    • Rename Tasks

      File migration jobs have a default name that cannot be changed. This creates lots of jobs with (near) identical names making it nearly impossible to determine which job is which task.

      Make that option available in the UI and for Powershell jobs

        We have started working on this feature. We will soon allow you to rename your migration tasks once they are launched. This should make it easier for you to find what you are really looking for.

        We will keep you updated once it’s done.

      • Add a Search option for Migration Reports and All tasks

        Be able to search:
        - migration reports by destination sites for example.
        - migration reports by session ID
        - actions by type
        - in list of previous migrations
        - in list of All Tasks

        • Ability to Filter the Details Column (Errors/Completed/Success)

          The Details field should be more granular. We should be able to see Success, Warnings, and Errors as separate columns. That would allow us to determine tolerances for acceptable migration issues and filter tasks to identify migrations which did or didn’t meet our expectations.

          - Maybe separate columns for Success, Warnings, and Errors.

              - To be able to export a list of all the tasks to be able to monitor the activity from Sharegate.
              - Is there a way that we could see all team member’s tasks and scheduled reports?

              • Automatic Export of Scheduled Tasks

                I have a few tasks on a weekly schedule. I thought it would be great if a completed task could be automatically exported to a SharePoint library for end-users to see and work with. Now I’m the only one in the company of 2000 employees that can run sharegate. I won’t be able to run tasks on demand. It has to be some automated functionality.

                • Ability to Run a Scheduled Task Again

                  I have an audit report that I run weekly for a site collection and it times out from time to time. Is there a way to "retry now" to run the report in the All Tasks, Tasks window. There is Refresh, Add, export, etc. is there one that can be set, or when you open it "failed, want to retry now?" Thank you.

                  • Make Errors and Warnings Clickable

                    Hello, It would be nice to have Errors and Warnings clickable when looking at the migration task instead of having to manually create a filter. Thanks.

                    • Show list of Success on Pre-Check report

                      I'd like to have the ability to run a Pre-Check migration report that will show not only the Warning and Errors, but the successes as well, just like an actual Migration report would.

                          • Add option to run scheduled tasks now

                            Had a report scheduled to run in 10 minutes but wanted to kick it off now. Had to edit the report to have it run a minute after my computer clock was showing. Should have an option to "run now" or a check box instead of trying to manipulate the timer. Thanks!

                            • Filter Jobs with Errors

                              I like that I can filter on date range etc. however it would be good to also be able to filter on if the job contained errors.

                                It would be small but important help to have possibility to enable auto refresh.

                                When enabled I should be asked in which interval the refresh should run (1, 3, 5, 10 minutes).

                                • Limit number of tasks retained

                                  In a migration there may be many days of incrementals being run and the tasks add up pretty quickly. It would be helpful if the number of retained tasks or the number of days to retain tasks could be included in the settings. In addition, it would be helpful to include a way to bulk delete tasks (more than 50 at a time).

                                  • give insightful info for path too long error message

                                    I was wondering when we get this message: “The specified item name is too long. The server relative path of the item cannot exceed the limit of 260 characters.” Would it be very hard to change ShareGate so that the message would immediately give an indication as by how many characters the item name should be shortened?

                                      • Export Migration Errors

                                        When copying data from fileshares into SharePoint, it would be great if we could pick a location for all the 'Errors' to be stored. Perhaps an 'Error Export Location', where all blocked files, shortcuts could be saved whilst the other files are being migrated into SharePoint. It would be so much easier than having to deal with errors accross various folders in a fileshare individually

                                          It would be helpful to view/extract more than the 500 item limit in the Tasks section. We're often performing migrations that far exceed this number in one "session" and error checking would be simpler if we could determine the amount of items to extract at once.
