    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.

  2. Progress Indicator of Pre-check & Migration

    Display more details while operation is running and as summary on completion:
    - Elapsed time
    - Breakdown by sites, lists/librairies, files, items instead of just "items" and "objects" count
    - Possibility to drill down progress breakdown by site, by list
    - Size of processed data (+ total if possible)
    - Inbound / Outbound network speeds
    - Remaining time (if possible)
    - Time / size of Azure upload jobs
    - etc.

    For Migrations in PowerShell, add -vebose like cmdlet to allow users to see the progress of the migration instead of waiting for the migration to finish/script execution to end.

    We’ll send you updates on this idea

    Recently, we launched ShareGate Apricot, a tool that offers to delegate the decision of archiving stale groups to users.

    That being said, an office 365 backup feature is not something we are planning to add to ShareGate Desktop. We’ll still keep the suggestion opened to new votes and comments and keep our eyes on it. But for now, it is not part of our priorities.

    We’ll update the suggestion if our plans change.

    Thank you,

  5. Add InfoPath Filters in Reporting

    By adding InfoPath to the filters, one could find all the lists that uses them and it could be helpful in some migration scenarios.

    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

  8. Run Audit report on subsite and other levels

    Audit report: We should be able to run reports based on sub-site, not just at the site collection level. Because this is a busy site, it can't handle all the views

  9. Powershell Automatic Script Based on UI Parameters

    It would be awesome if you had a function in the UI that allowed me to set up a migration, and then generate the corresponding PowerShell (save me the time of figuring how to encode all of my options).

    This is not in our plan as this would be a massive amount of work. We also fear that the results would be supbar compared to an hand-crafted script.

    We understand that PowerShell can be intimidating but our documentation is there to help (and so is our incredible support team).

    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.

  12. 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.

  13. Bulk Edit Records Items

    Bulk declare-as-record, and bulk undeclare-as-record! ... Had an instance where we had to do this to fix a metadata element with a List of 1900 items.

    Google sites as a source is not on our roadmap. Our current focus is Office 365 management and security.

    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

    Declined  ·  LP Lavoie responded

    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.
