Quickly compare source and destination content in order to see what needs to be incrementally migrated and to prove to customers that every item from the source made it to destination.
To be compared:
-lists and libraries201 votes
This is not currently in our plan to allow our users to compare two environments.
We might do it in the future, possibly starting with permission as it seems like it would be the most useful part on security level.
For example, if a file has been deleted in the source after it had gotten copied over to SharePoint, can it be deleted in SharePoint?
The goal is to re-sync only the updates, additions and deletions without the need to copy the whole thing again. It allows to keep on using the source environment while keeping the destination one sync until we're ready to go live with the new site.
-documents (move them to a different location if the user has moved it since the last update)
As much as we hear your need, this is not currently on our road map. We will revisit it eventually.
[Admin note: Merged all suggestion related to more complex filtering during Migration or Import]
- Filter on full file names instead of just exensions.
- Filter with wildcards
- Include / Exclude folder by name using the custom templates
- Exclude specific (sub) folders based on names
- Timestamp/range filters - last modified date and created date
- List or site template filters
- Filter by property (name, type, etc.)
- Filter by size
- Filter empty objects (sites, libraries, folders, ...)
- Exclude specific type of objects (Microfeed...)
We feel like our migration experience is quite good right now and we don’t plan on doing custom rules and filters for now.
Some of those can already be done using PowerShell, SharePoint views and other means.
We will eventually reevaluate this once we advance further in our roadmap.
Support migration of Microsoft Teams
We need to do a tenant to tenant migration of Office 365. Your tool looks like it could aid with that, but my question is about Microsoft Teams migration. Aside from the Teams content that is in SharePoint, I have not found any supported method to other content from teams such as chats and channel conversation. Is Sharegate working on this?105 votes
We have officially started working on this and are aiming at releasing this before the summer.
We will still be looking at feedback given here to ensure that the experience will suits your needs.
Display more details while operation is running and as summary on completion:
- Elapsed time
- Breakdown by sites, lists/librairies, files, items instead of just "items" and "objects" count
- Possibility to drill down progress breakdown by site, by list
- Size of processed data (+ total if possible)
- Inbound / Outbound network speeds
- Remaining time (if possible)
- Time / size of Azure upload jobs
For Migrations in PowerShell, add -vebose like cmdlet to allow users to see the progress of the migration instead of waiting for the migration to finish/script execution to end.103 votes
We don’t plan on adding progress indicator as we feel it would only become misleading because estimation are really hard to make due to technical limitations.
The idea is to use the migration report to start a new migration of the files that error out only, instead of running a full incremental migration.97 votes
As much as we really like this idea, it doesn’t fit in the current narrative of ShareGate Desktop.
We will for sure reevaluate this one in a near future.
Having to remember to keep the selection, verify the copy & then delete stuff when you're moving thousands of files around is really hard & painful when you make a mistake. It would be great if you guys had a move option that took care of all of that87 votesThinking About it · AdminJean-Philippe Beaulieu (Voice of the User / User researcher, ShareGate) responded
I am glad to say that we are currently exploring the possibility to add an option to automatically make Read-only and/or Delete the source of migration if it goes errorless.
We’ll keep you updated with any news on this.
It would be nice to be able to pause the migration and then later restart it63 votes
Thanks for taking the time to post this idea. We looked at it with the team and for now have decided that it’s not something we will be working on short term.
We’ll keep looking at the requests and update if we anything changes
Preserve List Items ID's59 votesNot For Now · AdminJean-Philippe Beaulieu (Voice of the User / User researcher, ShareGate) responded
Lately we decided to shift most of our energy towards migrating, managing and adopting Office 365. When we create new features, we make sure they also work with SharePoint on-premise (if possible), but we are not planning on developing more options of features specifically for on-premise at the moment.
I’ll keep the suggestion open and our ears are still open to new comments.
During a migration, have the ability to convert Site Pages and their classic Web Parts to their Modern version (when it exists).
53 votesNot For Now · AdminJean-Philippe Beaulieu (Voice of the User / User researcher, ShareGate) responded
- If a Classic Web Part does not exist as Modern, it should not be converted.
- Custom Web Parts should be ignored.
After a review of our roadmap, this suggestion is not a high priority at the moment.
With all the improvements that were done to the SharePoint PnP Modernization framework (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/transform/modernize-userinterface-site-pages) over the last year, we feel like this is a solid alternative right now to convert classic pages to modern ones so we decided to put our efforts in adding more migration capabilities (Teams migration coming soon) to our tool instead.
We’ll keep the suggestion open and will monitor the comments and feedback and will review it in the future.
To have the ability to migration video files when Microsoft Stream replaces Office 365 Video Portal51 votes
We understand the need for this and are evaluating the possibility of doing it.
We don’t plan on adding new source of data in a foreseeable future, so I’ll decline this.
We prefer to offer a solid experience in the world of Microsoft than to add too many sources.
Be able to create a Migration Queue where a migration job will start only when the previous one is completed.
Example: SG Job 1 Starts > SG Job 1 Completes > SG Job 2 Starts > SG Job 2 Completes > SG Job 3 Starts > SG Job 3 Completes > and so on.
Can we schedule migrations that start when another finishes (dependent)? Not with PowerShell, but with the current UI.42 votes
It would be awesome if you had a function in the UI that allowed me to set up a migration, and then generate the corresponding PowerShell (save me the time of figuring how to encode all of my options).36 votes
This is not in our plan as this would be a massive amount of work. We also fear that the results would be supbar compared to an hand-crafted script.
We understand that PowerShell can be intimidating but our documentation is there to help (and so is our incredible support team).
Users wish to lock their sites during the migration to avoid having to deal with any user changes, during, or post migration.
Having a feature that would extract all the source site permissions (I'm thinking PMR), strip it and leave it read-only for everyone, and then allow to use the extracted permissions to re-apply them at the destination (or source if they wish to), could be very useful for a good number of users.32 votes
