  2. Migrate workflow with CAML in query list

    Workflow having Query List action configured with CAML Builder does not get migrated. Since entire workflow fails to migrate, we request Sharegate to look into either of below options:
    1. Replace query list with CAML as placeholder
    2. Enable Sharegate to migrate workflow with CAML in query list

  3. Manage Recent Migration Connections

    When running multiple migrations, the connections are preserved in the migration UI. Some users might want to remove or organize them.

    A favorites section could also be very nice for users that do a lot of repeat migrations

    It’s planned to be able to migrated Pages with Webpart connections on the future? We get a lot of Warning saying:

    Warning for version 13.0: This page contains WebParts that are connected. Connections are not supported by Sharegate and will need to be recreated manually.

  6. Export-report improvement

    the CSV format is very useful for further parsing in PowerShell or importing in a SQL database for further analysis or reporting purposes.

    However, when errors are recorded for a record in the report, the error message may contain several line breaks, which makes import into a database cumbersome.
    Is there a way to avoid the line breaks during the export?

  7. Same Rule as the Filer When Migrating Folders (Time Range)

    Right now, Sharegate is migrating the entire folder structure with a lot of empty folders regardless of if there are active files (modified in the past 18 months) within them. I would like Sharegate to apply the same rule on the folders when none of the file under it are migrated. In those cases, the folder should be ignored.

  9. Merge option not persisted when running a pre-check

    In the last couple of site copies I have done, if I choose the Merge option then run a check then go back to check the options again before I run it for real, the Merge option is no longer set.

  11. 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,…

    After thinking about it, we have decided to decline this suggestion.

    This is not currently on our road map since the effort required by our development team would be really high and we prefer to put this effort on other thing, like a better support of the modern workplace.

    Thank you for your suggestion

  14. Search Option in the Copy UI

    -With a lot of sites in my tenant it would be really helpfull, that when I’m in the select source/destination was able to search for a site.

    -Would be nice if you could find something in either the 'from' or 'to' display box by searching or even a search string (N25*) or something similar.

  16. Migrate Tasks from a Task List for Archival Purposes

    I would like to migrate the tasks in a task list for archival purposes. I know they cannot be re-associated to the workflow, but can they be migrated to save the history of the objects?

  17. Paste the Path to Find the File Share Location

    -I should not have to browse the file share. It's too big. I should be able to copy the path into the browse window and hit enter
    -I would also like the ability to enter a UNC path in the file share

    Declined  ·  LP Lavoie responded

    Sharegace can now report on (find) and force check-in of checked-out documents, including “never checked-in” documents. We consider it is better practice to clean up prior to a migration, therefore we will not work on further support for migration of checked-out documents.

  19. 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
