  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.

      Unfortunately, due to re-priorization, we are moving this item back to “thinking about it”. The exposed solution was defined a while ago, but never started. We are currently evaluating if it is the right one. We are going back to the drawing board so we can offer you a better solution.

    • Compare Two Environments

      Quickly compare source and destination content in order to see what needs to be incrementally migrated and to prove to customers that every item from the source made it to destination.

      To be compared:
      -items
      -site settings
      -site features
      -lists and libraries

      • 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.

          Love the idea! Sharegate wants to help you get more out of the tool, beyond migration to help you adopt your new Office 365 platform or next SharePoint.

          Usage and Analytics isn’t something easily accessible, otherwise we’d already have built it. However, it’s something definitely high on our radar and currently being researched by one of our Product Owners.

          If you have more details to share, please reach out to us we would love to hear more.

            Definitely something to look into! Thanks for taking the time to share.

            The PMR or “Permissions Matrix Report” is one of our popular reports, it makes sense to want to leverage it for more than just a report.

            We’ll be evaluating what the best way to present this information shortly with our teams. As soon as I know more, will keep you posted with an update.
            Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback again.

          • Support Office 365 Labels During Migrations

            In a migration from on-premises to Office 365, we need to convert a records management functionality that handles document retention to date in Office 365 labels.

              We know this is a feature that a lot of you want. We would also really like to add it to ShareGate Desktop.

              However, as of right now, we are facing technical challenges which make it really hard to do so.

              We will keep looking into it and will add it when possible.

              Don’t hesitate to suggest other features as we really like to have input from our users.

            • Preserve the Selection and Configuration of Recent Jobs

              Currently the "Recent Migration Connections" only preserve the connection information. It doesn't "remember" any of the migration settings or the scope of the migration. There needs to be a way to preserve all those settings for that option to be useful.

                Thank you for this good feedback. We are currently looking into this ‘navigation’ issue to help you get back in a recent job more easily.
