How can we improve ShareGate Desktop?

Add InfoPath Filters in Reporting

By adding InfoPath to the filters, one could find all the lists that uses them and it could be helpful in some migration scenarios.

We have no plan or adding InfoPath filters in reporting. We know it would make your migration to the cloud a little bit smoother, but it doesn’t fit in ShareGate Desktop’s current narrative.

    InfoPath reporting is kinda important to migration. PowerShell is a stopgap but not as helpful as putting it in the product. Definitely an omission SG!

    This is disappointing that it will not be supported. It would be helpful to know which lists use InfoPath forms in classic sites as we migrate them to modern sites and move to PowerApps.

    Would be great if we could have a report to show all InfoPath forms in an environment.

    This would be extremely helpful since a lot of the list that use InfoPath would need to be recreated using PowerApps or another Form builder.

    We need to know which list has InfoPath form so that when we mass migrate from SP2010 to SPO, we can check those lists and make sure they are working properly ...

    I ran a pre-check migration from SP2013 to SP Online and it told me each list where the InfoPath forms are being used.

    I have a PowerShell script to get a list of InfoPath forms from a SharePoint server; but it has to be run on the SharePoint server. I would prefer to use your tool to get the InfoPath form and content details. I have a tool that transforms the InfoPath form to a Nintex classic form. http://www.formtrek.com/
    I called in to Customer Support and this feature request is being monitored by Development. We need more people to request it here and to Customer Support.

    Our company has to comply with state laws which are different for each state. As a result, there are different InfoPath forms for each state. Also, the IT teams in each state have become proficient with InfoPath, so there are many forms throughout the company. This feature would be very useful to see what is out there. Thanks.

    I am working on a large migration for a client who uses InfoPath heavily. It would be GREAT to be able to report on this and pass that info on to our users for UAT!

    Just searched on this too. Sooner or later we all will be tasked with assisting users migrate InfoPath forms to an alternative solution. Knowing how many there are and who owns them is the first step in planning that effort. Please add the report feature to a future release.

    this would be great just spent time looking to see if you can do this, but obviously not

    This feature would be as important as the Lists with Workflows report. I hope you can get it added!

  • Christian Arnold commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    We are also highly interested in that feature. Currently we are only able to report on Form Libraries, but normal InfoPath forms are not covered by this report...
    From a strategy and governance perspective it would be a very important feature for us!

    I really wish there were an easy way to find out which lists have custom infopath forms before the migration. Now I need to go into each list individually. Thanks for listening.

  • Ben Stori commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I would like to see a report that I can run to tell me what custom lists have been modified using InfoPath for the different forms.
