              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.

            • Report and actions On Alerts

              Reporting:
              -list user alerts filtered by site or by user, showing which object/list is targeted
              -show me where "user X" has alerts
              -show me which users have alerts within "site A"

              Actions:
              - Remove alerts for orphaned users

                • Run Audit report on subsite and other levels

                  Audit report: We should be able to run reports based on sub-site, not just at the site collection level. Because this is a busy site, it can't handle all the views

                  • 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.

                    • Run an Inventory from Powershell

                      Please add the option of running an inventory from Powershell.

                      • 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).

                            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

                            - create a report which can tell us which documents do not have metadata attached to it

                            • Visual site map of all site collections

                              would be really good if your product created a site map of all site collections and sub sites across the farm in a visual diagram that could be saved as an image or pdf

                              • Ability to Automate the Export of Scheduled Reports

                                Some users would find extremely practical to be able to have Sharegate automatically export the scheduled report to a predetermined location on drive. This would help bring them to meetings, and help team manage their SP environments.

                                • Rename Tasks

                                  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

                                    We have started working on this feature. We will soon allow you to rename your migration tasks once they are launched. This should make it easier for you to find what you are really looking for.

                                    We will keep you updated once it’s done.

                                    - Connect multiple sources to a single destination (or vice-versa)

                                    Without going to PowerShell

                                    • 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
