  1. 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. …

  2. Remove All Permission/Turn on Read-Only of Source Site After 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.

    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.

  8. 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.

  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?

    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.

  13. Move List with PowerApps Customized form

    Hi,

    Can we move list with PowerApps Customized form to another site using ShareGate? Currently it is not possible in PowerApps to tag along its customized form once its list is moved.

  14. 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
