  4. Ability to Schedule an Inventory Report

    I don’t see a “Schedule” button next to “Run” button, like I see with all of the other report sections.

  5. SharePoint and Fileshare Inventory Drill Down

    It would be neat if you could take the SharePoint inventory report and drill down into the individual stats :


    • Expand workflows since they do not show up in the errors that you can export

    • Be able to click on a summary like unused sites and see a list of all the unused sites

    • Expand checked out files, custom master pages, unsupported templates

    • Sort site collections by size, number of sites, workflows, etc.

  6. Additional columns to Source Analaysis

    I’m just starting my next migration project – based on SharePoint Analysis, ShareGate is providing. May I ask for a few more columns in this report? I’d need those additional columns:

    Owner(s) – People Names – Access Level

    Owner Group – Group Name – Access Level

    Access Request Mail – Address(es)

    Created – Date, when Site has been created

    I can see all this information in ShareGate Explorer, but unfortunately it does not find it’s way to the Analysis Report. I think it might help much more others as well – and columns not needed, are simply hided, but to…

  7. Detect System files and Hidden files pre-migration

    I would also like to use the chance to request that you submit feedback to your team for a “wish” so your team consideres updating the documentation to indicate what files are skipped from attempting to copy and will not be in the final report, incorporating a better explanation of “skipped” in the “filter by status” on the results page and also add “not considered for copying” (or similar wording) to allow a user to see which files were not even attempted for copy from the source.

  8. Site/Collection structure report

    Report that can show you the listed site assets for an entire subsite or collection.

    Basically, it would be like looking at the site contents for any selected targets. This would help people flatten there footprints, or consolidate material that's similar between sites. This would help with migration planning, unused content cleanup and help eliminate user created subs that have no content or activity.

  9. Include modified date in source analysis

    Please could you include the file modified date as a field in the inventory report (now source analysis).

    This would be extremely helpful in cases where you are planning to migrate content within a certain timeframe (e.g. last 6 months). I understand this feature is available in the actual migration but it would be useful in the report to gain a better understanding of the size of the data set.

    Thanks,

  10. File Share Source Analysis - Better control over bigger environments

    It would be great to have a way to run a summary of network data analyzed. Our environment is large and we are possibly dealing with over ~90TB of network data. The ability to generate summary reports under planning section would add great value to our purpose. We want to know how much data we are dealing with prior actual start of planned migration.

    Ability to run summary network data discovery – Summary file Share analysis
    a) User name

    b) total network data ( GB )

    c) Number of file

    d) Mapped network data path

    Ability to run same reports…

  11. Add migrate now button to source analysis page

    When running a pre-migration Source Analysis, I end up on a page that shows the results. It could be slightly more efficient to have a button "Migrate Now" that would take you into the migration flow with the analyzed source already preselected as a source for the migration

  12. Report on Customization of built-in content types

    Customization of built-in content types. I’ve seen this at a couple of clients. It would be great if this could be identified in advance during the analysis. Depending on the scenario, I address this by pushing the customizations out to the inheriting custom content types, or by creating an intermediate content type and changing the custom content type inheritance.

  14. Library analysis

    my use-case was the desire to just export a spreadsheet of all folders and files within the document library, and Source Analysis appeared to be the way to do that. If I analyse the entire Site Collection and export that as a spreadsheet, I will then need to filter out all irrelevant sites, pages, libraries, folders, files. Perhaps a Library Analysis could be added as an option?

  15. Add an Office 365 Groups Filter in the Inventory

    Add a filter option to select O365 groups vs site collections in the Inventory. Just like in the Explorer.

  18. Add new rules to migration pre-check

    hello. i'm currenlty responsible for migrating over 460 sites from 2010 to 2013. I run a precheck to make sure that the migrartion is ready to go and yet when i migrate, i end up with all kinds of errors.
    It would be nice to know errors such as document names being too long, permissions not lining up to name a few errors that I've received even after running a precheck.

  19. Evaluate saved values against choice column options

    Copy content - Run pre-check - Would it be possible for it to deep scan values in items versus available options in choice columns? That way I can determine ahead of time which items are going to fail.

  20. Plan Option

    Plan option should have filter option to identify the actual files, their size and approx time for migration. This will be easier to generate the in-scope files and folders.
