      This one was tough for me to update the status. It’s important for us to deliver the best experience possible to our customers and the feedback we receive is a big part of that.

      The request to scan inside of content for links and adjusting them or finding broken links is something we’ve looked at quite a few times given the number of requests for it.

      Though we may evaluate some of these suggestions separately in the future, we do not plan on working on this in the near term.
      An update will be posted if something changes, one closer to being evaluated would be broken links on SharePoint Pages.

      We’re always grateful for any additional insight that would help us build a better tool. Thanks for leaving us feedback.

    • Pause Migration

      It would be nice to be able to pause the migration and then later restart it

        Thanks for taking the time to post this idea. We looked at it with the team and for now have decided that it’s not something we will be working on short term.

        We’ll keep looking at the requests and update if we anything changes

          Though we’ve had support for Exchange Public Folders in the past, we decided to remove it and not support it with our tool.

          The intricacies of Exchange and especially Public Folders migration can be quite complicated. We did not feel that we were bringing a good experience to our customers.

          Though one should never say never, so we’ll keep you posted if there is an update. Thanks for taking the time!

            This was not an easy decisions, but we had had to make the difficult choice. There are less and less SharePoint 2007 versions out there and the “plumbing” for that platform is immensely different from SharePoint 2010+ versions.

            This meant we would have to re-write almost everything for SharePoint 2007 and decided to bring more reports and management features for the latest platforms instead.

            Thanks for taking the time and sharing your feedback.

          • Better explanation of the Insight flow

            it was not clear to me that emails would automatically start going out to site owners. I figured this was something I would have to turn on.

              With Sharegate 8.2, which was released last week, we removed Insights from the application, including the extension that send email to your users. We realized the implementation wasn’t on point and we are going back to the drawing board.

              I’ll decline this suggestion since it’s no longer relevant, but we will ensure that next time we do something similar, everything is clearer for users.

              Thank you for your feedback, it’s always appreciated.

            • Bring Back the Tabs in the Migration Tool

              My team really misses the tab that used to open to show the migration status. Now when you start a migration, there is no intuitive way to go back to the contents (source/destination) screen. Is there any way to bring back the tab?

                We haven’t actually brought back the tabs in the migration tool. However, you can now restore previous migrations from the All tasks panel.

                Also, restoring previous migration sessions will reload them with the options intact.

                We feel like this solution, while not exactly what asked for, should allows you to do what you want to do.

                If you have any other suggestion, don’t hesitate to contact us again.

                  • Make Insights Available to SharePoint Admins

                    When I heard about the new Insights feature, I highly anticipated using it. However, I was saddened to be greeted by a message which said I needed to be a Global Admin to use it.

                    Not all organisation provide their admins with the Global Admin access. We should still need to access information provided by Insights, whether they were available in read only or not.

                    It would be useful especially for larger organizations where admin duties are segregated.

                    Thanks

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

                          After thinking about it, we have decided to decline this suggestion.

                          This is not currently on our road map since the effort required by our development team would be really high and we prefer to put this effort on other thing, like a better support of the modern workplace.

                          Thank you for your suggestion

                            Sharegace can now report on (find) and force check-in of checked-out documents, including “never checked-in” documents. We consider it is better practice to clean up prior to a migration, therefore we will not work on further support for migration of checked-out documents.

                          • Insight on Orphaned Users & Groups

                            I would love to have an insight that monitored orphaned users throughout our Office 365 tenant. It doesn’t appear to be an option to remove Orphaned Users in Office 365 groups. Currently, orphaned users can only be removed from SharePoint sites.

                            It'd be nice to be able to gain visibility on the orphaned users of O365 groups and remove them from the groups afterwards.

                            - Also provide a report/list of these orphaned users and groups

                              With the recent changes we made to Sharegate Desktop’s vision and the removal of the Insights feature, this suggestion is no longer applicable.

                              owever, I invite you to look for the Orphaned User Report, available in our Reporting section. We realize that this item also included a suggestion to find orphaned users in groups. Please note that this suggestion wasn’t forgotten. We will evaluate it and see where it can fit in Sharegate Desktop’s roadmap. Stay tuned!

                              Right now the only thing we're able to do is to either add a permission level to a SP group or add members. It would be nice to be able to copy the users from one to another

                                    After thinking about it, we decided to close this suggestion.

                                    We feel like our current offer should cover most case for Box migration to SharePoint.

                                    We know PowerShell is not always the easiest thing to use, but our support can always help you when needed.

                                        After thinking about it, we have decided to decline this suggestion.

                                        This would require quite some development effort from our team and we prefer to put this effort on a better support of the modern workplace.

                                        Thank you for your suggestion.

                                      • LARGER Scroll bar!

                                        Please, the scroll bar is EXTREMELY small on the Select Orphaned Users and on the CLean Orphaned Users. PLEASE make it MUCH wider! it seems like it is 3 pixels wide!

                                            As mentioned previously, this is not on our roadmap for the time being.

                                            I just wanted to mention that there is a quick workaround which is to export the folders and documents from OpenText to a file system and then import them into SharePoint using Sharegate with the Import from File Share option.

                                            For more info on the import option: https://support.share-gate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000640588-Walkthrough-Import-from-File-Share

                                            Regards,
