  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. Add a ''Move'' and Delete Option

    Having to remember to keep the selection, verify the copy & then delete stuff when you're moving thousands of files around is really hard & painful when you make a mistake. It would be great if you guys had a move option that took care of all of that

  4. 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.

    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.

  6. 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.
