    With the latest release of ShareGate Desktop, it is now possible to schedule the migration through the UI.

    This should allow you to easily migrate at off-hours or at any time that is convenient for you. This also allows you, if need be, to schedule a recurring migration.

    The time, date and recurrence of a schedule migration can be modified through the Scheduled Tasks UI.

    We know this only covers the schedule part of this suggestion. If you want to vote on the planner part, please do so on this new suggestion we opened: https://feedback.sharegate.com/forums/912880/suggestions/38066314

  2. Break up Views and Forms Copy Structure option

    I just stumbled across this options-interface and thought I needed to migrate the views but NOT the InfoPath Forms. Yet I cannot separate them.

  3. Pre-Check in PowerShell

    Pow! It's Done.  ·  LP Lavoie responded

    Sharegate now fully supports migration to both Team sites connected to Groups and Communication sites.

    Currently this is achieved by toggling the site’s DenyAddAndCustomizePages setting, which requires Tenant administrator role. We are working with Microsoft to enable a way in O365 to support the features without the need for this setting.

  6. Specify URL and Title of site or list in a PowerShell migration

    Hello from Sharegate! We released Sharegate 7.1 last week and we are happy to let you know that you can now perform a Copy Structure to Office 365 and force the new experience on lists.

    Additionally, here is the list of supported Web Parts for the New Experience https://support.share-gate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004220574

    And as a complement, you can now create a new report on Lists and Libraries (Office 365 of course) with “List Experience” filter and column. From there, you can edit the “List Experience” in the properties displayed in the Quick Actions panel (in the report or directly in the explorer). The “List Experience” can be set to “Tenant default”, “New experience” or “Classic experience”.

    My friend Alexandra explains it all in detail with this blog article https://en.share-gate.com/blog/modern-experience-web-apps-and-navigation-improvement
    We hope you enjoy these new functionalities!

  10. Support Office 365 Labels During Migrations

    In a migration from on-premises to Office 365, we need to convert a records management functionality that handles document retention to date in Office 365 labels.

    With today’s release of ShareGate Desktop, Retention labels will be kept during the migration, ONLY for migrations on the same tenant. This should allow you to move elements around in your environments and ensure that they don’t lose information along the way.

    If you have any other suggestion, don’t hesitate to contact us.

    For the full content of the release, please see: https://support-desktop.sharegate.com/hc/en-us/articles/360025997452

    All special characters should now be properly handled in Sharegate.

    Note: Know that different platforms (2013, 2016, O365, file share, Google Drive, Box) support different special characters, so you’ll still have replacements in some cases.

    Good evening,

    Sharegate 5.17 is now available!! We now support files up to 10GB in size when you are migrating to SharePoint 2016 or Office 365 (can only be done in normal mode).

    Thanks a lot for helping us getting better!

    Nathalie

    There were some remaining issues on Microsoft’s side with long URLs (up to 400 chars) when using the migration API (Insane mode). They were finally fixed recently and we’ll be updating Sharegate in the next release (Sept. 5) to fully support all migration paths for long URLs up to 400 characters.

    Side note : Files above 2GB still cannot go through Insane mode. Again, this is a limitation in Office 365 and not in Sharegate. We’ll support it as soon as a fix is available.

  14. Support the migration of mega menus in SPO modern

    Since January 2019, there's a new element in the SPO modern environment called mega menus which is a re-skin of the site navigation. They are not currently being migrated on a 1:1 basis.

  17. Connect Using Different Credentials for Migrations

    Since version 7.2, I can't find any option to connect the destination with other account.
    I would like to know how do I perform a migration with Run as Account (our migration service account) just like the previous version.

  18. Rerun a migration from a migration report

    A very usefull featuere would be if I could go to a previous migration report and be able to go back to the migration steps and be able to rerun the migration by changing the parameters. It would be especially usefull to do in incremental update.
