  3. Support for incremental Teams copy via PowerShell

    Is it possible to add incremental support to the Copy-Team cmdlet in ShareGate PowerShell. The initial copy is supported, allowing bulk migrations using e.g. CSV-input, but performing incremental migrations currently requires the UI where each incremental needs to be started separately.

  9. Add a warning that workflows can be triggered during a Copy Content

    Item level migration with workflow triggers the workflow which is not expected. There should be warning at least.

  13. ShareGate Desktop Certification in Migration

    Are there any Certifications available for ShareGate which can be show cased in Resume to get confidence in Migration Activities?
    I see many products have their own certification like Nintex.
    It would be good to launch certain certifications for this product as well, so companies can get to know migration skill.

  15. Language detection by product

    The source is in Dutch, the destination is English. “documenten -> Documents”. My question is why aren’t languages detected by the product?

  16. Allow PowerShell manipulation of the Metadata section of the Copy Options

    the New-PropertyTemplate cmdlet doesn't offer to affect the "Metadata" section of Copy Options during PowerShell migrations. Having the option to set a column to "Set Mapped Value or Default" through the script would allow us to have more control over a PowerShell migration

  18. Quick Switch Between Copy Structure and Content

    A simple quick switch option between content and structure copy for the same source and destination sites without reconnecting and login in again. Going from structure to content would only ask for the specific source and destination (lib or list etc)

  19. Link ShareGate Desktop with Azure Storage Accounts/Azure Blob Storage

    Is there a possibility that we can link ShareGate with Azure Blob or Azure Storage accounts? Having direct access to migrate and move data to Blob storage would save a large amount of time since we wouldn't have to wait for large amounts of data to download, and then spend more time waiting for it to upload via their Storage Explorer application.

  20. Include the option to choose the site title and URL when merging sites

    When merging two sites with Copy Structure and Content, ShareGate Desktop defaults to the destination name and URL without another choice.

    It would be good to add the option to choose between the source and destination names, or even add a new one.
