  1. Export Report to PDF, Email, SP library, etc.

    Export Report results to...
    - a SharePoint list or library instead of to Excel so all users can see it and set up alerts on it
    - in a CSV format
    - a PDF file
    - send by email, even automatically send some of the reports to the site owners for example
    - a fileshare, or drive of your choice

    Also able to do so with Custom Reports.

    This has been our number one request in what seems like forever, but with today’s release of ShareGate Desktop, we can finally have a new number one!

    We’ve added the ability to automatically export reports and migration reports to a SharePoint document library upon completion of the task. By leveraging the power of Microsoft Flow (or workflow for on-premise users), you will be able to move that report to wherever you want, be it email or PowerBI.

    The options can be found in the setting screen of the report or in the options tab for migrations.

    We know we don’t cover the PDF part of the request, but we encourage to go vote for it here: https://feedback.sharegate.com/forums/912880/suggestions/38625361

    Good evening!

    You can now schedule all the Reports inside Sharegate!!! You can also schedule some actions like Clean Orphaned Users. For more information – https://support.share-gate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004727427-Schedule-a-Task

    I’ve created a new suggestion concerning the idea of “Send the results of the report by email.” You are very welcome to add comments and vote for the idea: https://sharegate.uservoice.com/forums/373710/suggestions/16387222

    I love this new release!

    Have a nice day!

    With the latest release of ShareGate Desktop, it is now possible to schedule the migration through the UI.

    This should allow you to easily migrate at off-hours or at any time that is convenient for you. This also allows you, if need be, to schedule a recurring migration.

    The time, date and recurrence of a schedule migration can be modified through the Scheduled Tasks UI.

    We know this only covers the schedule part of this suggestion. If you want to vote on the planner part, please do so on this new suggestion we opened: https://feedback.sharegate.com/forums/912880/suggestions/38066314

  4. Break up Views and Forms Copy Structure option

    I just stumbled across this options-interface and thought I needed to migrate the views but NOT the InfoPath Forms. Yet I cannot separate them.

    Hello from Sharegate! We released Sharegate 7.1 last week and we are happy to let you know that you can now create a new report on Site Collections or Sites with “Access request e-mail” and “Allow access request” filters and columns. From there, you can edit the “Access request e-mail” in the properties displayed in the Quick Actions panel (in the report or directly in the explorer). Emptying the field will disable the “Allow access request” implicitly.
    We hope you enjoy these new functionalities!

  8. Update connection login or password

    Hi,

    I noticed that when I changed by account password. It did not allowed me to access the content of a site and I didn't find any option to update my connectivity to the site but to disconnect and connect again.
    I would love see an option to update password that is used to connect to a Site Collection.

    Thank you.

  9. Ability to Automate the Export of Scheduled Reports

    Some users would find extremely practical to be able to have Sharegate automatically export the scheduled report to a predetermined location on drive. This would help bring them to meetings, and help team manage their SP environments.

    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!

    Pow! It's Done.  ·  LP Lavoie responded

    Sharegate now fully supports migration to both Team sites connected to Groups and Communication sites.

    Currently this is achieved by toggling the site’s DenyAddAndCustomizePages setting, which requires Tenant administrator role. We are working with Microsoft to enable a way in O365 to support the features without the need for this setting.

  12. SharePoint Inventory report details

    Ideally I would really like to be able to drill into the environment via the Inventory tool. Sort site collections by size, number of sites, workflows, etc. Find the lists/libraries that have the most items or largest space usage.

    For the Errors and Warnings section of the Inventory tool, I'm not sure what value it provides to say X number of sites have custom master pages or unsupported templates without telling me what site they are.

    It looks like nice very high level start but it's missing many of the features the File Share Inventory has.

    Pow! It's Done.  ·  Nathalie responded

    We’ve just release Sharegate 5.15 where you will find Inventory details for SharePoint and O365 like:
    - List of Site collections and Sites
    - List of Unused site
    - List of SharePoint 2010/2013/Nintex Workflows (reusable, list or site Workflows)
    - Warnings and errors for migration planification

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

  14. Rename Tasks

    File migration jobs have a default name that cannot be changed. This creates lots of jobs with (near) identical names making it nearly impossible to determine which job is which task.

    Make that option available in the UI and for Powershell jobs

    With today’s release of ShareGate Desktop, you can now rename your migration tasks, both in the UI when you migration has started or in PowerShell using the -TaskName argument.

    I’m closing this suggestion as we don’t plan to do it for reports. If this is something you wish to have in the future, please don’t hesitate to submit a new suggestion.

    Good evening,

    We’re very happy with the new release Sharegate 5.18: You can now check in all checked-out documents!!! :-D

    You can find the whole documentation here: https://support.share-gate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115006418448-Check-In-all-Checked-Out-Documents

    I’ve created another suggestion concerning documents that have never been check-in. You are very welcome to add your vote and comment the idea: https://sharegate.uservoice.com/forums/373710/suggestions/19122679

    Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any other question!

    Best Regards,

  20. Smart search or autocomplete search box in Explorer

    It would be great to have a smart search or autocomplete search box for when you are looking to quickly connect to a site collection using part of its name.
