  1. Archiving of Tasks

    Having the ability to archive completed tasks rather than going through and exporting then deleting the tasks (which is time consuming)

  2. Better task names

    I'm doing some migrations and would really like to see exactly from which library/site/list that i'm migrating to and from.
    i don't find "Copy 1 item from Network-
    Voice.... to Network..." very useful. the name of the item would be much better.

  4. Filters for auto-export of migration reports

    Under migration options it, would be nice to define filter criteria for the export (same as when filtering a migration report in the UI).
    If running scheduled task, perhaps only reports containing errors and warnings are candidates for export to a library. This makes it possible to limit the amount of data in the reports library (number of items and file size)

  5. Find-CopySessions should also return Task Name

    We are automating migrations and using Copy-content command. However when operation is getting cancelled, Copy-content does not return session id. So we don't know when task is cancelled. So our custom tool does not know if task is completed or not. We plan to create tasks with specific naming convention and then check the status of that task using Find-CopySessions command.

  6. Show counts for all statuses when copying

    Hi Team, would love to see a count of all statuses when copying. It drives me nuts not seeing a count for Skipped / cancelled items.

  7. 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

  8. Changes to the Tasks screen

    Improve response time for your completed tasks. It can take MANY MINUTES For it to load. I delete teh sharegate desktp uses .... on disk, yet having 500MB is a bit, yet I can't keep deleting them over and over. Maybe allow me to save a few days or so. Can you cache the completed or happening tasks within the past few days. 99% of the time I want to know what I am working on TODAY or yesterday! Maybe reduce the items per page to like 5 or so instead of 50.

  9. Cache filters of the All tasks screen

    When I hit the back button PLEASE cache the filters for "your completed tasks" as it takes AGES To load. PLease, I clicked on the incorrect option and it is as if I started a new check.

  10. report on the completed tasks

    For example, I want to export to Excel or something all the tasks I have completed in the Sharegate tool. Not export the actions themselves. I'm looking for a report of what I have done.

  11. Define task name in Options

    The ability to rename existing tasks is a good thing. It would be much better if naming a task could be done proactively in the UI. I believe this can be done in PowerShell. However, since come tasks cannot be started via PowerShell (e.g. Permission Matrix Reports), this ability is limited.

    Being able to set a Task Name before starting a job, via the UI, would make it possible to organize tasks instead of having to manually open each task to determine what it was for prior to renaming it (see attached).

  13. Include SPOManagementShell authentication in Connect-Site as Browser authentication

    Include SPOManagementShell authentication in Connect-Site .Since Browser authentication does not work with Task scheduler when Run whether user is logged on or not is selected in Scheduler.

  14. For Copy Structure jobs, allow "Source List Name" as an available column in Tasks

    Currently it only shows the source site. Determining the source list(s) used requires opening each Task manually.

  15. Report Request: Migration Activities

    I would like to generate a report on actions in my task list using the details on the ShareGate Desktop Tasks page and use the high-level information for things like progress and status reports. I do not see an option in my app. If it does not exist, please consider creating one and/or the option to make one in the custom report’s options. If it does exist, please send a link that I can reference.

  17. Scheduled Tasks - be able to 'select all' or export for reference

    It would be fantastic if you'd allow for the selection of all items (drag to highlight) or export of the scheduled task list for informational purposes. We've had to delete our AppData a few times, and now have to reinstall, and it would be great if we could save the scheduled tasks as a reference for rebuilding.

    Thanks!

  18. Clean Orphaned User Enhancement # 6

    Here is a feature/enhancement that would be very beneficial to our very large/complex company:

    The ability to change the tasks view to show URL as opposed to the Site Name/Title - for example "Orphaned User Account on http://example.com/sites/example" instead of site title for reference purposes.

    Because when you have 300,000 site collections the site name/title are not descriptive enough to find again in the Tasks list.

  19. Clean Orphaned User Enhancement # 5

    Here is a feature/enhancement that would be very beneficial to our very large/complex company:

    It would be helpful to have some way of loading all the site collections so I don't have to use Explorer to get each one. We have upwards of 300,000 site collections, just in the one farm.

    Some SCAs have permissions to 50 SCs - event that small of a grouping is too time consuming to load one by one.

  20. Clean Orphaned User Enhancement # 4

    Here is a feature/enhancement that would be very beneficial to our very large/complex company:

    The ability to search for/remove an orphaned user/account within a web application, rather than one site collection at a time.

    For example, let's say a user was let go and we need to remove the user from all site collections - ASAP. Running reports individually is not feasible - too time consuming and not efficient.
