Replace/Map user across environment without doing a migration
I see that I can map users during a migration process to change, but is there any way I can update just the user? Like, replace my name all over their site collection with a different user in an easy way with this tool?

I have senior management asking to not have their files with names of users who have left the company, so the created by and Modified by Columns of a List or library.
Can we either do a migration (lift and replace to the same library) using the user mapping tools or have the ability to replace User A with User B for all Created/Modified By fields, whilst not affecting the dates.

I would like to see the ability to simply find users A across an entire environment, then say replace user A with user B. This is extremely helpful when someone is replaced and the new user needs the same access. often people get added to so many sites they forget the exact locations so having this would save a lot of time. Obviously if a decent Permissions model was adopted through ACL's for example that could all be handled as part of the new user process.
It would be lovely to be able to replace one permission level with another. For instance, find all users and groups on a site that have read only and grant them edit instead.
we are in the process of demoting permission levels in our company. We have created a slightly lower edit permission level and need to move everyone from "Edit" to the new permission level.
