  2. Run Sharegate as a Service

    The ability to run ShareGate Desktop to run as a service for Automation of reports?

    This would be really handy, as machines need to be rebooted regularly for updates, and having to log in to relaunch the app is counter productive.

  3. Automatic export into a list

    Automatic export works like a charm. Would it be possible to add the ability to have that feed into a list directly rather than an excel file?

    Thanks

  4. Destination checker

    Hello,

    when going to the options page for a "Copy Structure" and when giving an URL where the copy should be made to, SG Desktop should check whether the URL already exsists and give just a warning message maybe that the content will be overwritten. When the URL does not exsist SGD could say that a new SP Site will be created.

    Many thanks for considering

    Cheers
    Joerg

  5. Add a couple of reports for files

    Would be nice to have a couple reporting options in ShareGate Desktop for file counts primarily in lists. I had a reporting request to have a file count and space consumption of files in both Document Libraries and List attachments.

    It would be nice to have a report with a couple sample fields.
    Site, List/DocumentLibrary, File count, File size, Url

    A second report idea

    Currently ShareGate Desktop does have a report for document libraries that will give file size of each file; however, similar reporting isn't available for lists. It appears there is an existing query for list items: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/53188.sharepoint-online-get-all-list-attachments-using-powershell-and-csom.aspx

  6. Automatic export - Date formating

    For Automatic export of report results, it would be nice if we had more options for the formatting of date/time. Would it be possible for us to type our own format string? (ex. yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm or yyMMdd)

  12. Collapse navigation side bar

    Will be cool if the left menu has option to hide or reduce to small icon in order to reduce space in the screen taken by the left menu

  14. Provide an option to use checkboxes to identify content

    Wherever there's an option to individually select content to migrate, provide an option to use checkboxes to identify content. Using shift click can be very cumbersome and when migrating volumes of content, accidentally not keeping the shift key pressed will unselect everything resulting in lost work because you have to reselect the files again.

  16. Report to list all columns used in a list/library

    I would love a report that showed all the columns used in a list/library with their column type, description, if required, allows multiple values, and if a lookup, the list that is used in that lookup.

    Thank you

  17. Make the PMR clearer

    In the Permissions Matrix Report, when expanding a group(s) to view details, the contents of the group(s) are displayed below the list. If several groups are expanded, it is not clear who is in which group.

  18. Add version comments when doing a bulk edit import

    I often update metadata using bulk edit content and exporting and importing metatdata.
    It'd be nice to import version comments with the updated metadata to save having to increment the doc versions again to add the comments.

  19. Display which template has been chosen on the "Import from file share" screen

    Please add an options summary for which Template has been selected, on the migration "Import from file share" pre-migration page.

    This will allow a quick way to see which template has been selected on the "Import from file share" page, without having to open the "Options" screen.
