  1. Database size reporting

    SPDockit can do health checks such as looking at database sizes, seeing disk allocation, checking the event logs, etc. These are things related to the SharePoint on-premise environment that ShareGate does not have visibility into. I would love to see these features integrated into ShareGate or perhaps it would be another tool altogether.

  2. Ability to export Manage Activations page report as CSV

    We have 100+ Sharegate licenses that we provide to departments in our organization with fee. It is very hard to build reports and review based on current activations. We would like to request a feature to be able to export these activations into CSV file.

  5. Define task name in Options

    The ability to rename existing tasks is a good thing. It would be much better if naming a task could be done proactively in the UI. I believe this can be done in PowerShell. However, since come tasks cannot be started via PowerShell (e.g. Permission Matrix Reports), this ability is limited.

    Being able to set a Task Name before starting a job, via the UI, would make it possible to organize tasks instead of having to manually open each task to determine what it was for prior to renaming it (see attached).

  8. Add "Copy From" and "Copy To" in the Copy screen

    As one of innumerable admins who work long and fluctuating hours, and who still perform some migrations through the GUI, it would be super awesome if there were a visual indicator of source and destination sites in the migration interface. Even better, a "Copy From" and "Copy To" heading over each column. When you're preparing to merge a large site collection into a blank target site at 2 in the morning, it would be very reassuring to know beyond a shadow of doubt that I'm not erasing one of the company's primary knowledge portals. The URLs can be very similar…

  9. Report on which sites have external users with a Yes/No column or filter

    see which sites are externally shared and which ones are not (without filtering by user type). Maybe an ability to include another column that says “externally shared” with a yes or no.

  11. Adapt to my small laptop screen

    ShareGate on my corporate issued laptop is almost unusable due to how large the UI elements have scaled. Please consider an adaptable UI that adapts to the size and resolution of users who must do some work from a laptop.
    Version: ShareGate 12.2.1

  14. Include SPOManagementShell authentication in Connect-Site as Browser authentication

  16. Site Downloads and Recycle bin

    Site downloads really should include Recycle bin files. I'm not looking to migrate, delete, or restore content, but we should be able to export the entire site as-is including a folder of deleted items. We had legal use case where this was needed and your product did not support it.

  19. Keep selection when resuming session

    Hello, the option to go back to a completed/historical task is a great option. However, I find that when I select "Return to this Session" my selctions (ie I only want to copy certain files or sites) in the "copy from" window are dropped which greatly decreases the usefulness of this option. Can I please request that a feature is added whereby selections are saved with the task? Thanks, Mike.

  20. Improve support of browser authentication

    There needs to be improvements around authentication in certain scenarios. We have a large Microsoft 365 tenant with over 100k users. Due to this, administration and support for SharePoint is provided at the agency level (the highest level of organizational division within the entity). So our specific use case is: 1) are not tenant administrators, 2) the tenant administrators will provide no support to us, 3) we use browser-based authentication. So what ends up happening in our case is that every time we open ShareGate we are forced to either log on or cancel individually for every one of our…
