  2. Create a new PowerShell Command to use the Export metadata feature

    Some users would need to be able to generate the Excel Spreadsheet for their metadata using PowerShell. When automating a complex migration, having an export for all the lists with a foreach loop would be a powerful way to take full control of the data during the migration project.

    I would like to find all email-enabled libraries and lists in my on premise Sharepoint. How can I do that? I tried creating a new report but did not find the field available to add.

    We understand this need, but seeing as it is fairly trivial to do in SharePoint Management Shell, for the time being we’re concentrating our efforts on more complex scenarios that have no easy alternative.

  6. Support Power automate (Flow) in Migration

    Migrate Flow integrations attached to lists and libraries

    See if we could potentially convert old email enabled lists to the equivalent Flow integration

  8. Migrating MicroFeed List

    Dear sir/madam,

    At a customer, we are planning to migrate from SharePoint on-premises to SharePoint Online.

    They have a lot of MicroFeed lists and they would like to migrate the content.

    On your website, I see this is not supported: https://support.share-gate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000600227-Copying-the-content-from-to-a-MicroFeed-list-is-not-supported. Do you know if there is a workaround for this?

    With kind regards,

    Jim van Leeuwen

  9. Migrate Nintex Forms Associated with Flexi Task

    Currently Sharegate fails to migrate Nintex forms associated with Flexi tasks with an error that 'Nintex Workflow for Office 365 does not allow task forms to be custom'.

    Since Nintex now allows the form customization, can we enable Sharegate to move it?

  16. Item Count on list/libraries with Site Collection (or new) Report

    It would be extremely useful to have an item count for all list/libraries within a site collection.

    We are migrating sites and would like to verify that all content has come over. Currently, we don't see a nice way of showing this.

    We do not want to provide the migration results as the validation report as it has too much unneeded information, but are instead looking for something similar to the Site Collection report.

    Thanks,
    Alex

  17. Add/Remove/Copy user permissions with PowerShell

    Add powershell cmdlets to add/remove/copy user permissions.

    This could be useful, for example, for a user that needs to replace thousands of users due to an AD domain change, it would be useful to be able to use a CSV for all the users
