  1. Event counts (views, deletion, etc.) - Usage reporting

    -show number of views to a site, or a document.
    -show number of visits and of unique visitors.
    -show trending content.
    -show number of other audited events.
    -show most active users.
    -Run it on the entire farm and show stats by sites.

    The goal is to monitor internally the user's experience with SharePoint.

      Love the idea! Sharegate wants to help you get more out of the tool, beyond migration to help you adopt your new Office 365 platform or next SharePoint.

      Usage and Analytics isn’t something easily accessible, otherwise we’d already have built it. However, it’s something definitely high on our radar and currently being researched by one of our Product Owners.

      If you have more details to share, please reach out to us we would love to hear more.

    • Run Audit report on subsite and other levels

      Audit report: We should be able to run reports based on sub-site, not just at the site collection level. Because this is a busy site, it can't handle all the views

      • Audit report - exclude users

        - exclude system accounts

        Good morning! I wonder if there is a way to have the Audit Reports have a checkbox to say "don't show system accounts" or "WE" can build them "ignore the search crawler account and the system account" as a checkbox so my results do'nt need to be filtered. I have a user who had permissions changed and I am looking for it. I want to find out which user / group moved it / changed it and I know it's not the search account or ME / system account. Just offering a sugestion! :)

              • Additional Fields in Audit Report

                It would be nice if audit reports included a couple of extra columns by default. For example, currently the location is identified which goes right down to the document name within a specific collection/site/library/folder/subfolder - but would be useful if 2 extra columns could be added - the site collection relating to the 'Location' entry, plus the subsite/subsubsite/subsubsubsite relating to the 'Location' entry.

                This would allow easier joining to the Inventory Report outputs in order to easily collate hits by relevant level(s) across our very large SharePoint Online estate

                • Audit Report- More information on the modification

                  -show name of deleted documents
                  -when the name of a column is changed, show the old name

                  The audit report is pretty good but it leaves off the item name that was modified. For instance a document is deleted and the report shows "Delete, Recycled All Versions, and the link to the library where the document existed". What is the name of the document? That is what I need to know not where it was deleted from but what the item that deleted is. This is the same for the rest of the information, it leaves off the detail you…

                          • ORphaned User reports at site/list/lib/file level

                            I got a question for you in related to Orphaned users.

                            Is there a way I can run a detail report against an Orphaned user using ShareGate or do you provide client side PowerShell script to run report? In particular, I want to have a report for the orphan user against sites/lists/document libraries/documents (modify by/created by/etc/)/list items/list lookup/features currently activated by/etc before I remove the Orphaned user from the source? Considering some legal requirements, I need this type of report for some cases.

                            • Add Audit options for the External Users.

                              We are trying to come up with a better plan for managing external users. When they last logged in or access SharePoint content would be very helpful.

                              • Audit Report - Last 30 Days instead of last month

                                Hello,

                                Instead of having an option under Period for 'Last 30 Days" maybe it should be last month as not all months have 30 days and it makes reporting on monthly stats a lot easier.

                                Thank you for your consideration.

                                Mohit Gogia

                                  • Estimation time for running an audit report

                                    Audit reports take forever to run. There is also no indication as to how long it will take to complete. I needed a report for a meeting. I thought 8 hours before the meeting was sufficient, turns out it needed 13 hours and I was therefor "not prepared" for my meeting.

                                      Hi everyone!

                                      Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback via Sharegate’s Uservoice. Unfortunately, the suggestion provided is not in the current roadmap and has therefore been declined. Although the current status of this suggestion is under “decline”, it has not been deleted from our feedback service. Other users will continue to have the chance to vote for this suggestion.

                                    • Running audit reports without site collection admins rights.

                                      Our content managers only an elevated “Designer” permission. Is there a way that we can allow them the ability to run audit reports without assigning them as site collection admins?
