Performance option change based on time of the day
Some users might want to set times to change the performance levels in Sharegate based on overall usage. It would be nice to set the performance level based on the time of the day

Hi, I'm here to suggest you a new feature :)
I set Low Impact in order to not disturb the works of users but... I'm forgetten to set normal/high in the evening....
Can you evaluate a scheduling option?
Microsoft tell us that throttling is over the order 10 times stricter during peak work hours than it is in the 8pm to 8am block, in the time zone of the destination SPO tenant.
Anecdotally we’ve found this to be very much the case, we rarely see throttling outside of these core hours, but frequently nuke a tenant during the working day, both with Sharegate and with CSOM PowerShell scripts.
We’ve been trying to take advantage of this by starting our migrations with Sharegate at maximum speed, in Insane Mode, after 8pm on Friday, and then manually switching it down in the GUI before Monday morning, but this isn’t brilliant for long-running migrations. I’m about to start 5x 500GB fileshare migrations, which may take 4-6 weeks apiece, that’s a lot of switching.
What would be great is a dual-speed facility; low-medium speed during set core hours, and then pedal to the metal in non-throttling hours. This would help get the maximum data out without upsetting the Microsoft speed policing unit too much.
I’d see this looking something like the mock up below, 2 distinct time and day selectors (weekends are in the low-throttling zone, unclear if bank holidays are, we suspect not) with independent behaviour around performance. I’d also like to see the Insane Mode selector brought back to this screen, and maybe have that aspect controlled by the selector too, though that’s a very much 3rd tier of usefulness.
This would be advantageous for any on-premises source; file shares or on-prem SharePoint, for small companies in particular, can experience performance degradation with heavy-load migration activities.
