  1. Hub site and their associated sites report

    Is there a report, or can a report be created, to surface hub sites and their associated sites? We are introducing Hub sites & their associated sites as the intranet. Such a report would be of great value.

  2. Orphaned users: Distinguish disabled vs deleted user accounts

    Please update your orphaned user report to distinguish disabled vs deleted user accounts. Metalogix ControlPoint can do this and it's very handy in an environment like ours where we often disable users if they are out on extended leave.

  3. Restart cancelled Report from Tasks

    A suggestion:

    I was running a report and needed to go. So I cancelled the report while it was not done.

    When I was at home I started a new report with the same parameters.

    I could not resume the other one I cancelled earlier.

    When I started the new report it was very fast with the first data because, I think, it was cashed.

    Why not use this and make it possible for users to resume a report that was canceled earlier?

  4. Filtering Lists using External Data type

    It would be nice to have a reporting feature so that we can filter lists that are using "External Data" column type.

  5. Report on Sensitive Data

    The info security team here wants a weekly report of user permissions for sites that have sensitive content in them. Right now, In the tool I currently use to produce it, it’s pretty easy to do a one-time configuration that will send a weekly report to a SharePoint document library and email address of my choice. I “set it and forget it”. I don’t ever have to think about it again and the report will get sent to where I’ve configured it on a weekly basis. I couldn’t find this capability in my Desktop ShareGate. If it does have this…

  6. Reporting on Content Types

    It would be helpful for migrations to be able to export spreadsheet of related entities based on the relationships between Sharepoint objects. For instance, have a worksheet show the content types (you already support reporting) and a 2nd worksheet show site columns (also supported) and a third worksheet mapping membership, which site columns are in which content types. This Excel file would be instrumental in helping us identify similar content types and re-mapping similar/duplicate content types whilst planning our hybrid migration and content type publishing.

    I can export both site columns and site content types but I don't really have…

  7. Reports fail when one data point fails

    Line items should not fail when only a single data point fails. That is, a report should be robust enough to generate whatever details it can for each line item and provide an error at the cell level rather than the whole row. For example, I ran a Site Report and due to some corruption in the configuration of the site collection it threw a lot of errors stating "Unable to recover storage metrics for address '...'. It may no longer exist or you may not have the necessary permissions." However, when I run a custom report taking our the…

  10. View Report

    Would like to create a report to review if certain views are missing on Document Libraries. We have certain views on certain libraries and we need to be sure that they are created as the site owners create new document libraries.

  11. Have a report of all external users in AAD but who don't have access to anything

    Over the years, people in the organisation share a lot of content with external users, which adds a lot of external users to the active directory. Once the content is deleted or the sharing with the external user is removed, the external user is still in the active directory even though they don't have access to anything. It would be nice to be able to clean this.

  19. Show the Modified and Created dates of file versions in the Document Report

    The Document Report in the Reporting section only show the Last Modified Date and Created Date for the latest version of each document. I would like to see this information for each version of the file.

  20. dependencies reporting

    I’m wondering if there’s a way to check dependencies (i.e. other referenced lists/items) before migrating, so that I would be able to give end users a list of everything being copied to a new location?
