    Thanks for taking the time to post this idea. We looked at it with the team and for now have decided that it’s not something we will be working on short term.

    We’ll keep looking at the requests and update if we anything changes

    We know this is a pain, but we are currently blocked by issues in available APIs. Once these issues are available, we will integrate this into the application.

    ETAs from Microsoft are that this should be fixed by the end of the year.

    We’ll keep you updated.

  7. Migrate Microsoft Teams Chatrooms/Channels

    We need to do a tenant to tenant migration of Office 365. Your tool looks like it could aid with that, but by question is about Microsoft Teams migration. Aside from the Teams content that is in SharePoint I have not found any supported method to other content from teams such as chats and channel conversation. Is Sharegate working on 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

  10. Convert Web Parts and Pages from Classic to Modern

    During a migration, have the ability to convert Site Pages and their classic Web Parts to their Modern version (when it exists).

    - If a Classic Web Part does not exist as Modern, it should not be converted.
    - Custom Web Parts should be ignored.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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).

    This is not in our plan as this would be a massive amount of work. We also fear that the results would be supbar compared to an hand-crafted script.

    We understand that PowerShell can be intimidating but our documentation is there to help (and so is our incredible support team).

  18. 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.

  20. 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
