  6. Option to disable migrating users as Members and Owners of M365 Groups

    During a site collection merge operation into the site collection of a M365 Group, ShareGate Desktop will grab the members of the source SP Group "Members" and promote them to "Members" of the M365 Group. There should be an opt-out feature that a user can uncheck if they don't want this to happen

  7. Notify users when migrating important structural items, such as homepage

    Please notify us when a migration will overwrite important structural items.
    In example, I have created a new homepage in my destination prior to my migration projet and the new homepage was overwritten by the old one from my source site. Thanks

  10. Automatically split migration between multiple instances of ShareGate Desktop

    As we perform more tenant migration work I would like to see a 'Master - Drone' capability in multi license environments. For example, instead of manually dividing a list of Teams or OneDrive sites into multiple batches, I would like to be able to give a Master node the list of all sites, or even the ability to 'Select All' from the GUI and instruct the Master to divvy up the work to one of X drone installations. This would provide a tenfold increase in migration setup productivity as well as the potential to more effectively balance the workload than…

  11. Allow for a Staging option for Teams copy.

    Allow for a Staging option for Teams copy.

    Staging would create the Team, M365 Group, SharePoint site, create permissions groups, etc. but wouldn't populate any content, members/owners, messages, etc.
    This would allow for a faster migration time by allowing the Teams structure to be created separate of the content migration.

    Of course you would also need to have the ability to do a 2nd portion of the migration separate from the staging portion. (as of 15.0.1 this could be the incremental copy for Teams.)

  13. O365 Owner report please seperate by semicolon

    I have 7500 Groups and need to report who are all the Owners, not in relation to Groups. The Owners names are currently separated by a comma, as well as their user First and Last names. If separated with something other than a comma, I could use Excel to separate all the names to determine duplicates and get the list I need.

    Here's how the O365 Owners report currently looks like:
    Group1: Joe, Schmo1, Joe, Schmo2, Joe, Schmo3, ServiceAccount1, Joe, Schmo4, ServiceAccount2, etc...

    Can you please update the reporting to separate these accounts with a semicolon like this?
    Group1: Joe,…

  15. Automating spaces within site URLs

    Is there a way to change an "illegal character" of a space within the url, not just at the start or the end.
    For example the URL -" /sites/pwa/HM012 - 2016 End of year party/ ".

  17. When checking path file length for importing files, include checkbox for OneDrive Sync used to account for c:\users\username\Company\

    So, I have migrated TB of data and when I run the pre-check all is good, including the file and file path check. BUT, when a users syncs these files using OneDrive, and extra 35-50 characters are used for OneDrive location such as c:\users\username\CompanyNAme-Library.

    Many of times, I migrate files and users try to open and save files and get vague errors and I find that they are over the windows character limit.

    Suggestion: Maybe ShareGate can have a checkbox or option to enter in OneDrive location and take that into account for planning migration

  19. Return to this session for Teams migrations

    Normal copy modes offer a return to this session button when you access the migration report. The idea would be for there to be an equivalent feature for Teams migrations.

  20. Copy the Title of the LinkTitle column when copying lists

    If you rename the "Title" column using the modern interface, it will actually rename the "LinkTitle" column. It seems that copying a list with ShareGate doesn't copy this.
