  1. Remove (hide or delete) the quick launch link created with the Audit library

    When the audit report is run on a site collection, a new library is created. The library is hidden and contains nothing, but a link appear in the quick launch menu to indicate the newly created library. This feature request would be to hide or delete this entry.

  2. Smarter Version History Cleanup

    Can you add a feature to Sharegate so it just deletes versions that are outside of the version limit? For example, if I have a document with 18 versions and I set the version limit to 5, can Sharegate delete just the 13 versions outside of the version limit and leave the most recent 5 versions intact? Thank you.

  3. Default settings for migrations - structure & content

    During migrations often we need a configuration that is different from defaults eg migrate without retaining permissions. It would be good to be able to set this at an application level so that human error cannot happen. Perhaps have 'Application profiles' for certain activities, that remain until you change them.

    This happened to me where I did not uncheck 'preserve permissions' on a network drive migration and now have 100,000s of documents with incorrect permissions.

  9. Connect to All Sites you have access to

    I know there is a way to connect to all Sites and One Drives if you are a Global or SP Admin but, I am currently do not have those permissions. It would be nice if I could connect to all site collections that I'm a Site Collection admin of without having SP Admin rights. Connecting and maintaining connections to each site collection individually is not feasible.

  12. Plan Option

    Plan option should have filter option to identify the actual files, their size and approx time for migration. This will be easier to generate the in-scope files and folders.

  13. Inventory Details

    Maybe i am missing it, but it would be ideal to have library/list/etc. count info in a new column on the inventory tool. This is a good piece of information for inventory purposes. From what i recall the file share inventory had this, i could be wrong.
    Thanks

  14. Add the ability to create a Report for Sites where Administrator contains user (or group)

    We frequently need to create reports for all SITES where Administrator contains a specific user. Currently you can only create a report for Site Collection where Administrator contains a specific user, but not for sites. We need a report like this almost weekly and to get this information, we have to first run a report for Site Collections where Administrator contains a specific user and then run a report for All sites in all targets and then export both report results to Excel and do use vlookup to match on the Site Collection address. We have over 20,000 SharePoint sites…

  18. Lookup field not intact

    Instead of providing multiple workaround to retain look up column
    just have the login to do it in automated way.
    Other migration tools do it by first migration without lookup column and in second iteration wih lookup colunns.
