  2. Modify a subsite template without promoting it

    What I would like to do is just convert a subsite to a different template, not really promote it.

  3. Promoting a subsite to a site collection - Choose Libraries and Versioning detail

    Currently there is no means to promote a subsite to a site collection and choose the following options:

    1. Number of versions to migrate - it takes everything!!!
    2. Which libraries to migrate - it takes all of them!!! Including the preservation hold library.
    3. Replacement for orphaned users, such as 'system account'

    Not having these features in place has resulted in a 300Gb site with hundreds of versions above the configured limit due to retention policies being copied over - it was only attempted once and abandoned via this method because of these limitations and more importantly because it appeared to fail…

  4. Missing users should not prevent file copies during promote operation

    When promoting a subsite, there aren't many options to deal with potential errors, like missing users. My experience is if there are missing users, ShareGate does not copy list items but instead, throws errors. A list with over 1600 items only copied 333 because of missing users.

    There should be more options available, similar to copying a site or list, when promoting sites.
