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
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 don’t plan on adding progress indicator as we feel it would only become misleading because estimation are really hard to make due to technical limitations.
I have recently used the Microsoft Migration tool v2 and they can show a progress bar on the total of files for completion and a progress bar and that is running a very basic tool.
Show a progress bar during a migration in order to know if it,s almost finished or not.
Antoine, is there a way that Sharegate could scan the site and say "this will take more than XX hours in Insane mode / normal mode"? Just having an idea of how long it will take will help.
Whenever we are migrating, we do not have any idea, how much time it is going to take.
If we can know the estimated time or remaining time to complete the migration, we can plan the other things accordingly.
It will be really really helpful, if you can add this functionality.
If you can't provide a time (because that can depend on the server or computer resources processing the migration), can you add an item countdown? I am processing what I thought was a relatively small structure copy that is now on its 14th hour. It would be great to know if it has 100 items left or 1,000.
Hello, it would be useful to have an estimated end time for the migration of elements
Is there a way in ShareGate to show how long it will take to copy data via an Import Copy process? Wanted to get an idea if there was a status bar or something that shows time remaining or number of files remaining? The Migration report screen does not provide any details about rate of copy and estaimte of how long. Thanks for any guidance.

While a task is running, it would be great to have some indication of how far along in the process it is and/or how much time is remaining until it is complete.

It would be great if we have some feature which calculates the StartTime and EndTime from the migration report as it shows in console, and calculate the timing in HH:MM kind of format to better get the duration calculated rather than using the manual work or the Powershell script. Thank you! :)
Having more details on the upload progress for large files would be very helpful. I'm looking at 6 GB and 4 GB files, and I have no idea how much longer they have, which is frustrating.
It would be great to have a kind of progress bar for sites that are being migrated. Or perhaps a progress bar for the overall migration.
I need to know how much content I'm migrating and how much time I have to wait until completion.
Overall the product is really good and so is customer service but progress bar/estimated time is definitely needed. I can understand it could be hard but at least start from somewhere basic. I can't believe that it was raised in 2016 and now we are in end of 2018.
oh, it would be good idea if someone from Sharegate can actually respond on this?
Progress Bar is the proper name :)
Great Product Guys. I think a status bar would be a nice feature to add. It would help provide a visual for these larger migrations.
I am migrating tenant to tenant One drive folders of 400 users, no idea how many data is migrated in 2 days now. would love to be able to see an update of data migrated until now.

It would be nice to have a tool that could display some sort of estimate on how long a migration could take.
This is more around on-prem migrations because I understand there are variables in the cloud that make it hard to give these details.
Maybe this has been shared also, not sure how hard this would be, but have some sort of meter or progress bar to let you know how much has been migrated and how much is left.
Dont you think that the migration time can be estimated?
i cant really figure out how much time i have left for my migration (or if f.ex. i have to leave in an hour then if it would make sense to start my migration )
With the newer version of Sharegate, the UX for long running tasks is bad. When I try to run a Permissions matrix across our tenant, it takes 12-20 hours. That is probably something that can't be changed due to the limits of physics and Office 365 throttling. However, having a "Loading permissions..." screen with no information is not helpful. The "task manager" tells me number of items and errors, but with now way of knowing what the erros are, I have to wait for the entire job to complete to know whether the task is worth waiting for. A specific improvement request would be to be able to present partial results of long running task while the task is running.
