How can we improve ShareGate Desktop?

App Authentication

Publish an app in the SharePoint store with the permissions set to full control for the site collection and allow app only calls. Then add an option for App Authentication in the ShareGate desktop app that uses the ClientId and ClientSecret from the app to authenticate.

A site collection admin can then add the app to their site, and allow any user with ShareGate to perform the migration.

Benefits include not having to log in, not having to grant site collection admin access, and the metadata would appear as ShareGate instead of the user performing the action.

        First of all, you guys freaking ROCK!!!! I love the product and how incredibly talented your development team is to pump out updates and enhancements as fast as you do. That said...

        It would be FANTASTIC if you had a lightweight server-side migration agent that could orchestrate migration jobs rather than running the full Sharegate client on the server and eating up system resources.

        This agent could conceivably be combined with the Insane Mode client and could communicate asynchronously with the Sharegate client on user's system such that we can shutdown our system, disconnect from the internet, and reconnect to the server later from our client to check on the progress of the job and attend to any errors that may have arisen while away.

        I don't often ask for this, but I would love to hear back on this particular request. :)
