  5. SharePoint and Fileshare Inventory Drill Down

    It would be neat if you could take the SharePoint inventory report and drill down into the individual stats :


    • Expand workflows since they do not show up in the errors that you can export

    • Be able to click on a summary like unused sites and see a list of all the unused sites

    • Expand checked out files, custom master pages, unsupported templates

    • Sort site collections by size, number of sites, workflows, etc.

  6. Site/Collection structure report

    Report that can show you the listed site assets for an entire subsite or collection.

    Basically, it would be like looking at the site contents for any selected targets. This would help people flatten there footprints, or consolidate material that's similar between sites. This would help with migration planning, unused content cleanup and help eliminate user created subs that have no content or activity.

  7. Include modified date in source analysis

    Please could you include the file modified date as a field in the inventory report (now source analysis).

    This would be extremely helpful in cases where you are planning to migrate content within a certain timeframe (e.g. last 6 months). I understand this feature is available in the actual migration but it would be useful in the report to gain a better understanding of the size of the data set.

    Thanks,

  8. File Share Source Analysis - Better control over bigger environments

    It would be great to have a way to run a summary of network data analyzed. Our environment is large and we are possibly dealing with over ~90TB of network data. The ability to generate summary reports under planning section would add great value to our purpose. We want to know how much data we are dealing with prior actual start of planned migration.

    Ability to run summary network data discovery – Summary file Share analysis
    a) User name

    b) total network data ( GB )

    c) Number of file

    d) Mapped network data path

    Ability to run same reports…

  9. Analyze for file paths too long in Fileshare


    • I thought ShareGate's 'Source analysis' was looking for character limits in the paths on the source side (file share), not on the target side (O365,SharePoint). For me, the name 'Source analysis' would actually imply that it inspects source side and that the logic behind this process is that if SG can read the source side, it is then ensured that the files can be deployed on the target location.

  10. Report on Customization of built-in content types

    Customization of built-in content types. I’ve seen this at a couple of clients. It would be great if this could be identified in advance during the analysis. Depending on the scenario, I address this by pushing the customizations out to the inheriting custom content types, or by creating an intermediate content type and changing the custom content type inheritance.

  12. Scan/Report on Long File Names

    The 255 character limit for file names can be ignored until migrating. This will result in errors and warning on the migration report. I want to flatten the folder structure or use metadata entirely but I have to know where the issue exists without manipulating a document inventory report with formulas "PATH=LEN".

  15. Add new rules to migration pre-check

    hello. i'm currenlty responsible for migrating over 460 sites from 2010 to 2013. I run a precheck to make sure that the migrartion is ready to go and yet when i migrate, i end up with all kinds of errors.
    It would be nice to know errors such as document names being too long, permissions not lining up to name a few errors that I've received even after running a precheck.
