  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  4. Workflow report - indicate which list uses it

    This report would be even better if a column was provided that indicated WHICH LIST had the workflow. When a site has scores of lists, it's a real hassle tracking down the offending list.

  5. Users following

    It would be nice if there was a report that captured the Social aspect of a site collection and all subsites. For example, list all the subsites in a site collection and the user's following that subsite. I know you can get this information with Powershell.

  6. Ability to report on empty/null values

    When I'm editing the options in a custom report, I noticed that under Filters I'm unable to look for an empty/null value. I'd like to be able to do something like Where Owners contains "", but the "Add User or Group" field requires something to be valid. Even better would be an enhancement to add "is empty" and "is not empty" choices to the Operator dropdown.

  7. Ability to Merge Reports Together

    When your reporting job is too large and takes a long time to process (or even sometimes fails), you're encouraged to reduce your scope. For instance, run a PMR on your subsites instead of your whole site collection at once. However, if you want a global portrait of your site collection's permissions, it gets tricky.

    It would be interesting to then have the ability to merge the individual reports together directly in Sharegate (not manually in Excel).

  10. Report on which sites have external users with a Yes/No column or filter

    see which sites are externally shared and which ones are not (without filtering by user type). Maybe an ability to include another column that says “externally shared” with a yes or no.

  13. Allow User Profile information in reports

    Within different reports, we would need to see more information from the user's profile, like "Job Title", "Department" and more. Same with SharePoint Groups where the PMR should give out the description of the SharePoint Group

  14. Add a external access since column

    Is it possible to include a from date in external users reports?
    We would use a from date to start a renewal process. Or are there other ways to achieve this?

  16. Need to create a report using the following.

    We are switching from using Content types to using labels for retention. I need to identify where under a document library the setting of Apply label to items in this list or library and the checkbox is unchecked for Apply label to existing items in the library. Thanks This is how Microsoft is doing teams retention so we are planning on switching SharePoint to do the same.

  18. Site Report - Site Size Only Column

    Site Report to offer an additional Column to present just the standalone Site Size (excluding nested Subsites).

    This would greatly assist to quickly and accurately determine a target Site / Subsite only size in very large nested Site scenarios to help support content restructuring (promote to site collection etc...) and / or migration decision activities.

  20. Mass-configure/run permission reports across all sites

    I have two very common use-cases for my proposed idea. I'll first give the two examples;

    Example 1: We hold "Site Owners" as being responsible for ensuring their permissions are up to date. We like to enforce permission audits once-quarterly.

    Example 2: We acquired a competitor and are migrating their SharePoint environment into ours. It would be nice to provide all their Site Owners (typically 50+ individuals) with a permissions matrix that is relevant to them without having to manually manipulate, or rely on them to filter/sort a master permissions report.

    The proposed feature: Please consider adding checkbox/radio button option…
