  1. Powershell Automatic Script Based on UI Parameters

    It would be awesome if you had a function in the UI that allowed me to set up a migration, and then generate the corresponding PowerShell (save me the time of figuring how to encode all of my options).

    This is not in our plan as this would be a massive amount of work. We also fear that the results would be supbar compared to an hand-crafted script.

    We understand that PowerShell can be intimidating but our documentation is there to help (and so is our incredible support team).

  2. Support Microsoft Planner migrations

    User would like to have support to copy Microsoft Planner from one tenant to another.

    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. Merge teams - Copy content and conversations from one team to another

    My organisation has one very large tenant and a small test environment we hardly ever use. Will it eventually be possible to copy the contents of a team to another one in the same tenant?

  9. Better Permissions Matrix Report (PMR) Export


    • Model PMR extract in Excel as Pivot Tables and charts.

    • It would be useful to be able to export the permissions matrix report as a PDF file, as well as a spreadsheet.

  11. Rename scheduled tasks

    I rely on being able to rename my tasks. Otherwise, it's generic like "Copy 100 items from Documents to Documents". I need to know what site/subsite it is, and so on. It appears there is no way to rename a scheduled task, even when it's a recurring one. Only the migration report generated after can be renamed.

  13. 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.

    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.

  17. Support the Office 365 unified audit logs

    The legacy Audit Reports are no longer available online and have been moved to the Exchange Unified Audit logs in the Security and Compliance Center. The Audit Reports in ShareGate Desktop no longer provide the details for the events we are looking for. "Unable to extract the event details."

  18. 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

  19. 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?
