Convert Web Parts and Pages from Classic to Modern
During a migration, have the ability to convert Site Pages and their classic Web Parts to their Modern version (when it exists).
- If a Classic Web Part does not exist as Modern, it should not be converted.
- Custom Web Parts should be ignored.
We are planning on doing this in a near future and will keep you updated once we actually start.
In addition, if for some reason we don't want the classic page converted during migration, it would be nice to have the option to 'not replace' the current modern home page (renaming current modern home page to something else). This way, the Site Owner could use their classic migrated page if desired, but also has the option to still use the modern home page.
Thank you. The ability to convert classic to modern pages would definitely be helpful -especially when migrating to Office 365 Groups so Site Owners can more easily access the controls for Group Members and Site Permissions.

It could be a great tool for modern UI adoption!
Please building upon the ConvertTo-PnPClientSide page framework so that we can more easily migrate publishing, wiki and web part pages
We are about to migrate our Sharepoint 2010 sites to modern o365 sites, so we could really use this feature! We are using Sharegate for more then 4 years now...
Currently Sharegate is unable to migrate any pages from a classic or modern site, to a modern site. This can be a major issue for organizations moving modern sites from a tenant to a new one, or just trying to preserver certain elements from the source
