    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.

  4. 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

  7. Export the PMR to PDF

    It would be useful to be able to export the permissions matrix report as a PDF file, as well as a spreadsheet.

    The hierarchical view on the screen is useful to some to wrap their brains around the permissions.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Copy user permissions in Bulk

    Our company is doing Active Directory migrations now. All the users will get new accounts. This is for thousands of employees. Currently we are using ShareGate to copy user permissions one by one.

    Is there a way we could do it in bulk? We have the lists in Excel.

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  13. 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?

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Option to apply "restore inheritance" to sub-folders

    The problem I have is that this particular library has multiple folders and each with many more child folders.

    It would be good to have the option to apply to sub-folders

  17. Quick Select multiple users for PMR

    You can select specific users to run the PMR on, but you have to search each user one by one. If you want to scope down the PMR to a specific department of 40 users, you have to manually add those users by hand and it takes a long time.

  18. Hub Site Reporting

    It be really great to run reports such as Permissions and everything else against a Hubsite and all associated sites. There are many groups people create that I don't care to know permissions for but I need to do reports for anything associated with our hubsite.

  19. Display Site Collections Admins in the Permissions Matrix

    I've discovered that the Permissions Matrix report is not returning the members of the site collection administrators group. Many companies have had a hodge podge of administrators over the years and the site collection administrators group is often cluttered with users who should not have permission. I have written a Powershell script to fetch the members of this group, as well as the primary and seondary owners of each site collection. I think these values are a glaring omission in the permissions matrix. I would like to see these users side by side with site owners and not have to…

  20. Copy User Permissions Options

    It would be great if when you Copy a users permissions that in the "Results" page there was the ability to have options. i.e. I copy a users permisisons for an entire farm, but want to remove permissions from 1 or 2 groups.
