  1. Start migrations from the Explorer

    Is it really so that I cannot easily navigate to site via Explorer, and then start Copy from there, but I need to separately go to Copy, log in, do MFA, etc. each and every time?

    We should be able to initiate a copy from the Explorer

  2. A switch to remove the mandatory fields from list or libraries during the migration

    A switch that would remove the mandatory fields for the time of the migration and then put them back to ease the migration

  4. Connect to All Sites you have access to

    I know there is a way to connect to all Sites and One Drives if you are a Global or SP Admin but, I am currently do not have those permissions. It would be nice if I could connect to all site collections that I'm a Site Collection admin of without having SP Admin rights. Connecting and maintaining connections to each site collection individually is not feasible.

  7. Lookup field not intact

    Instead of providing multiple workaround to retain look up column
    just have the login to do it in automated way.
    Other migration tools do it by first migration without lookup column and in second iteration wih lookup colunns.

  9. Automatic fallback to normal mode.

    You could have a switch that automatically turns on insane vs normal when the item count is less then 300 or 500 or something. But it seems to get amazing results if you do normal for low item count and insane for larger item counts.

  11. Ability to "roll up" to inherit security on files/folders in document library

    When migrating a lot of files and folders from the network file share into SharePoint document libraries, if you apply the "security" from the original network file source, you will often end up blowing past the maximum number of individual items that can be secured in a document library.

    We need the ability when this happens to "roll up" the security to a container level above where the individual files are. As in, if I have 25 files in a folder that are secured the same way with individual security, it would be nice to remove the security on the…

  14. Option to not run Nintex workflows during migration

    Regarding the Nintex migration, your tool works great. It migrates the lists and workflows well. The only reason I brought it up is because at my previous employer I had to run support and ultimately oversaw every Nintex form/workflow migration. There were only two significant “oops” moments from developers before I took charge. It’s totally a user error, but one I thought you might want to be aware of for UX purposes.

    Instance 1:

    Our developer forgot to remove the test data from one of our test environments before migrating to production. Therefore, when the content was copied it fired…

  15. Multilingual User Interface

    Since we believe that many people are using MUI interfaces we really would appreciate if ShareGate could handle that. It is really a lot of work to do manually – you have to rename every single item

  20. ContentType Structure Copy Removed Column Mishandling

    It looks like when an entire content type hierarchy is copied to a destination, either the content type hierarchy is not copied in inheritance order, it's pushing an update downward, or it's ignoring columns that have been removed. ContentTypes allow for the removal of inherited columns but their removal is not being respected in the destination.
    Feedback sent from the Copy structure view.
