                    Hello everybody!

                    It seems to be more complicated than we thought and had to push this back in our priorities for our roadmap.

                    We’ll come back to it if this becomes a priority again and if we’re able to determine a solution for it.

                  • Powershell Automatic Script Based on UI Parameters

                    It would be awesome if you had a function in the UI that allowed me to set up a migration, and then generate the corresponding PowerShell (save me the time of figuring how to encode all of my options).

                    • Use the "And" or "Or" Logic on Filters in Reports

                      As it stand, the Reporting feature only supports the "And" logic when adding filters to a report. This is a request to have the option to use the "Or" logic when having multiple filters.

                        We know it’s been two years since the last update to this suggestion, so it feels like we need to update it.

                        We still would like to do it, but the effort investment is quite large and we feel like it is better put in working toward a tool that is better suited to support the modern workplace than to improve our current reporting tooling which works quite well.

                        We do keep this initiative close as we still want to do it eventually, not just in a near future.

                          Hello everyone,

                          We are currently working on a new and improved version of the Insights feature we had in Sharegate Desktop. We are analyzing the feedback we received from all of you guys, and more particularly the suggestions we collected on the email notifications that were sent to site owners. We still want our web app to contact your owners through emails to ask them if their unused groups or sites are to be kept or archived, but we are questioning ourselves on the sender of the email. The emails Sharegate was sending were coming from one of our internal email accounts, called Sharegate Notification noreply@share-gate.com. By reading your feedback, we understood that owners did not know Sharegate, causing them to be reluctant to answer the emails. Most of them also generated support calls to your IT team to make sure the emails were safe to open and not…

                                  As mentioned previously, this is not on our roadmap for the time being.

                                  I just wanted to mention that there is a quick workaround which is to export the folders and documents from Dropbox to a file system and then import them into SharePoint using Sharegate with the Import from File Share option.

                                  For more info on the import option: https://support-desktop.sharegate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000640588-Walkthrough-Import-from-File-Share

                                  Regards,

                                    • Multi-user selection in the search section for features "add/remove/copy permissions"

                                      Remove all users in a site collection without going to each sub-site and removing them from security groups.

                                      I have over 700 users that need to be removed in multiple sub-sites and various security groups. It would take me forever to remove them if I have to add their names individually.

                                      Being able to select many users at a time in the search section for features like “remove permissions”. For now you have to search for one user, add it, search for another one, add it, etc.

                                      • Add email field in all reports

                                        It would be nice if reports could pull emails instead of just names. I know some reports can, but not all.

                                        - Audit Report
                                        - Permission Matrix Report
                                        - Built-In reports

                                        Email address linked to the user.
                                        ID also for pre-build reports

                                          Good Morning!

                                          Thanks for using Sharegate!

                                          We haven’t added email fields inside all our reports yet, but that’s a relevant idea! In fact, we’ve planned to add it to all our pre-build reports, audit report and we need to think the design for adding it inside the Permission Matrix Report (nice challenge!!).

                                          I don’t have an ETA from the team, but I’ll definitely update the status when we’re going to start the implementation.

                                          If you have any other questions, just let me know and I’ll be happy to help. And have a fantastic day!

                                          Nathalie

                                          File migration jobs have a default name that cannot be changed. This creates lots of jobs with (near) identical names making it nearly impossible to determine which job is which task.

                                          Make that option available in the UI and for Powershell jobs
