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:
-lists and libraries250 votes
This is not currently in our plan to allow our users to compare two environments.
We might do it in the future, possibly starting with permission as it seems like it would be the most useful part on security level.
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.
-documents (move them to a different location if the user has moved it since the last update)
As much as we hear your need, this is not currently on our road map. We will revisit it eventually.
Be able to run and schedule reports using PowerShell.170 votes
Since the ability to schedule reports has been included for a while now and with the upcoming feature to automatically export reports into a SP library (see: https://feedback.sharegate.com/forums/912880/suggestions/17768698), I was wondering if this suggestion will still be needed?
What are your thoughts on this?
-show number of views to a site, or a document.
-show number of visits and of unique visitors.
-show trending content.
-show number of other audited events.
-show most active users.
-Run it on the entire farm and show stats by sites.
The goal is to monitor internally the user's experience with SharePoint.160 votes
[Admin note: Merged all suggestion related to more complex filtering during Migration or Import]
- Filter on full file names instead of just exensions.
- Filter with wildcards
- Include / Exclude folder by name using the custom templates
- Exclude specific (sub) folders based on names
- Timestamp/range filters - last modified date and created date
- List or site template filters
- Filter by property (name, type, etc.)
- Filter by size
- Filter empty objects (sites, libraries, folders, ...)
- Exclude specific type of objects (Microfeed...)
We feel like our migration experience is quite good right now and we don’t plan on doing custom rules and filters for now.
Some of those can already be done using PowerShell, SharePoint views and other means.
We will eventually reevaluate this once we advance further in our roadmap.
Having to remember to keep the selection, verify the copy & then delete stuff when you're moving thousands of files around is really hard & painful when you make a mistake. It would be great if you guys had a move option that took care of all of that133 votes
I am glad to say that we are currently exploring the possibility to add an option to automatically make Read-only and/or Delete the source of migration if it goes errorless.
We’ll keep you updated with any news on this.
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.125 votes
As much as we really like this idea, it doesn’t fit in the current narrative of ShareGate Desktop.
We will for sure reevaluate this one in a near future.
Report on the metadata columns used inside lists and libraries.125 votes
Since we want to be transparent regarding our roadmap, I just wanted to do a quick update to say that even though we are not declining this idea, we are not planning on adding metadata reporting in the near future. We’ll keep you informed if and when we start working on it.
- Find all workflows that are running or in-progress
- See the name of the workflows
- Run report on workflows, out of the box, SP designer, Nintext, 3rd party
- Be able to create a report that will list the status of the workflows
- Report on workflows published by a specific user
- Report on how many workflow tasks are assigned to a particular user
We’ve release a version of Workflow reporting a few months ago and are trying to figure out where we are going with this.
Please tell us what you would like us to add to this feature.
- run reports on managed metadata
- Term/Termset usage report
- create a report which can tell us which documents do not have metadata attached to it
To have the ability to migration video files when Microsoft Stream replaces Office 365 Video Portal65 votes
We understand the need for this and are evaluating the possibility of doing it.
Preserve List Items ID's65 votes
Lately we decided to shift most of our energy towards migrating, managing and adopting Office 365. When we create new features, we make sure they also work with SharePoint on-premise (if possible), but we are not planning on developing more options of features specifically for on-premise at the moment.
I’ll keep the suggestion open and our ears are still open to new comments.
Pull reports on duplicated files or documents. Clean them after.65 votes
This is not in our short or medium plan. We understand the need but don’t feel like it’s our priority right now as we focus on the adoption of the modern workplace.
During a migration, have the ability to convert Site Pages and their classic Web Parts to their Modern version (when it exists).
- If a Classic Web Part does not exist as Modern, it should not be converted.
- Custom Web Parts should be ignored.
After a review of our roadmap, this suggestion is not a high priority at the moment.
With all the improvements that were done to the SharePoint PnP Modernization framework (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/transform/modernize-userinterface-site-pages) over the last year, we feel like this is a solid alternative right now to convert classic pages to modern ones so we decided to put our efforts in adding more migration capabilities (Teams migration coming soon) to our tool instead.
We’ll keep the suggestion open and will monitor the comments and feedback and will review it in the future.

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).

Can we move list with PowerApps Customized form to another site using ShareGate? Currently it is not possible in PowerApps to tag along its customized form once its list is moved.62 votes
Add the possibility to add permissions at the item level with the reporting tool.
We are currently reconsidering this suggestion and are wondering if it is still a need for you, especially if you are an Office 365 user.
Let us know and we will reevaluate this eventually.

- To avoid disk full on C:
- For backup purposes

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.57 votes
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.
