  1. Progress Indicator of Pre-check & Migration

    Display more details while operation is running and as summary on completion:
    - Elapsed time
    - Breakdown by sites, lists/librairies, files, items instead of just "items" and "objects" count
    - Possibility to drill down progress breakdown by site, by list
    - Size of processed data (+ total if possible)
    - Inbound / Outbound network speeds
    - Remaining time (if possible)
    - Time / size of Azure upload jobs
    - etc.

    For Migrations in PowerShell, add -vebose like cmdlet to allow users to see the progress of the migration instead of waiting for the migration to finish/script execution to end.

    Thanks for taking the time to post this idea. We looked at it with the team and for now have decided that it’s not something we will be working on short term.

    We’ll keep looking at the requests and update if we anything changes

  4. Powershell Automatic Script Based on UI Parameters

    It would be awesome if you had a function in the UI that allowed me to set up a migration, and then generate the corresponding PowerShell (save me the time of figuring how to encode all of my options).

    This is not in our plan as this would be a massive amount of work. We also fear that the results would be supbar compared to an hand-crafted script.

    We understand that PowerShell can be intimidating but our documentation is there to help (and so is our incredible support team).

    Though we’ve had support for Exchange Public Folders in the past, we decided to remove it and not support it with our tool.

    The intricacies of Exchange and especially Public Folders migration can be quite complicated. We did not feel that we were bringing a good experience to our customers.

    Though one should never say never, so we’ll keep you posted if there is an update. Thanks for taking the time!

    Google sites as a source is not on our roadmap. Our current focus is Office 365 management and security.

    If you have any other questions, just let me know and I’ll be happy to help.

  9. 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

  10. 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.
