  4. Bulk Edit Metadata (on a site, from the term store)

    It would be useful to have a report to get all metadata for a whole site, but thinking further, If the Bulk Edit Metadata would work on a site level, this would allow more flexibility with the destination paths and general management of a full site and would become an easy method to get full metadata exports.

  5. Replace/Map user across environment without doing a migration

    I see that I can map users during a migration process to change, but is there any way I can update just the user? Like, replace my name all over their site collection with a different user in an easy way with this tool?

  6. Find and replace values in bulk edit and content migration

    It would be nice to have a "Find and replace" behavior in the custom template of content migration and bulk edit. Right we can use the mapped values, use a custom values, prompt values, create a default one or ignore the property. Would be nice if Sharegate could find specific values and replace it

  7. Bulk edit metadata without affecting version number

    We would like to bulk update the metadata of a library. However, we would like to keep the current version number of the documents, so it cannot be increased when we use ShareGate to bulk update the metadata.

  10. Check in files with another account

    I log on to the software my my personal account, but it would be nice to be able to do the check in as a system account like you can do for a migration/copy.

  12. Suspend alerts for bulk metadata updates

    Please add an option when making bulk metadata updates to suspend alerts. When changing content types on any library, we often have several (sometimes 100s) of people subscribed to get alerts. In the past, we've used a PowerShell script to suspend alerts, but sometimes we forget. Adding this as an option would be a lifesaver!

  15. Copy metadata from a library to a list

    Very disappointed this is not possible, I now have to write a custom script to do this very straightforward operation.

  16. Powershell Export-Document Cmdlet

    This would be great for manipulating documents outside of Sharepoint without losing any metadata. Export-Document should also have the ability to provide the metadata in a separate spreadsheet (like when downloading files from Explorer). This can then be used as a template when later using Import-Document on the processed document.
