  1. Custom Feature GUIDs and Titles

    It's not unusual to encounter opaque CUSTOM FEATURES warnings/errors like this:

    The following custom site collection features are activated: '8dfaf93d-e23c-4471-9347-07368668ddaf', '893627d9-b5ef-482d-a3bf-2a605175ac36', '738250ba-9327-4dc0-813a-a76928ba1842', '5709298b-1876-4686-b257-f101a923f58d'. Custom features need to be manually deployed at the destination of the migration.

    While we all understand the need to report the specific feature GUID, it would certainly be an improvement to include the feature name, when known:

    The following custom site collection features are activated: '8dfaf93d-e23c-4471-9347-07368668ddaf' (MobileWordViewer), '893627d9-b5ef-482d-a3bf-2a605175ac36' (MobilePowerPointViewer), '738250ba-9327-4dc0-813a-a76928ba1842' (PowerPointEditServer), '5709298b-1876-4686-b257-f101a923f58d' (PowerPointServer). Custom features need to be manually deployed at the destination of the migration.

    To be clear, we are not suggesting the tool will…

  2. User Mapping Report Between Two OneDrives

    Since Sharegate PowerShell window allows me to create User Mapping files(for permission mapping between tenants), it would be awesome if there was a report option that took in the User mapping file to designate which accounts OneDrive to connect to, then have the report return OneDrive mappings (source and destination) site addresses. Currently we only have the ability to run a report against a single tenant to return OneDrive’s site addresses. If a report feature could find the source and destination OneDrive’s and export the site address values, that would save a lot of time in the future.

  3. FIlter Content Migration by Age of Item

    We'd like to migrate items older than 180 days and planning to schedule the job so that it runs every week for incremental migration. Our idea is to keep only last 180 days in the on-prem and remaining in the SPO.

  4. Migrate custom "HTML Field Security" values

    The Site Collection Administration setting “HTML Field Security” is used by the site to allow external iframes. (ie show content from youtube or google) Only the default entries are available after a copy of a site collection is made using the desktop tool.

    No entries from the source site are present. Please pass through all the entries.

  5. Migrate "HTML Field Security" settings

    Our business requires that we use HTML Field Security, but when we copy the site using ShareGate Desktop, the settings do not over and must be set manually each time.

  6. Use local regional settings for export to excel / csv

    To prevent compatibility issues when using a SG report in a PowerShell script, ensuring local regional settings are used to generate the csv would be nice.

  7. Option to map managed metadata values

    Some users will rebuild a new Managed Metadata structure at the destination. Sometimes this means some existing terms will exist in new term hierarchies.
    When migrating, we will recreate these terms as they're not within the same hierarchy (so not considered the same). An option to generate and modify the terms would be most useful for this kind of restructuring.

  8. Workflow report - indicate which list uses it

    This report would be even better if a column was provided that indicated WHICH LIST had the workflow. When a site has scores of lists, it's a real hassle tracking down the offending list.

  10. PMR - Allow wild cards in urls when selecting scope

    running a tenant wide PMR takes days (weeks?) and selecting individual urls out of thousands isn't realistic. Perhaps a way to specific wildcards - e.g. /sites/a or /sites/a - e*

  11. Ability to Export Scheduled Tasks List

    I am in the midst of replacing the Sharegate folders again due to issues with connections. We have 70 scheduled tasks that have to be manually recreated each time we have to start over with Sharegate folders. If there was a way to export the scheduled jobs, it would make life so much easier.

    Thanks!

  12. Report on documents synced with OneDrive

    Some admins have some requirements to know what files are synced in OneDrive for Business. Having a filter or column to show these files would be very useful.

  13. Better Status Info During Migration

    I've felt a need as I've been moving content to be better informed about what's going on and how it's going. For example, a migration of a OneDrive via Insane Mode was going slowly, so I took a closer look at the 1 warning which popped up. It said that migrating ASPX pages wasn't supported, so this library will be migrated normally. Well, in a OneDrive migration scenario there's ONLY one library. If there'd been a flag on the console saying that the migration was being performed in normal mode, and here's why, that would have really helped notice this…

  14. Provide granular searches for site collections

    For organizations with large numbers of site collections, the ShareGate reporting feature is a great way to gather data. However, if only a subset of those sites are needed, it can be tedious to scroll through the entire list and manually check the box next to each needed site. Since there is already a search box, it would be great if some kind of 'advanced search' were available for narrowing down site collections based on known elements of the URL. Using regular expressions would be ideal, but even the ability to use Boolean expression would be a very helpful.

  18. add an option to migrate items declared as records so they're no longer records at the destination

    Since SharePoint Online is now using labels and deprecating in place records, having an option to remove the declaration would be useful for some users.

  19. Export Start & End Date of Migration Tasks

    Not being able to export the start and completion time for jobs caused us to have to manually record this for the client. Why this wasn't included in the export was surprising.

  20. Add a Toggle Button to Enable or Disable Offline Client Access

    It would be really cool if we could enable or disable Offline Client Access via the UI for individual document libraries (similar to how you can enable or disable the "Allow New Folders" option).
