  1. 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.

    Our stance still stand on this feature and we still wish to provide it to you guys eventually.

    At this point this is more a question of priority and once we feel like our features to move to the cloud and other environnements are on point, we will get to this.

    Hello ShareGaters,

    I was going through the comments in this thread and clearly understood your desire of visibility over user alerts (who created them, type of alerts, etc.) but I am curious to hear how the info would be used, how you would consume the info and most importantly, do you also feel the need to take any kind of actions over the alerts?

    I hope I’ll hear from you soon!

    Thank you

  4. Migration Queue

    Be able to create a Migration Queue where a migration job will start only when the previous one is completed.

    Example: SG Job 1 Starts > SG Job 1 Completes > SG Job 2 Starts > SG Job 2 Completes > SG Job 3 Starts > SG Job 3 Completes > and so on.

    [Original question]
    Can we schedule migrations that start when another finishes (dependent)? Not with PowerShell, but with the current UI.

    Hi everyone,

    You’ll be please to hear that we started working on adding the ability to copy Planner. In the first iteration, whenever you copy a Team the connected Planner will also be copied which means we won’t be able to copy Planners by themselves.

    We are currently aiming at releasing this somewhere in June.

    Have a nice day!

  6. 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. …

  11. 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.

  12. Remove All Permission/Turn on Read-Only of Source Site After 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.

  17. Support the Office 365 unified audit logs

    The legacy Audit Reports are no longer available online and have been moved to the Exchange Unified Audit logs in the Security and Compliance Center. The Audit Reports in ShareGate Desktop no longer provide the details for the events we are looking for. "Unable to extract the event details."

    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.

  19. Better Permissions Matrix Report (PMR) Export


    • Model PMR extract in Excel as Pivot Tables and charts.

    • It would be useful to be able to export the permissions matrix report as a PDF file, as well as a spreadsheet.
      -Export the PMR as a HTML report
