to see what needs to be incrementally migrated and to prove to customers that every item from the source made it to destination.

    To be compared:
    -items
    -site settings
    -site features
    -lists and libraries
