  1. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  7. For Copy Structure jobs, allow "Source List Name" as an available column in Tasks

    Currently it only shows the source site. Determining the source list(s) used requires opening each Task manually.

  8. Folder Mapping for more automation

    Automatically map Folder "My Files" on a Fileshare to Folder "Documents" in OD4B, so that everything in that Folder is always being copied to Documents in the users onedrive. Same with videos, music, pictures.

    You can easily automate and move more quickly to OD4B.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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!

  17. 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.

  19. 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?

  20. 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.
