    Definitely something to look into! Thanks for taking the time to share.

    The PMR or “Permissions Matrix Report” is one of our popular reports, it makes sense to want to leverage it for more than just a report.

    We’ll be evaluating what the best way to present this information shortly with our teams. As soon as I know more, will keep you posted with an update.
    Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback again.

  3. Modify PMR View

    - To be able to add/remove columns like "Site Description" or "User's Job Title"
    - To add properties like ID or Item URL
    - To include a "parent" column in the Excel Report for the PMR to show hierarchical structure

  6. Query AD groups (security groups)

    Be able to know what permissions the users from a specific AD group have access to.

  7. Have the groups expended while the Permission Matrix Report is running

    Currently, you need to expand the groups as a second operation after the Permission Matrix Report is completed. In some cases, it takes as long as the report itself. I'd like the ability to toggle it by default when running the operation.

  8. Being able to search/select multiple users at once in the search tool

    Ability to
    - Perform a bulk check on a group of users' permissions.
    - use an excel or CSV list of users, to feed them to the "Specific Users and Groups" Option in the Permissions Matrix Report.

  9. Permissions matrix report showing files that inherit permissions

    Would like to really see a complete overview of all the files present in the library including those that inherit permissions.

  10. Site-Level External Sharing Management

    What would be lovely would be some ability to proactively manage sharing at the site level (not site collection), meaning I'd like site owners to have to request approval to share externally.

  11. Customized the Permission Matrix Report

    What to acheive:
    For the business users, we want to hide some columns and have some filtering (e.g. "Permission Levels" is not "Contribute").

    Business Case:
    We need to run this report quarterly for the business users. And to them, a lot of the fields don’t make any sense and can cause confusion. Therefore, we are hoping if there is an option to set the filters/hide columns.

    Can we do this through the Sharegate Shell?

  12. export and import permissions from permissions matrix report

    Some admins like to run the PMR often to keep a backup of their permissions handy in case they need to revert some. In some cases, it can be thousands of permissions for a user they need to restore and it would be a good feature, to be able to use an export of the permissions to restore them.

  13. See users who have permission through a sharing link

    A user has access to a specific library folder that was granted by a Sharing link which requires they be internal users. SharePoint interface then shows me the associated users and with manage links hyperlink to administer. However these users do not show up in the Matrix report. My expectation would be to see the user in the matrix report since they appear in SharePoint.

  14. Display Anonymous Guests Links in the Reporting Tool

    I would like to have the anonymous links of documents and files being shared. Right now, I don't know to which address the documents are being shared. I don't want to disable the sharing as some of them are required.

  15. Add option to run multiple reports with a CSV file

    Add an option to run multiple reports based on parameter like URL, with a CSV file. Users would like the ability to report (Permissions Matrix Report in example) on multiple sites or drives, but it can be difficult to specify which ones and some users might want to feed a CSV file with URLs to do so

  17. Permissions matrix not reporting link-based permissions granting

    Used content search to find where a user had access to some content in a OneDrive. It successfully identified a file shared with a user via link. Sharegate completely misses this content.

    The document was shared via a sharing link in ODfB
    The user had accessed the document via the link. (Internal user)
    The UI in ODfB shows the user as having been given access via the sharing link
    The content search capability in the protection center shows they have access to the document
    Sharegate, however, does not show access to the document when you doing a permission matrix for…

  18. Resize Columns of the PMR

    I don't want to / need to export, however I want to expand the Given Through permisisons Matrix Reports results as group xxxxxx is a bit too long for the narrow given through column, if I could expand a little to the right, I could see the name w/o having to export. I'd like to drag to the right or left a bit, or click all to expand all, etc.

  19. Customize the Excel Exporting of PMR

    User would like to be able to have options when exporting the PMR, such as splitting the file into smaller ones.
    Per example, for a farm with thousands of site collections, when the permissions are being shown expanded, the report is too large for Excel to handle. And it would be very time consuming to try and split the report in groups manually before running it because you would need to select each site one by one.

  20. Export Permissions Matrix Report as .csv

    For large organizations the result of the PMR can exceed the row limit of Excel. Exporting as .csv would prevent that.
