  1. Review Auto-Assign as Site Collection Administrator Process

    Review the way Sharegate uses the auto-assign feature

    - Handle differently per type of site (OneDrive, Groups, Team sites)
    - Setting per tenant / farm / connection
    - Option to auto-remove after each operations
    - Handle special cases (eDiscovery sites, NO ACCESS or Read-only)

      Hello everyone,

      Since no decision has been made as to whether or not the process will be optimized I just want to mention that if you don’t want yourself to be added as an admin all the time, simply turn off the “Auto-Assign as Administrator” option in the settings menu of ShareGate Desktop. Also, note that you can always use the following procedure to remove yourself from the admins if it happens again: https://support-desktop.sharegate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000647528-Can-I-remove-myself-as-an-administrator-after-I-have-auto-assigned-myself-as-one-

      Thank you,

        • Shared tasks history

          The ability to see and interact with jobs that other licensed users have been working with. We have 5 admins and seeing what they’ve got going and interacting with those is an important need for us.

          • Allow licensing per user instead of per machine

            We use virtual desktops (VDI) and it seems that your licences attach themselves to computer names. As we use VDI terminal our computer names are never the same. The way that you currently track licences make using ShareGate very unattractive.

            We purchase many licensed software solutions and all except ShareGate run in a VDI environment without having the deactivate the licence every time you use it. Could the license model be changed?

              • Customize the access to only certain Sharegate features

                Possibility to provide a user an instance of Sharegate so that they can only run reports and not have access to functionality such as migration.

                    Hi!

                    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 “declined”, it has not been deleted from our feedback service. Other users will continue to have the chance to vote for this suggestion.

                  • LARGER Scroll bar!

                    Please, the scroll bar is EXTREMELY small on the Select Orphaned Users and on the CLean Orphaned Users. PLEASE make it MUCH wider! it seems like it is 3 pixels wide!

                      • Partner Portal - Sales History - get the customer license manager encrypted url

                        To provide partners to help customers with license issues, its nice to open the license manager of the customer from the Partner Portal.

                        In the Sales History its possible to view the license code of customers. But to see the usage of the license we need to ask the customer to provide us the license manager (encrypted) url to view there license manager.

                        Would it be possible to make a button/link in the Sales History so partners can access the License Manager of the customer?

                          • Make a Sharegate API to enable cloud or 3rd party solutions

                            An API available for partners and customers to build solutions, especially in Office 365, that allow them to move content and eventually structure to new location.

                            If Sharegate made an API, we could build our own custom actions or new App Parts with the SharePoint Framework, Azure Functions, etc. to provide value to end users on a day to day basis.

                              • Restrict licence management to a specific user

                                CJ Owens from inforeliance wishes that he could restrict a seated user's ability to manage (activate/deactivate) the licence's seats for himself and other users. It would be nice if a managing user could be determined.

                                • Add option to save as multiple files when row limit is reached with any Excel export

                                  When exporting a lot of metadata, some users hit the row limit with Excel and get an error. Some would like for Sharegate to be able to work around that and automatically create multiple files.

                                        Thanks for taking the time to post this idea. Because it’s possible to install Sharegate on a VM on a MAC, we have decided that it’s not something we will be working on short term.

                                        We’ll keep looking at the requests and update if we anything changes.

                                        Please move the "Your License expires in 23 days. _Renew Now!" to the right a bit please, as I remote desktop into it and in the ShareGate (white product) governance, it is "hidden" by the RDC (Remote Desktop Connection) tab. I see it on the Sharegate "Lite" or migration version. It shows up on the right and I "see" it.

                                        • Make the auto-update off by default

                                          When installing Sharegate and first launching the application, some users might face an auto-update and end up with the latest version.
                                          For some organisations, they might not want to allow the update if they need to approve the software.
                                          A solution would be to make the auto-update be turned off by default.
