  1. 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…

  5. 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.

  8. Filter out public site when running reports

    Another suggestion would be to be able to run a permissions report that allows you to exclude public sites. I sometimes get to asked to run permissions report for a user for an entire tenant and the report can be quite large because it includes public sites, which is correct because they do have permissions but it isn’t very useful to the person who is reviewing the request. If there was a way to exclude them when running the report or if the report could indicate which sites are public this would help them filter out these sites.

  9. Migration event hooks for scripted migrations

    Be able to register hooks for various lifecycle events during a migration. For example, we are migrating content from fileshares. We need to be able to dynamically generate SGUM files based on who has permissions to a given file. We can't generate a mapping file up front as we have >100,000 people in AD who "could" be involved which would lead to a huge SGUM file. If we could register a handler for each file being migrated and supply the mapping information to be used for that file before it was migrated, that would be awesome.

    This would also allow…

  10. Promote subsites in another farm

    The new promote subsites feature should let you promote a subsite to a root site in another farm.

  11. Add a Delete latest version only

    How about adding another option to the “Clean version history” action: “Delete latest version only”.

    It is crazy that when I open a file that hasn’t been touched in 5 years to see what it is, the autosave feature saves it once I click into or change sheets. Now, a file that hasn’t been touched in 5 years looks like it was just edited! I want to delete the latest version which is actually no change at all. I think I wrote a PowerShell script to do this once by copying all the versions of a file except the last…

  12. Columns in Item-level Permission Custom Report

    Hi, I'm trying to generate PMR but realize that the built-in PMR doesn't list items with inheritance permission. So I use custom report for item-level permission, which worked nicely. Except that it doesn't have one column I need which exist in the built-in PMR: "Item Path". Meaning if there are items in subfolders, I wouldn't be able to know their path. So, I just want to suggest to add that column as an available option in the custom report.

    Thanks.

  14. Automatic fallback to normal mode.

    You could have a switch that automatically turns on insane vs normal when the item count is less then 300 or 500 or something. But it seems to get amazing results if you do normal for low item count and insane for larger item counts.

  16. Restructure UI

    The new UI for the site hierarchy/tree is much more responsive in the new Restructure UI. I would love to see that type of hierarchy in the other sections.

    Cheers!

  17. central/admin ability locally to disconnect environments using same license key

    Hi - I made a suggestion yesterday and would like to addsomething to it. We have a need to be able to administrate activity across all users of our license key. Our users of sharegate are spread across the globe and not in a single team. We would like the ability to be able to disconnect all/any connected environments by users on our license key. We are having big issues with throttling and this would help - as some users tend to leave connections on when their particular tasks have completed.

  18. Large Migrations - Migration Agent

    It would be really good to have an agent install that can be managed from a central ShareGate install for large scale migrations from File Servers. Currently ShareGate has to be installed and managed on each file server that you wish to upload, making it difficult to get a widespread view of all the tasks that are being done as well as historic reports.

  19. Ability to "roll up" to inherit security on files/folders in document library

    When migrating a lot of files and folders from the network file share into SharePoint document libraries, if you apply the "security" from the original network file source, you will often end up blowing past the maximum number of individual items that can be secured in a document library.

    We need the ability when this happens to "roll up" the security to a container level above where the individual files are. As in, if I have 25 files in a folder that are secured the same way with individual security, it would be nice to remove the security on the…

  20. Support Hosted name Site collections in Promote subsites

    This is a great new feature. However, our farms use host named site collections, and I cannot figure out how to promote a HNSC site to a HNSC. The 'New iste address (URL)' does not give me that option.
