  1. Event counts (views, deletion, etc.) - Usage reporting

    -show number of views to a site, or a document.
    -show number of visits and of unique visitors.
    -show trending content.
    -show number of other audited events.
    -show most active users.
    -Run it on the entire farm and show stats by sites.

    The goal is to monitor internally the user's experience with SharePoint.

    With the different options already offered by Microsoft (Popularity and Usage reporting, Site health, etc.), we are wondering if the need of usage reporting in ShareGate is still relevant?

    -Are there any scenarios where the options offered by Microsoft don’t help?
    -How would the info gathered through this type of reporting would help?

    Let us know how you think this would help so we can build the solution to fit your needs.

  2. Automating Reporting Jobs with PowerShell

    This is a wonderful product!
    I wish I could script a report with targets as a schedule/automate job in powershell

    Hi everyone,

    We know this suggestion has been here for a while now. To be honest, this has never been a priority but today I am a bit curious on learning more about the ultimate need behind this idea.

    Would the ability to report on metadata help you prepare for migrations? Or is it connected to content management?

    What are your thoughts on this?

  4. Workflow Reporting

    - Find all workflows that are running or in-progress
    - See the name of the workflows
    - Run report on workflows, out of the box, SP designer, Nintext, 3rd party
    - Be able to create a report that will list the status of the workflows
    - Report on workflows published by a specific user
    - Report on how many workflow tasks are assigned to a particular user

    Hello ShareGaters,

    I was going through the comments in this thread and clearly understood your desire of visibility over user alerts (who created them, type of alerts, etc.) but I am curious to hear how the info would be used, how you would consume the info and most importantly, do you also feel the need to take any kind of actions over the alerts?

    I hope I’ll hear from you soon!

    Thank you

  7. Visual site map of all site collections

    would be really good if your product created a site map of all site collections and sub sites across the farm in a visual diagram that could be saved as an image or pdf

    Can you tell us more on what you are trying to do in terms of “Forms” migration ?

    Note: We are currently looking into Microsoft Forms Web Part migration in Office 365.
