    Hello from Sharegate! We released Sharegate 7.1 last week and we are happy to let you know that you can now perform a Copy Structure to Office 365 and force the new experience on lists.

    Additionally, here is the list of supported Web Parts for the New Experience https://support.share-gate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004220574

    And as a complement, you can now create a new report on Lists and Libraries (Office 365 of course) with “List Experience” filter and column. From there, you can edit the “List Experience” in the properties displayed in the Quick Actions panel (in the report or directly in the explorer). The “List Experience” can be set to “Tenant default”, “New experience” or “Classic experience”.

    My friend Alexandra explains it all in detail with this blog article https://en.share-gate.com/blog/modern-experience-web-apps-and-navigation-improvement
    We hope you enjoy these new functionalities!

  3. Support Office 365 Labels During Migrations

    In a migration from on-premises to Office 365, we need to convert a records management functionality that handles document retention to date in Office 365 labels.

    With today’s release of ShareGate Desktop, Retention labels will be kept during the migration, ONLY for migrations on the same tenant. This should allow you to move elements around in your environments and ensure that they don’t lose information along the way.

    If you have any other suggestion, don’t hesitate to contact us.

    For the full content of the release, please see: https://support-desktop.sharegate.com/hc/en-us/articles/360025997452

  5. Add the Document Version information to the document reports

    Please add the document library column "version" that stores the value of the most current document version to the document reporting. Thanks! I love you guys!

    Pow! It's Done.  ·  LP Lavoie responded

    You can build reports on:
    – Version- and approval-related settings in Lists and libraries (enabled or not, major/minor limits, require checkout, approval setting)
    – Version number for items and documents

    Hopefully this now covers all needs!

    All special characters should now be properly handled in Sharegate.

    Note: Know that different platforms (2013, 2016, O365, file share, Google Drive, Box) support different special characters, so you’ll still have replacements in some cases.

  7. Bring back the web application level selection in the Explorer

    Can’t I just pick one web application and Sharegate would know about all the site collections in that web application? I seem to remember this was possible in the older Sharegate 5+ series.

    We heard you were looking for your web apps… look no further. We listened to your feedback and brought them back to the Explorer!

    Thanks for you for helping to build a better product everyday!

  8. Edit Existing Scheduled Tasks

    It's great that you have made the option for Scheduling available, it's really useful but what happens if you made an error and you want to change something, you would need to delete the already made schedule and create a new one. The same would happen if you created a new site collection that you need to report on.

    How about, the option to restart the same Task in the history, I want the same report that I ran a month ago, but I do not need it scheduled, this way I could.

    With today’s release of ShareGate Desktop, you can now edit the parameters of your scheduled tasks. This should make you life easier and circumvent the need to delete and recreate a schedule from scratch.

    If you have any feedback about this or anything else in the application, don’t hesitate to contact us again.

    To know everything included in this new release, please see: https://support-desktop.sharegate.com/hc/en-us/articles/360025997452

  9. Add URL object in Explorer - Sort by URL

    In explorer view, It would be nice when looking at all the site collections in a web application, if I could sort by URL instead of the name of the site collection.

  10. Delete items from selected items in a result report

    I would like to be able to create a report in Sharegate, and then be able to select items in the report (either sites or lists/libraries) and delete them from the corresponding SharePoint farm.

    Good evening,

    Sharegate 5.17 is now available!! We now support files up to 10GB in size when you are migrating to SharePoint 2016 or Office 365 (can only be done in normal mode).

    Thanks a lot for helping us getting better!

  12. Automatically expand the groups in the Permission Matrix Report

    -Currently, you need to expand the groups as a second operation after the Permission Matrix Report is completed. In some cases, it takes as long as the report itself. I'd like the ability to toggle it by default when running the operation.

    -Have the ability to auto-expand the groups in the permission matrix report before the export is done or have a button to Export and Expand the groups in the report.

    With today’s release, we added the ability to download only some files in a document library.

    This can be done either directly from the explorer or with the results of a report on documents (which will allow you to filter for desired documents).

    Hope you enjoy that new feature.

    Don’t hesitate to give us feedback, we always appreciate it!

  14. Office 365 groups report

    It would be wonderful to have a report that would report against Office 365 groups. I'm particularly looking for one that would report on all groups that were created as "Public" and who created the group.

    It is now possible to report on O365 Groups, with filters and report columns for properties specific Groups such as Private/Public, owners, members, etc.

    We’re moving forward with more O365 Groups support in management and migration, look for it in upcoming releases.

  15. Export SharePoint Inventory details

    One more thing: as in most every place in Sharegate, we should be able to export the SharePoint inventory details in some form :-)

    Hello,

    You can now export All Errors and Warnings from the SharePoint Inventory. Please update to Sharegate 5.13.2.
    http://help.share-gate.com/article/1795-release-notes-5-13-2

    You can now see where are the errors and warnings, and correct them before a migration!

    We’re currently planning the View details Report. https://sharegate.uservoice.com/forums/373710-general/suggestions/15667236-sharepoint-inventory-report-details
    From this details we’ll update the export excel to allow you to see the whole inventory.

    Thanks a lot for your feedback!

  16. Export more than 50 tasks at a time - Number of results per page

    I really miss the option in the "All tasks" (previous reports) to select more than 50 items. I'm doing migrations up to 700 sites which makes copy/pasting 14 different reports into 1 Excel file a lot of efforot. Is there a way to export all tasks or more than 50 to 1 Excel?

    Greetings from Sharegate!
    At the beginning of April, we released Sharegate 7.4 that contains the functionality to display more than 50 items in All Tasks. It is now possible to display 50, 100, 200 and 500 items per page. We hope it is answering your needs! Please leave us your feedback!

  17. Clean Orphaned Users directly from the report

    Please put in an option to "clean orphaned users" in the report, as I was in the Reporting option and it only gave me a read only option. I was confused as I wanted to clean and go through the orphaned users, but that is in explorer. Thank you!

    There were some remaining issues on Microsoft’s side with long URLs (up to 400 chars) when using the migration API (Insane mode). They were finally fixed recently and we’ll be updating Sharegate in the next release (Sept. 5) to fully support all migration paths for long URLs up to 400 characters.

    Side note : Files above 2GB still cannot go through Insane mode. Again, this is a limitation in Office 365 and not in Sharegate. We’ll support it as soon as a fix is available.

    Great news from Sharegate!

    Today we released Sharegate 8.0! The Connect-Site command will display an error message if the URL is invalid and will no longer try to fallback.

    Don’t forget to leave us your feedback!
    Enjoy!

    We’ve just release Sharegate 5.15 where you will find Inventory details CSV and Excel export for SharePoint, O365 and FileShare.

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