  4. Suggestion for the Promote feature

    I was unable to use the Promote feature for my project. I wanted to promote 300+ subsites.


    1. All subsites were in one site collection. A feature in the UI to bulk select them is missing.


    2. I had to change the url per site because they contained spaces, and the url is reused as Alias by ShareGate. It does not resolve the problem automatically. Also the UI does not support changing settings for all selected subsites.

  5. User mapping in Promote feature

  7. Promote subsites in another farm

    The new promote subsites feature should let you promote a subsite to a root site in another farm.

  8. Support Hosted name Site collections in Promote subsites

    This is a great new feature. However, our farms use host named site collections, and I cannot figure out how to promote a HNSC site to a HNSC. The 'New iste address (URL)' does not give me that option.
