  1. Migration tabs

    Can the tabs in the Migration client be grouped? When a new tab appears it always goes to the end of the list. e.g. Clicking details on a should appear next to the task is belongs to rather then at the end of the tab row.

  2. Optimize Clean Orphaned User View

    I REALLY wish the "Clean Orphaned Users" view allowed you to export to Excel or open a larger window to see without having to scroll down. Sometimes people get married and have a name change and therefore showup as orphaned users despite still being employees. The only way I can tell is to check a special OU in Active Directory and compare against the Sharegate list BEFORE I select for an account to be removed. This process would be much easier if I could maximize the popup window that comes up when I use the Clean Orphaned Users Sharegate feature.

  3. Be able to hide O365 groups and ODFB

    When connecting a tenant using the admin URL in the Explorer, it would be nice to be able to select if we want to include or not O365 groups and OneDrive for Business or be able to hide them. That way, it would reduce the chance to accidentally run reports on ODFB or Groups when not intended

    You could run a report on your differents objects types that permissions can be broken and run the “Restore Inheritance” action.

  5. guide to reporting

    I would ilke a guide of all the things we can report on for every object type. For document we can report on size, file extension, and other things for example, for every object type.

  6. Azure import Report and Alerts

    Once the share-gate migration is completed, would like to know the comprehensive report and alerts on the successfull completion of Azure imports into target site. Should be able to know when the site is ready for use and release to production. for ex: Share-gate migration in the evening, but Azure miration until the early morning next day.

    Good evening,

    With our latest Sharegate release 5.18 we’ve added the location to the name of the Inventory task, you can also see it in the breadcrumb when clicking from the All Task view.

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

    Hi from Sharegate,

    The Manage activation page has been updated.
    https://license.share-gate.com/Offline/Activations

    You can find now all this information for each activation:
    - Product Name
    - Activation Name
    - Activation Email
    - First Name
    - Last Name
    - Activation Date
    - Expiration Date
    - Machine Code

    It’s now easier to identify who currently has a seat in a multi-user license.

    Have a nice day!

    Nathalie

    When you edit the report name for a migration/migration report, the new report name is not preserved when you Export/Save the report.

  11. Type/Search in drop-down lists

    When I am about to edit a Transformation, after a report ran, for me, Major Versions, I go to set Versions, then I want to click M for Major Vesrsion, is there a way to type that and have it scroll down through the M's to get to Major?

  12. Total size (All Versions) column units consistency

    Currently when I include the "Total Size (All Versions)" column in a Report he data is represented either in MB or GB. When exporting to Excel it is tricky to sort by this column due to the mixture of units.

    I would prefer the column to report MB. Then if I export to Excel I can quickly sort by that column without having to convert the GB values to MB.

    I would also prefer the column to just contain the number value rather than it include the "MB" or "GB" characters.

  13. Ease the slection of multiple sites

    Hi There !
    I wanted to chack if any personal site was public by launching a permission matrix report... To do that I would have to click one by one the site I want to scan...
    If I'm not wrong, today when you want to select multiple sites, you can't use the shift / ctrl key to select in a row hundred of site. Would be great to have this option in future to ease our life.
    Kind regards,
    Patrice

  14. Improve message when migrating ASPX pages

    Please change the wording, it is very misleading, and I actually question whether it continues to process. I first thought it would copy everything in Normal mode.

    Current warning: "The Insane Mode does not support copying ASPX pages. The copy will continue without using Insane Mode."

  15. Ability to Modify Dates in Scheduled Tasks

    To be able to modify dates for scheduled tasks would be AWESOME. Someone on our team scheduled 20 permissions matrix reports to process every Friday, and then the team decided that Saturday would work better. Rather than have to delete and recreate the scheduled task, it would be great if the date could be changed. Thanks!

  16. Change Size reports column to just a number with the heading as Size in MB

    Change Size reports column to just a number with the heading as Size in MB

    With every report I have to remove the space MB from the size values on certain reports to get the column to sort properly.

    If the column just said size in MB and the rest be a number that would make more sense.

  17. Adding AD group as Site Collection Administrator

    Under the Explorer tab, when you select a site collection, you can add or remove Site Collection Administrators. This is a nice feature, as traversing and making changes to Site Collections runs smoother and faster through Sharegate, than running through SPO's Admin Interface.

    The problem I am running into is we have several Human and Service account Admins that need to be added to every single site collections. Rather than add them individually we have created an AD Group object called SP_Admin. This contains all SPO tenant admins and is an easier grouping to add to the Site Collection Admin…

  19. Better documentation about the "Notify me" setting of Insights

    The “notify me” setting is confusing.  It’s not immediately clear what it means.  Would love to see an option to notify an email address we specify, instead of site/group owners.
    I couldn’t find any docu on what the “notify me” setting means.

  20. Turn off Insights

    I don't see a cancel button. It keeps scanning locations we don't care about.
