  1. Migrate from/to Project Web Servers

    As PWS is a SharePoint based entity, Ori is wondering whether it would be possible for Sharegate to support migrations of those types of environments.

  4. Pre-check Option when Using Import & Copy with an Excel Document

    When using Export Metadata and the import option, there's no way you can run a pre-check.

    Not only does some users wish to run a pre-check to validate the data they're migrating, but this could also validate the integrity of the Excel document they modified for the migration.

    Can you tell us more on what you are trying to do in terms of “Forms” migration ?

    Note: We are currently looking into Microsoft Forms Web Part migration in Office 365.

    LP Lavoie responded

    Because Project is backed by SharePoint for document storage, you could possibly migrate that part. But specific support for the entire workload is unfortunately not currently on the radar.

  8. Be able to copy all the members for SP groups to another one.

    Right now the only thing we're able to do is to either add a permission level to a SP group or add members. It would be nice to be able to copy the users from one to another

  9. Copy Views

    To have the ability to copy only the views from a list to another would be a great addition to ShareGate Desktop.

  10. Use Azure Blob Storage as a source

    I have a bunch of files (775GB approx.) in Azure Blob Storage and am wondering whether there is any capability for Sharegate to do the move from the Azure Blob Storage to SharePoint Online?

  11. Correct links within office files

    Some users might have Excel or other office documents with links within them that rely on the SharePoint environment where they are located. Sharegate doesn't currently modify these links to the new environment, and this can cause some integrity issues.

  13. Set Page Layouts via PowerShell

    It would be good to set Page Layouts via PowerShell per content type.

  14. Migration of Multiple OneDrives at Once

    Even though it is possible in PowerShell, having the ability to migrate multiple OneDrives at once in the UI would be very useful.

  15. 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.

  16. Copy list items without attachments

    I have not found the option to copy list items without the attached documents. It would be a useful feature.
    Sometimes, after migrating, we need to redo an incremental migration only for updates on the metadata fields, it would be a lot faster in case attachments were not copied again...

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

    This would require quite some development effort from our team and we prefer to put this effort on a better support of the modern workplace.

    Thank you for your suggestion.

  18. Migrate Nintex Running Workflows

    Sharegate currently can't migrate Running Nintex Workflows. However, we can do so manually in SharePoint.

    It would be great if Sharegate could preserve statuses during a SP migration.

  20. Improve file share analysis

    Hi, can you confirm whether it's possible to add additional columns that pick up existing metadata when using the "Migration - Plan - Source Analysis - File Share" report. In additional to the default columns I'd like to find out when a document was last created and last modified from a File Share. Is this possible? Also can you confirm whether ShareGate can analyse file content to identify sensitive content before migration. Thank you.
