  1. Add ID to property key in incremental copies

    Honestly, I'm surprised this isn't in the list of fields to create the unique property mapping. There are literally many cases where an incremental list/library copy cannot be achieved without it.

  2. Prioritize lists when copying sites

    If there was an improvement you could put in place for the pick up and drop of a site to be able to prioritize which list goes before the other, this will be good.

  6. Option to provision MySites

    Some users might want to run bulk on-premise migrations to MySites. A command to allow them to provision the MySites in the process could be useful

  7. "Current user" Login for O365 Migration

    The current user feature does not work most of the time it usualy sends Domain\Username however O365 prefers Username@emailDomain. It be great if that was an option so that I don't have to keep changing it.

  8. Microsoft Project Online Backup

    It would be great to be able to backup Project .MPP files, the project database, connected SharePoint sites and environment configurations. Especially because POL is essentially an extension of SharePoint.

    Currently, only FluentPro has a viable product that does this, and the cost effectiveness of their tool is typical of a monopoly.

  9. Bulk edit pre-check or solution to keep unresolved users

    Some users might do a Bulk edit hoping to modify only a value or two, but when the bulk edit runs, it has validate the user in the created by/modified by fields and unresolved users will be lost without any means to get them back.

  10. Open a Pop-Up Screen With the Copy Options When Drag and Drop

    I've been using Sharegate for more than a year now, and when copying content/structures, I would drag and drop, then adjust my options to not include content/not copy permissions from the old site/etc. I've done this probably 100s of times now with our migration. Every single time I have gone through this same process since you changed the settings to be set before dragging and dropping, I've had to cancel the migration and go back and make my changes. I don't get the benefit of this change, and would like to see it go back to the way it was,…

  12. powershell get-list par rootfolder impossible

    Bonjour,
    il serait plus intéressant de pouvoir faire un GET-LIST sur le ROOTFOLDER plutôt que sur le NAME qui peut changer, ou l'ID qui est généré automatiquement.
    Dommange que cela ne soit pas possible via powershell sharegate.
    (ex: sp10: name=gallerie DE pages maîtres / sp16: name=gallerie pages maîtres)
    bonne journée

  13. Support order for lists with "Allow users to order items in this view" option activated

    Some lists could have the option to allow users to order items in the active view. This could be a way for users to establish priorities in a list and it could be important for an organization.

  14. Skip Similar Warning Messages

    Hi Sharegate,
    i dont know if this makes sense, but when i am migrating documentation 1500 documents with a lot of minor versions and i get a specific error (f.ex install server extension) and i simply do not care if the documents are not preserving the authors and timestamps etc. so i have 900 documents with this error and i have to click continue 900 times? instead of having a tickmark saying "remember my choice for the rest of the errors with this code(specific code of the error because i am still interested to see if i get another different…

  16. Support for document information panel

    Some users might need to preserve the document information panel in a migration context, as that might be an important feature in the current SharePoint environment.

  17. Remember document library selection and expansion

    When migrating a number of document libraries/sites in the same structure I use the breadcrumb as the quickest way to copy the document library from one location to another. What would speed it up is if your past select of the document library was rembered for source and destination and expanded on that location, this would stop having to navigate down the tree each time.

  18. Change migration order

    While migrating for example a whole library including files there are two problems.
    When checking "migrate user alerts" and users have an alert for "each time a new item is created" the migration of the library fires all the alerts... This sucks :)

    When you uploaded a file in a library, later ad a mandatory metadata column, but forgett to fill in the metadata at the old file.
    You get a problem migrating the old file because of the missing metadata field. Maybe its helpfull to migrate te whole library columns with "not mandatory" setting, migrate the content and then…

  19. Scrolling selections into view

    When copying content between libraries on two sites, Sharegate remebers the selection for both source and destination lists, which is great. However, when there are many lists, one has to scroll down to find them.
    When keeping single selections in any list, please scroll them into view.

  20. Refresh "All Tasks" brings you back to the first page of results

    When you refresh All Tasks, you are kept on the same page instead of being sent to the first page of the refreshed results.

    Main problem is that when overseeing many Powershell tasks, user might not realize that he currently is on a later page, and conclude that nothing has happened recently.
