  1. options to get notigication when site owner leaves and automate the replacement process

    Some users could use a feature to help notify them when an administrator/owner leaves the entreprise.

    If the notification could come with an option to manage/replace the owners, this would add a layer of flexibility for the IT admins

    It is now possible to change the number of displayed items in your “All task” screen (max 500). You can also filter this list to display only migration reports.

    We hope this update helps with your request!

  4. Import-Document - Precheck in powershell

    Is it possible to do an Import-Document precheck?

    If importing from SharePoint you can add -WhatIf, to do a precheck :

    However this option is not available in the Import-Document command.

    Hello,

    Since Sharegate version 7.2, whenever you copy a modern team site to a new tenant, Members and Owners of the group will be copied between the two Office 365 Groups.

    As for the part where the Sharegate user is an owner after the migration, that will remain untouched for now. You can always manually remove yourself from the owners list once the migration is completed.

    Regards,

  6. new report to show all content shared with internal users

    Here is a feature request for your product team to create new report to show all content shared with "Everyone excluding external users" meaning all internal authenticated users and include Teams.

    Greetings from Sharegate !

    We released Sharegate 7.2 this week and I think you’ll be happy to know that we added a “Broken Inheritance” tag in the explorer. So when you navigate inside your site collections, there is now a visual indication that the object has custom permissions.

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

    Hi!

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback via Sharegate’s Uservoice. We wanted to let you know that this feature is in fact already available in Sharegate!

    1. Audit Report
    2. Make sure to select the event deleting or restoring items

  9. List "Calendars"

    I am looking for a list "Calendar" and I know that there are "types" such as a Links List and a Custom List, etc. I don't know if the "explorer" or "Reporting" can "list" the types of lists / document libraries (well that's "done" right?) and allow me to find "ahh the Marketing Calendar called "cool stuff" instead of ...Marketing Calendar" Thank you!

    1. Create New Report
    2. Object type: List
    3. Filter: List template, calendar

    or

    1. Create New Report
    2. Object type: List
    3. Column: List template
    4. Your results will show all lists and their template type (Calendar, Links, Custom Lists)

  10. Add Number of Users to Reports

    I've run into a situation where I can't get access to the SharePoint farm to run my powershell cmdlt to export Users in each web. Since I can copy Users with Sharegate it seems like you guys could easily provide this functionality. Thanks!

    Hi,

    We don’t have a specific report to do this however we do have a current workaround:
    1. New Report
    2. Object type : user
    3. Run the report on the scope of your choice
    4. You will get results of all the users who have access/how many there are

  11. Write to logfile continuously as the import is taking place

    Today, whether importing via Powershell og GUI, the import has to finish without any breakdowns in order to extract the log. It would be better, imho, if Sharegate could write to a logfile continuously as the import progressed. Otherwise you might end up with a partial import and no logs to see the status for those files already imported (or not).

  12. Better definition for the name of Reports

    It would be exceedingly helpful if there were descriptions/definitions to go along with the name of the reports. For example, I just ran something sites with basic details.. cool, but i have no idea what it is pulling. Are these sites without a lot of complexity, some other information specification? i have no idea.. which makes it not very useful :/

    Pow! It's Done.  ·  Sarah responded

    Hello Janis,

    Thank you for your suggestion. I have great news for you! We did add a short description of all the reports in the latest versions of Sharegate. You can simply update the tool (https://en.share-gate.com/download2) to see them.

    The sites with basic details is now called “Site report” in the “most popular” section at the top.

    I hope this helps. Let me know if you have further comments or suggestions!

  13. Preserve pre-check reports in the UI

    It would be useful for users, and support, if pre-check reports were preserved and listed like migration reports in the UI. This could save time if someone needs to go back for troubleshooting purposes, or to see if the migration yields different results

  14. ShareGate Version Number

    Installed 5.20 yesterday. I was hoping to find an easy way to find version number in app to confirm, but can't find it. (I was looking for an About dialog box.)

    Perhaps include ShareGate version number in the Title bar that also serves as a link to more information about the version?

  15. Report 'Checked Out Documents'

    Can Report 'Checked Out Documents' only list checked out documents instead of both checked out documents and locked documents, since all our documents after becoming records are locked.
    Thanks!

    Hello Sharon,

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback via Sharegate’s Uservoice.

    From what I understand, you’d like to run a report that will display only the checked-out documents without the never check-in docs. Well, that’s something that can already be done.

    Simply run a report with the follow filters:
    Object type : Document
    Filters
    Checked Out Status IS Checked Out
    Never Checked In IS No

    I hope this helps!

  16. Change site navigation to start with site collections

    It takes me a a very long time to scroll through the thousands of sites to find the site collection I want to report on.

    Actually Sharegate already retains all author names and timestamps when migrating content. If that’s not the case for you, please contact our super-friendly Support team!

    Note that, for some combinations of on-premises source & destination, you will need to install our Server Extension to preserve all values – https://support.share-gate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000640088-List-of-Values-the-Server-Extension-Preserves

    Regarding the Word application – That wasn’t written by us! :-) But if any dates don’t appear correct post-migration again do reach out to our Support
