  1. Redirects during Migration Job

    It would be nice to be able to select whether or not the source site you are migrating from could automatically provide a redirect to visiting users after migration is complete. Something the admin will have to decide during the migration setup perhaps? So when users visit the site, they are redirected to the newer site.

  2. Delete Files Based Off a CSV File

    I'd like to be able to provide a listing of files to delete based of a CSV file. Currently, I need to use the reporting and select the files to delete manually.

  3. add an option to restore the prompt to connect to all sites

    Some users like the idea of the pop up to connect to all sites, when they establish a connection to a particular site in the Explorer.
    However, once the popup is denied, it doesn't come back and there's no option to restore it.

  6. Support of Unpublished Nintex Workflows

    Some environments might use workflows more extensively, and wish to migrate even the workflows that are unpublished, since they have a flow where users would experiment and needs those to migrate as well.

  9. Starting Transfer Immediately After Rather than Waiting on the Processing to Be Complete

    I'm just sharing some feedback about features we'd like to see.

    Start transfer immediately on a file level rather than waiting for processing to complete.

    What we’ve seen (although we could certainly be wrong) is that when we start a job it goes into a processing stage for a long time while it scans the files/directories before it begins to transfer anything. The suggestion is that as it scans, it begins upload.

  10. Pop up or visual cue when an update is available

    When there's an update, it's only applied when Sharegate is restarted. However with the application kept open within the app tray, some users that have an always on machine don't always notice there's a new version available. A pop-up, or a small visual cue (or even a button) to advise to restart Sharegate would be useful. Sometimes the updates are necessary with something like a connection to Office 365

  12. Bamboo Calendar Plus Web Part

    To have the ability to migrate Bamboo Calendar Plus Web Part would be nice. It can easily be exported / imported so it shouldn't be complex to support it even if it's from a third party.

  16. Display users under their SharePoint Groups

    When running a permissions matrx and expanding the SharePoing Groups can you make the users in that group appear under it so it keeps the users in that group together instead of lumped to getter because it doesn't make any since when looking at the exported report when I just have a list of users.

  17. Using the saved "other user" authentication for the SharePoint shell

    If we save the account to connect using “other user” (so that the customer can type in the password and not supply it to us), can you add a way to extend that login to the SharePoint Shell window?

    This that the SharePoint Shell gets its authentication from this stored details when you want to for instance pre-provision ODFB or run the ODFB incremental copy script etc.

  18. Track the Size and number of files over time

    We need to compil data inventory on a period ( Number of types of files, Size), you have this inventory but only one shot.

    Graphics view is an advantage but we can do it in excel if we can have this type of data.

  19. Advanced URL Correction

    Some users have been in need to have more control over the URL correction.

    Right now the domain and sites are validated at the source so it works with the domain and site at the destination, but if an URL points to an item with the ID in example, it will not be detected an corrected to work with the new ID at the destination.

  20. Map Other Permission Levels from the Source in a File Share to SharePoint Migration

    On the “Mappings” part, “Permissions Levels”, appears 5 fields from Source to Destination (Red, Write, Modify, etc.)

    The question is if it’s possibly to add MORE fields on the source (List, etc., 6 o 7 fields) and NOT replace one of them. I mean, i want those fields and add others, like listing for example.
