  1. 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.

        • 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

                • Revamp the Authentication System

                  -I would love to have only to submit one set of credentials (and maybe have to say “use for all”, for example) and then have source and destination login with these automatically.

                  -Keep my credentials saved so i dont have to reauthenticate every single time

                  -When performing a migration i’m being asked to sign in for both the source and the destination whereas a lot of the time its the same credentials for both. I.e. Within the same tenant. It would be helpful to just be able to signin once at the beginning of a session.

                  -saved credentials / accounts. …

                  • Add a Feature to Simulate Read-Only Lock for Migration

                    Users wish to lock their sites during the migration to avoid having to deal with any user changes, during, or post migration.

                    Having a feature that would extract all the source site permissions (I'm thinking PMR), strip it and leave it read-only for everyone, and then allow to use the extracted permissions to re-apply them at the destination (or source if they wish to), could be very useful for a good number of users.

                      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.

                        LP Lavoie responded

                        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.

                            Definitely something to look into! Thanks for taking the time to share.

                            The PMR or “Permissions Matrix Report” is one of our popular reports, it makes sense to want to leverage it for more than just a report.

                            We’ll be evaluating what the best way to present this information shortly with our teams. As soon as I know more, will keep you posted with an update.
                            Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback again.

                                  • 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.
