    Pow! It's Done.  ·  Nathalie responded

    Good evening!

    Thanks for using Sharegate!

    You can now delete SharePoint objects directly from the Explorer. Depending on the object type it might move to the (or one of) recycle bin or delete permanently!

    Have a nice day!

  2. See the workflow type in reports (SP 2010 / 2013 / Nintex)

    Just curious if there is a way to check if a workflow is a SharePoint 2010 Workflow or a SharePoint 2013 Workflow and allow for sorting / filtering.

    We’ve just release Sharegate 5.15 where you will find Inventory details for SharePoint and O365.

    You can find inside the inventory of SharePoint 2010 /2013 / Nintex workflows and if they are Reusable, Site or list workflow!

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

  4. Fix date jump when editing scheduled migration

    A couple of times now I've scheduled a migration to run later the same day. Then I decide I need to change the start time only, not the date. If I I go to the Scheduled tab, edit the schedule for the migration, the date automatically changes to the following day as soon as the schedule window opens. This has screwed me at least a couple of times because I didn't notice it since I only changed the time and didn't touch the date. This only happens when editing the schedule for a migration scheduled for today, not for migrations…

  6. Invalid Administrators for Groups Site Collections

    Sharegate identifies the Universal Group Owners an invalid Administrator for every site collection associated with a Group. As this is default behavior, perhaps this should not be identified as "invalid."

  7. Ability to cancel any migration task

    When migrating in Insane Mode, a migration job can get stuck indefinitely In Progress because the Azure Import job to Office 365 becomes inaccessible in the background and this causes users to think their migration is still running sometimes for days. The problem is that users will think the operation still running can cause problems if they restart their migration or migrate new content to that same destination. An option to completely clear the task, a descriptive warning or anything that can help the users know they can safely restart the migration or migrate new content would be necessary at…

  8. Promote a subsite to a site using PowerShell

    I need to migrate 800 subsites and create them as Site Collection. I would like to do this with PowerShell because it's too long with the GUI

  9. Export Permissions Matrix Report as .csv

    For large organizations the result of the PMR can exceed the row limit of Excel. Exporting as .csv would prevent that.

  10. Add a Description to the "Notify me" Toggle

    The “Notify me” toggle in the Insights settings is confusing. It’s not immediately clear what it means. It would may be a good idea to add a description or revisit it.

  11. Change group owner in Sharegate

    Anthony wants the Owners security group members to be able to manage group memberships, in order to do that he needs to change the group owner from the site collection admin to the "Owners" group. It should be added to the transformation options for a group object when editing one in the Explorer.

    Greetings from Sharegate!
    Seems like we forgot to include the OneDrives in the migration’s flow last month… Well, here they are in Sharegate 7.3.2! Hope you’ll enjoy it.

    Thanks a lot for your feedback!

  13. Do not put an application shortcut when upgrading

    Holy ****!!! PLEASE for the love of Pete STOP putting a freaking shortcut on my desktop after every update!!! I can't stand software that does that!!! RAWR!!!! -- but seriously, love the product, except for that monstrous annoyance!!!! Once I got so frustrated that I accidentally deleted half the stuff on my desktop. Fortunately I had a backup. Ugh!!!

  14. Search to include sub site names

    The new explorer update is great, we can get to all the collections, but makes it hard for those people with subsites.

    I know subsites are now considered evil and the Microsoft Sharepoint world is now flat. However some customers still have subsites.

    Would be great if the search capability included the sub site names.

    Thanks
    Phil Worrell

  15. Ability to do a multi site selection in the Explorer

    I'd like to be able to select multiple select multiple sites in a row by clicking a keyboard key and then select first and last item. Currently, I need to select them one by one.

    Hello from Sharegate!
    It is possible to select different objects by clicking anywhere on the line. Hold shift and click on another line to select in bulk. It is also possible to select one line and hold ctrl before clicking on other lines to multi-select. We heard you and adjusted the area of the select box so you have fewer chances to lose your selection when using the select box.
    Hope that helps!

  16. Add the "manage columns" feature in the all tasks page

    I’d like to see the Source Path and Destination Site Name.

    Greetings from Sharegate !

    We released Sharegate 7.2 this week and I think you’ll be happy to discover the new Manage Columns button in the All Tasks History. The “Source Url” and “Destination Url” columns are there, available to add in the view. They will be added at the end, and of course, the columns can be reordered as you see fit.

    As always, your feedback is more than welcome, let us know what you think!

    Pow! It's Done.  ·  LP Lavoie responded

    Azure Express Route is a dedicated network-level path (e.g. : a physical cable or VPN connection) between your office and an Azure data center. To ensure your network traffic goes through it (including Sharegate traffic), you need to properly configure your own network infrastructure.

    If your O365 traffic is configured to use Express Route on the workstation or VM where Sharegate is configured, then Sharegate network traffic will use the Express Route.

  18. Make error records in reports exportable

    Just working through our OneDrive sites trying to get match up sites with users making sure everyone has one provisioned.

    As I have no access to the site the site with basic details report fails on a large number of them. I still howveer need to extract the info it did retrieve.
    I can export the results but not the errors, yet it is the errors I need to fix.

    Hello,

    Thanks for taking the time to post this idea! When exporting a report you can find an Error Tab inside the excel file. From there you’ll be able to see them and fix them.

    Thanks!
