  2. Better search/filter options for reports select targets

    I work in a tenant with 7,000+ site collections. I need to run reports on sites that match "sites/abc" for example. Using the search does NOT display all relevant site collections. It is extremely frustrating and next to impossible to manually scroll through this list to select the collections i need. let me search, check some boxes, then search again without losing what's selected. Also, expand powershell to be able to run reports against a csv of site collection urls, that would be immensely helpful for scheduling reports. thanks!

  3. Merge teams - Copy content and conversations from one team to another

    My organisation has one very large tenant and a small test environment we hardly ever use. Will it eventually be possible to copy the contents of a team to another one in the same tenant?

  5. Create document sets on the fly

    "We are looking to move documents from one library to another, where document sets will be introduced along the documents to be moved, but where the document sets have no corresponding item in the source (ie no folder or existing document set). Is this possible to achieve with SG?"

  7. Need to create a report using the following.

    We are switching from using Content types to using labels for retention. I need to identify where under a document library the setting of Apply label to items in this list or library and the checkbox is unchecked for Apply label to existing items in the library. Thanks This is how Microsoft is doing teams retention so we are planning on switching SharePoint to do the same.

  9. Support for migration of Quick Parts, Headers and footers.

    I am currently facing the issue of no support for MS Word Quick Parts and also not updating headers and footers within documents.

    As far as i am aware there is no PowerShell to correct this. I think this would be a beneficial new feature within sharegate as QuickParts are now none functioning when copied from environments like sharepoint 2010, same issue with headers and footers.

  10. Site Report - Site Size Only Column

    Site Report to offer an additional Column to present just the standalone Site Size (excluding nested Subsites).

    This would greatly assist to quickly and accurately determine a target Site / Subsite only size in very large nested Site scenarios to help support content restructuring (promote to site collection etc...) and / or migration decision activities.

  12. Display number of items copy structure - lists and libraries

    Suggestion - add the number of items in brackets or as anothe column on the Copy structure > Lists and libraries for the source and destination panes. E.g. Documents (6 items).
    This would be useful for migrations where you only copy used lists - copying empty libraries or lists over is of no value. I am aware there are other ways of viewing number of items, but would be good to know this information at a glance. Cheers!

  19. Mass-configure/run permission reports across all sites

    I have two very common use-cases for my proposed idea. I'll first give the two examples;

    Example 1: We hold "Site Owners" as being responsible for ensuring their permissions are up to date. We like to enforce permission audits once-quarterly.

    Example 2: We acquired a competitor and are migrating their SharePoint environment into ours. It would be nice to provide all their Site Owners (typically 50+ individuals) with a permissions matrix that is relevant to them without having to manually manipulate, or rely on them to filter/sort a master permissions report.

    The proposed feature: Please consider adding checkbox/radio button option…
