  2. Set mapped value or ignore

    We have "set mapped value or default". That's fine but I wish we also had "set mapped value or ignore".

    So, it would try to find a match first and then ignore if nothing matches.

    This would be nice for scenarios where I'm migrating content and certain metadata is "nice to have" but not essential.
    Let's say I’m running a content migration and 70% of the content is successful but 30% fails because a value is missing at destination. To migrate the remaining 30%, I must then go back and change the mapping to “ignore”.

    I know there are workarounds,…

  4. Mapping property values

    I'd like to be able to map individual property values. Currently we have a large number of previous document versions with outdated values that are not valid in the new system and need a more finely tuned solution than just having the same default value for every instance

  5. Migrate SharePoint calendar to Office 365 Group calendar

    A standard SharePoint calendar, on-premise or else, could be used as an Office 365 Group Calendar. Some users might wish to migrate their old team site calendar as such.

  14. Disable Workflows when Copying or Importing Content

    When using the copy content option to do an incremental migration on a library, the approval workflow on this library was started for all items in the library. Is this expected behavior? If yes, this information should really be provided as I was unable to find anything on your site referencing this or what to do to prevent it from happening. This can’t be something we would want to happen. It had quite a big impact on completing a migration since it created a huge problem I had to clean up.

  17. custom views in document sets

    In ShareGate Desktop, custom views selected at the list level are applied within documents sets as well. I would like the same behavior as in SharePoint that no longer applies the view when opening a document set to display all items within it.

  19. Cutover Process after Copy

    Ability to set source environment read-only, setup URL redirection and perform final delta copy in once simple cutover process. This would be helpful for a single switch migration.

    Example of Process

    1. Perform initial copy from source to target
    2. Test
    3. Resolve any/all issues
    4. Cutover from source to target
      • Source SharePoint environment is set as Read-Only or Inaccessible.
      • URL Rewrite (redirection) is setup in IIS on source environment so all links redirect to target site.
      • A final delta copy is run to update changes.
