  1. Migrate Microsoft Teams Chatrooms/Channels

    We need to do a tenant to tenant migration of Office 365. Your tool looks like it could aid with that, but by question is about Microsoft Teams migration. Aside from the Teams content that is in SharePoint I have not found any supported method to other content from teams such as chats and channel conversation. Is Sharegate working on this?

  4. Revamp the Authentication System

    -I would love to have only to submit one set of credentials (and maybe have to say “use for all”, for example) and then have source and destination login with these automatically.

    -Keep my credentials saved so i dont have to reauthenticate every single time

    -When performing a migration i’m being asked to sign in for both the source and the destination whereas a lot of the time its the same credentials for both. I.e. Within the same tenant. It would be helpful to just be able to signin once at the beginning of a session.

    -saved credentials / accounts. …

  7. Migrating MicroFeed List

    Dear sir/madam,

    At a customer, we are planning to migrate from SharePoint on-premises to SharePoint Online.

    They have a lot of MicroFeed lists and they would like to migrate the content.

    On your website, I see this is not supported: https://support.share-gate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000600227-Copying-the-content-from-to-a-MicroFeed-list-is-not-supported. Do you know if there is a workaround for this?

    With kind regards,

    Jim van Leeuwen

    Definitely something to look into! Thanks for taking the time to share.

    The PMR or “Permissions Matrix Report” is one of our popular reports, it makes sense to want to leverage it for more than just a report.

    We’ll be evaluating what the best way to present this information shortly with our teams. As soon as I know more, will keep you posted with an update.
    Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback again.

    We understand this need, but seeing as it is fairly trivial to do in SharePoint Management Shell, for the time being we’re concentrating our efforts on more complex scenarios that have no easy alternative.

  12. Add a Feature to Simulate Read-Only Lock for Migration

    Users wish to lock their sites during the migration to avoid having to deal with any user changes, during, or post migration.

    Having a feature that would extract all the source site permissions (I'm thinking PMR), strip it and leave it read-only for everyone, and then allow to use the extracted permissions to re-apply them at the destination (or source if they wish to), could be very useful for a good number of users.

    Though we’ve had support for Exchange Public Folders in the past, we decided to remove it and not support it with our tool.

    The intricacies of Exchange and especially Public Folders migration can be quite complicated. We did not feel that we were bringing a good experience to our customers.

    Though one should never say never, so we’ll keep you posted if there is an update. Thanks for taking the time!
