  1. 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.

  2. 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)

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  11. More information in scheduled tasks

    Hello Sharegate team ! We are now migrating our fileshares to SPO with ShareGate which works great for us ! There is only one thing which is a little bit anoying. In scheduled tasks you cannot put in a name for the tasks or see what the task does. You have to open the options, which takes a lot of time, to see this. Is it possible to add a description field so you can see what task does what in the overview of scheduled tasks ?

    Thanks in advance !

    Best regards,

    Leonard Kreeft

  12. add more count to the main screen after migration

    Hello,
    I am using ShareGate heavily for most of our organization migration to SharePoint. Sometimes, we upload folders per each migration. The audit is critical, that means when we upload folder, we need to audit how many documents and folder created/uploaded to SharePoint.
    The current version of ShareGate doesn’t support that; I need to export to MS Excel and do the calculation there. It will be helpful if ShareGate team add these numbers, like the following:
    Total: 100
    Files: 80
    Folders: 20
    So, in this case, ShareGate gives me the numbers quickly without wasting more time for exporting to get…

  13. Export report with time range / PowerShell

    In PowerShell, export-report within a time range is based on the find-CopySessions.
    What would help on Find-CopySessions would be adding a Time component, not just dates (e.g. Start 22/Oct 11am, End 23/Oct 3pm). I’m running batches of migrations that might run for days or hours, but I need to get a sub-set of hundreds of Task reports from within a particular day. It’s not really practical to have to wait till tomorrow before I initiate a batch of processes.

  16. Manage Scheduled Tasks: Improve setting calendar date (text box would be nice)

    In my scenario, I had to adjust the next run time for 250 tasks. Clicking the icon > clicking clear, I can manually type in a date (in the proper format) if I click twice in it. Clicking once, the calendar pops up. To me, that is great if you have a singular item. It is a pain when trying to edit multiples.

  17. Manage Schedule Tasks: Sort "task" by ascending or descending

  19. Schedule Tasks : "select all" use only curent files not those which exist when the task is running

    when we schedule a task if we use select all option, only file existing at that time are copied when the task is running.
    New files created in between the time you create the task and the time it's running are not include.
