  2. Navigation Merging

    Currently, regardless of the settings in Sharegate, when you copy navigation from one site to another, it overwrites the navigation on the destination site. My use case is I am the SP admin for 6 divisions of a larger corporation. I am trying to set a similar look and feel to all the sites. I would like to have a base template navigation that I can copy and paste to sites and have some of the division sites have personalized navigation. If I ever have to update some of the navigation, it would be great to update the template then…

  3. when copying sites, libraries and lists dont add the default documentor item content type

    we use custom content types across the board and don't leave the default document and Item content types in libraries and lists. If we use ShareGate to copy a site, library or list it add the default content type which we then have to go through and remove.

  4. Expandable columns

    Sercurity Targets, search results for the Object column, there is not a column to slide to allow me to see the name of our subsite. I see the https://domain.sharepoint.com/sites/sitecollection/subsite/sub.... it is cut off and i cna't expand the column to verify that it's the one I want. The title is different than the site name.
    Feedback sent from the Targets view.

  7. Add ability to update 'Search and Offline Availability' at site level in ShareGate Explorer view

    It would be great to have the ability to remove a site from SharePoint search. The SPWeb boolean property is NoCrawl.

    Making this available in Explorer will take several steps off of our plate when we deactivate old / unused sites in preparation for site removal.

  11. Disconnect from specific sites within the farm/tenant

    It would be useful to be able to disconnect from one site collection specifically instead of having to disconnect the whole environment.

  13. Be able to expand by levels in the PMR

    Right now you can only expand all groups or manually select them, it would be nice to be able to expand all the first level permissions and so on

  17. Apply classification with sensitivity or retention labels when migrating files

    When migrating files from on-prem to Office 365 some clients require content to be classified before storing this in the destination site for compliance. This solution requires the use of Microsoft Information Protection and either sensitivity or retention labels. It would be great to have an option to set a default label for files when copying them using ShareGate. This feature would also be useful when migrating content between sites in Office 365 when the destination has a different default classification label.

  18. Preserve Communication site Design

    Communication Sites can be created with 3 designs:
    - Topic
    - Showcase
    - Blank

    ShareGate Desktop will always set the destination Communication Site to "Topic", even if you select another one. I would like the application to preserve the selected design from the Source.

  20. Look and feel

    Hi, hope you are well !

    I would like to mention that I really love the product and I am using it on a daily basis. It is working very well, very fast, no issues on performance.

    I do have a small suggestion on the look and feel, especially in the "copy" section. The 'tiles' for "Copy Structure" / "Copy Content" / " ..." are very high/large. As a frequent user, you know which one to use.
    I am more interested in the "Recent copy sessions". Unfortunately that was moved down below a time ago, and is therefore less accessible…
