  3. Sync Options in the Migration Tool - Incremental Copy

    For example, if a file has been deleted in the source after it had gotten copied over to SharePoint, can it be deleted in SharePoint?

    The goal is to re-sync only the updates, additions and deletions without the need to copy the whole thing again. It allows to keep on using the source environment while keeping the destination one sync until we're ready to go live with the new site.

    Applies to:
    -users
    -documents (move them to a different location if the user has moved it since the last update)
    -content types
    -columns
    -terms

    Hi everyone,

    Since ShareGate Desktop now allow us to automatically export migration reports (and other reports) when a task is done to a SharePoint library, you may easily setup a Microsoft Flow or workflow to notify you when a task is over. If you need some inspiration, I wrote a blog post on how users can leverage Microsoft Flow to share reports by email: https://sharegate.com/blog/use-microsoft-flow-automatically-send-sharegate-desktop-reports

    It’s not a native way to get notified, but a nice workaround you could use until we add official email notifications (if we do at some point).

    Cheers,

  8. Powershell Automatic Script Based on UI Parameters

    It would be awesome if you had a function in the UI that allowed me to set up a migration, and then generate the corresponding PowerShell (save me the time of figuring how to encode all of my options).

    This is not in our plan as this would be a massive amount of work. We also fear that the results would be supbar compared to an hand-crafted script.

    We understand that PowerShell can be intimidating but our documentation is there to help (and so is our incredible support team).

  9. Email Enabled Librairies Report

    I would like to find all email-enabled libraries and lists in my on premise Sharepoint. How can I do that? I tried creating a new report but did not find the field available to add.

    We understand this need, but seeing as it is fairly trivial to do in SharePoint Management Shell, for the time being we’re concentrating our efforts on more complex scenarios that have no easy alternative.

  10. Empty Folder Report

    Would like to have a report that would list folders and/or document libraries that have been created but are empty. Right now I'm looking at easily finding empty folders.

    This way, we could easily delete them.

  12. Incremental Migration of Error Items Only & Retry

    The idea is to use the migration report to start a new migration of the files that error out only, instead of running a full incremental migration.

    Hello ShareGaters,

    I was going through the comments in this thread and clearly understood your desire of visibility over user alerts (who created them, type of alerts, etc.) but I am curious to hear how the info would be used, how you would consume the info and most importantly, do you also feel the need to take any kind of actions over the alerts?

    I hope I’ll hear from you soon!

    Thank you

  16. Add Email Field in All Reports

    It would be nice if reports could pull emails instead of just names. I know some reports can, but not all.


    • Audit Report

    • Permission Matrix Report

    • Built-In reports

    Email address linked to the user. ID also for pre-build reports

    Google sites as a source is not on our roadmap. Our current focus is Office 365 management and security.

    If you have any other questions, just let me know and I’ll be happy to help.

    Sharegace can now report on (find) and force check-in of checked-out documents, including “never checked-in” documents. We consider it is better practice to clean up prior to a migration, therefore we will not work on further support for migration of checked-out documents.

  19. Use the "And" or "Or" Logic on Filters in Reports

    As it stand, the Reporting feature only supports the "And" logic when adding filters to a report. This is a request to have the option to use the "Or" logic when having multiple filters.

    Our stance still stand on this feature and we still wish to provide it to you guys eventually.

    At this point this is more a question of priority and once we feel like our features to move to the cloud and other environnements are on point, we will get to this.
