  1. Set a Default for Mapping Unresolved User and Groups

    To be able to default mapping of Unresolved users.
    For every migration I set in the mappings screen that Unresolved user and groups should be system account. If not it pulls my name into the modified by or create by field. It would be great to set a default, so I don't have to go in and set it for every migration. I do see that I can export a list and re-import it for another migration, but for just the Unresolved users that process is longer then searching for the account I want to use.

  2. Being able to revist a Export metadata session.

    I've setup a export to spreadsheet with field mappings etc, then run a test export of a small number of records. Thinking I'd be able to revist the session as you can with migration.. it appears not!
    This would be very useful...

    Cheers

  3. Report Request: Migration Activities

    I would like to generate a report on actions in my task list using the details on the ShareGate Desktop Tasks page and use the high-level information for things like progress and status reports. I do not see an option in my app. If it does not exist, please consider creating one and/or the option to make one in the custom report’s options. If it does exist, please send a link that I can reference.

  4. Allow User Profile information in reports

    Within different reports, we would need to see more information from the user's profile, like "Job Title", "Department" and more. Same with SharePoint Groups where the PMR should give out the description of the SharePoint Group

  5. Scheduled Tasks - be able to 'select all' or export for reference

    It would be fantastic if you'd allow for the selection of all items (drag to highlight) or export of the scheduled task list for informational purposes. We've had to delete our AppData a few times, and now have to reinstall, and it would be great if we could save the scheduled tasks as a reference for rebuilding.

    Thanks!

  6. New copy screen

    The new copy screen shows the tiles vertically and occupying lot of space towards down, and the history of previous copy sessions has very little room with vertical scroll, many working from home these days with laptop does not have comfortable look.

  8. Add a external access since column

    Is it possible to include a from date in external users reports?
    We would use a from date to start a renewal process. Or are there other ways to achieve this?

  9. Be able to add a column from the copy list feature

    I really like the function, however the lack of ability to automatically create the columns in the new site, along with any views is a real annoyance.

  10. Export Teams conversations to HTML

    Export only the conversation to HTML without having to copy the whole Team? I have some requests from customers who want to keep some "important" conversation for reference.

  11. Naming convention option in Copy Teams

    Hi Team, after started using new version 13.0.0, I realized about the need of migrate Teams over already existing ones in destination Tenant.
    Also, there is a different naming convention in the new Tenant, and I have several Teams to migrate for one acq (+900), so it is very hard to change the names one by one.

  12. Clean Orphaned User Enhancement # 6

    Here is a feature/enhancement that would be very beneficial to our very large/complex company:

    The ability to change the tasks view to show URL as opposed to the Site Name/Title - for example "Orphaned User Account on http://example.com/sites/example" instead of site title for reference purposes.

    Because when you have 300,000 site collections the site name/title are not descriptive enough to find again in the Tasks list.

  13. Clean Orphaned User Enhancement # 5

    Here is a feature/enhancement that would be very beneficial to our very large/complex company:

    It would be helpful to have some way of loading all the site collections so I don't have to use Explorer to get each one. We have upwards of 300,000 site collections, just in the one farm.

    Some SCAs have permissions to 50 SCs - event that small of a grouping is too time consuming to load one by one.

  14. Clean Orphaned User Enhancement # 4

    Here is a feature/enhancement that would be very beneficial to our very large/complex company:

    The ability to search for/remove an orphaned user/account within a web application, rather than one site collection at a time.

    For example, let's say a user was let go and we need to remove the user from all site collections - ASAP. Running reports individually is not feasible - too time consuming and not efficient.

  15. Clean Orphaned User Enhancement # 3

    Here is a feature/enhancement that would be very beneficial to our very large/complex company:

    The ability to select X number of accounts - because right now it's one at a time or the whole list. But sometimes 5,000 or 10,000 at a time is all that can/should be done given SC auditing and change logs and DB performance.

    I have one site collection with almost half a million orphaned users and to have the ability to remove them in small chunks would be greatly appreciated.

  16. Clean Orphaned User Enhancement # 2

    Here is a feature/enhancement that would be very beneficial to our very large/complex company:

    The ability to select certain domains/accounts - a filter if you will. So we could select deleted accounts vs disabled accounts (important) or domain X vs domain Y, or email addresses with certain characteristic or user accounts that have the letter ZZ in them. Because sometimes when you are tackling a list of 100,000 orphaned users, carving them up into smaller grouping helps - and there's only so many hours in a weekend.

  17. Clean Orphaned User Enhancement # 1

    Here is a feature/enhancement that would be very beneficial to our very large/complex company:
    The time/date stamp (local) when removing the orphaned users - sometimes we run out of content DB space and it would be helpful to know what time it happened and also would help me to be able to gauge throughput.

    We also have a separation of duties, so the admin team no longer has access to servers, so we have to escalate to another team to resolve issues. So being able to pinpoint when the error occurred is also helpful to that team. It would also…

  18. Better search/filter options for reports select targets

    I work in a tenant with 7,000+ site collections. I need to run reports on sites that match "sites/abc" for example. Using the search does NOT display all relevant site collections. It is extremely frustrating and next to impossible to manually scroll through this list to select the collections i need. let me search, check some boxes, then search again without losing what's selected. Also, expand powershell to be able to run reports against a csv of site collection urls, that would be immensely helpful for scheduling reports. thanks!

  20. Create document sets on the fly

    "We are looking to move documents from one library to another, where document sets will be introduced along the documents to be moved, but where the document sets have no corresponding item in the source (ie no folder or existing document set). Is this possible to achieve with SG?"
