    • Copy permission scopes from one object to another

      The idea would be to be able to copy the permissions as they are, from one object to another. Currently, this can only be done in a granular fashion with Quick Actions.

      • View the open document option on a document library (Open in client program / in the browser / server)

        There should be a way to see and configure if a document library is configured to open documents in the client program, in the browser, or with the server default.

                • Change user/group permission in one step

                  Hi, permissions work great for adding new or removing existing but editing requires 2 steps, one to add and one to delete. An Edit option would be real nice. Even better if I dont have to find and select the groups that are already listed.

                      • Ability to change the Access Request setting of a site using Sharegate

                        It's not possible in Sharegate to change the access request setting of a site. I'd like the option to do so straight from the application

                        • Cleaned Orphaned Users improvement

                          Our organization moves a finalized former employee account to a desiganted AD group called "finalized former employees". I wish when I ran the "clean orphaned users report I could choose between disabled users OR users in a specific AD group. I guess Sharegate is querying the AD info in the SP profile service DB and not AD directly so not sure how you could make this work fluidly unless your customer was syncing the particular AD group with SP profile service? But if you can figure a way to use Sharegate to act on users in a specific AD group/OU…

                          • Modify permissions on content through reports

                            It would be really helpful to be able to run a report and then be able to execute an action from that report. For example. I can generate a report to return all files on my tenant with a certain content type. If i wanted to give a group permissions based on that report i cannot do that currenty.

                            • Edit Security / SharePoint groups members

                              Is there a way to directly manage sharepoint security groups through sharegate by simply selecting the site and then, by clicking on one of the available groups, add or remove members?
                              Thank you!

                              • Show the limited access before cleaning them.

                                Instead of cleaning all of them, it would be nice to be able to pick the ones we want to remove.
