How can we improve ShareGate Desktop?

Custom rules or columns, and more built-in columns in Inventory and migration/pre-check reports

[Admin: Merged all suggestions pertaining to inventory- or migration-related reports. This will allow better understanding of the priority of this topic]

Pre-Check and Migration reports
-Add more columns (sizes, end times, etc.)
-Also enhancement to the Session summary screen to include URLs, total size, etc.

Would be very good if we as users can customize the rules and columns:
-Add custom columns like Site owners
-Be able to change the settings of the inventory (ex: change the unused sites time to x months)
-Have more available details at each level (Number of items, Last modified date, size, etc.)
-See the item count as well as the size of lists and library
-Add columns containing the created date and last modified by.
-Make folders a distinct object (different than an item or document).
-List workflow names and locations, as well as custom solutions.
-List content types.

*Have better self-explanatory messages with clear solution*

    This x1000.
    ShareGate is great at telling me useful information, but where it falls over is if I've come up with more useful information that I'd like to know.
    This feature would greatly improve the tool!

    last changed and create date is extremely interesting when analyzing file shares.

    When doing an inventory of SharePoint, it would be nice to see not only the size of the list/library but also the item count. Distinction of item/document vs. folder woudl be extra nice :)

    Add size of the files in the migration report so users can have a general idea of the quantity of data they migrated

  • Shannon Butler commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It would be useful to have a column or columns that provide information like date created, date modified and possibly user who last modified

  • Marino Valentino commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Hi Sharegate Team, it would be nice to have also the NTFS Attribute "CreationTime", "LastWriteTime" and "Owner" in the File Share Inventory.
    Best Regards

    It would be a tremendous help to include the last modified date in the Inventory Details feature.

    Would be very useful to see the # of items in a site collection in the inventory. You get the total size but when you migrate you only see the # of files and objects migrated so you have no idea how long the migration will take. Either that or just show estimated amount of time migration will take in the inventory like you do with the File Share option.

    For example:
    - Site owners
    - Number of items
    - Last modified date

    Merged for different tickets:
    - Site owner
    - File count
    - File size
    - Creation date
    - Last modified user

    Add a modified date column to Fileshare Inventory details. Looking at what parts of the fileshare I can archive and I need to know what parts are being used quickly.

    In Inventory, when you see an error or warning about a List Template or Site Template that caused the migration to fail, how to identify what the offending template is?

  • Stephanie Pelland commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    informative or self-explanatory about the exact cause of the error/warning or why a specific object was skipped during the migration.

  • AdminNathalie (Voice of the User, ShareGate) commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    We’ve just release Sharegate 5.15 where you will find Inventory details for SharePoint and O365 like:
    - List of Site collections and Sites
    - List of Unused site
    - List custom applications on the site
    - List of SharePoint 2010/2013/Nintex Workflows (reusable, list or site Workflows)
    - Warnings and errors for migration planification

    If you have any other questions, just let me know and I’ll be happy to help. And have a fantastic Monday!

    I would like to see the inventory include size and number of items so I can estimate the length of time a site will take in relation to other sites migrated.

  • Sarah commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I would like to be able to find our the files that were modified in the last 6 months (or a timeframe of my choice), a bit like the "filter by time range" in the property template.
