  1. Visual site map of all site collections

    would be really good if your product created a site map of all site collections and sub sites across the farm in a visual diagram that could be saved as an image or pdf

  2. Multi-user selection in the search section for features "add/remove/copy permissions"

    Remove all users in a site collection without going to each sub-site and removing them from security groups.

    I have over 700 users that need to be removed in multiple sub-sites and various security groups. It would take me forever to remove them if I have to add their names individually.

    Being able to select many users at a time in the search section for features like “remove permissions”. For now you have to search for one user, add it, search for another one, add it, etc.

  5. Filter O365 Group Sites from Other Site Collection

    All of the groups SC now appear along my site collections, which make it a whole mess to actually get a Permissions Matrix Report of what I need. Could you divide the actual Site Collections from the Group Sites? As in Microsoft Admin Center?

  6. Add Team Site filters from the Explorer

    You have done a good job splitting out O365 Groups, OneDrive, and Web Apps in the gui, but it would be great if you could also separate out "TEAMS" type sites in the filters.
    It is extremely tedious to have to deselect all of the possible Team Site - site collections when trying to run reports for just Sharepoint sites.

  7. Add option to generate the metadata as CSV using Download

    Sometimes there could be issues with the number of items and/or the column width in Excel when exporting the metadata along your content with the Download option in Explorer. Having an option to export content as a CSV could help work around these limitations for some users.

  9. Preserve selection of lower level items in Explorer

    When using the Explorer, it would be great if the selection of lower level site objects such as OneDrive libraries was preserved when moving back up a level. At this time, if i select libraries in a OneDrive then navigate back to the web app, my previous selections are lost.

  10. Sort by Last Modified Explorer

    I'd like to be able to sort by Last Modified in the Explorer view. This is useful when creating sites in bulk and you need to verify that they've been created; for example, when using Request-SPOPersonalSite/New-PnPPersonalSite.

  11. Add List/Library Level in Search

    I was just trying to find Bulk Edit, now under Exploer and I have a site collection, a subsite, another subsite, and another, and then I have a list under that. I don't know if I can just paste in the list and location and say "I want to bulk edit that!?"

  12. Sort and Filter User Interface in Explorer

    There are opportunities to simplify the UI (and provide a more familiar SharePoint-like experience), without sacrificing Sharegate's design.

    In Explorer, object "Display By" options are provided in the column heading. [BTW: In our release, the only options are "Title" and "URL". It would be nice to have a third option that would allow users to sort by platform (i.e. Tenants, Farms, so on).]

    Filtering, on the other hand, is provided by button controls (e.g. "Office 365 Tenant", "Web Application", etc.)

    The interface could be even better if the list of connections had column headings that sort AND filter, rather than…

  13. Provide a 'disconnect' for multiple items within the Explorers' bulk action panel

    Once I have imported multiple connections into the Explorer I would like to be able to disconnect a certain count of them.
    Instead removing all connections and re-adding the ones I want to proceed further again is the only option so far.
    Neither the context menu for a single connection nor the action panel for bulk operation or any cmdlet offers this.

  14. Add a connection popup in the Explorer when the connection expires

    Currently, if the connection token or cookie expires in the Explorer, the connected site will return an error in the red band. Instead, it should prompt a popup to redo the connection when you click on the error.

  18. Show all results in ShareGate people picker fields

    When searching for users and groups in ShareGate's people picker, there's a hard limit (25) on the number of results that can be shown in the scrolling box. In the case where there's an AD object named "XYZ" and then 25 AD objects named "XYZW", I can never find/select "XYZ" as the other 25 show up first.

  19. Hiding the Delete Permanently button when all site collections are checked

    We were thinking about giving access to Sharegate to our Service Desk personnel so they could manage our OneDrive requests when we noticed the delete permanently button.

    The crazy thing is that even when we click on the checkbox to select all 4, 758 site collections in our tenant, (46tb worth of data), that delete permanently link is still active.

    Wow, that's something to give an Admin grey hairs. There's no way we are giving access to the Service Desk type personnel to Sharegate with that ability. Yes with it hidden they could still delete sites individually, but they couldn't…

  20. Export Structure

    Similar to the download content option, it would be nice to have an option to download/export a site's structure. I’m trying to bring over everything EXCEPT document library content to a remote lab for testing. Most important being the Content Types, Columns, Document Libraries and settings. I need to test some solutions against the sites without testing against production since the company doesn't have a dev site.
