  1. eRoom Migration

    We have a need to migrate content from eRoom (7.5) to Microsoft SharePoint (2016) and wonder if Sharegate would be the right tool for the job. Appreciate if you could provide any information on this issue.

  2. Migration of Hummingbird's eDocs in SPO

    Just confirming that Sharegate, which we know and love, is unable to migrate Edocs from Hummingbird?

    Thanks for the confirmation. I was just hoping this would be added at some point. Hummingbird is especially difficult as the metadata is stored separately from the documents, and there is no export feature from the data store. I see if we can get a developer to export the docs to a file share and then maybe the customer will spring for a Sharegate license. ????

  3. Report on Incremental update data

    Run a kind of "pre-check" on Incremental migrations that will return the data to be copied (regardless of warning or error). The report should be able to tell me how much data will be part of an incremental update

  9. Spreadsheet driven migration to a apply to all versions

    When using the spreadsheet export/import method, primarily to update properties and Content types, it would be useful on export to have an option to 'Apply to all versions'. this would prevent the exported spreadsheet having 50 versions of the same file.
    if as you need to migrate a library and manipulate its metadata, the spreadsheet can get hard to manage.
    Setting a values for a single entry that updates all versions on import would really make things easier..
    Thanks!

  13. Document name in Audit Report

    When running an audit report, it would be nice in the UI to have the column "name" or "title" for documents because right now all you see is version and the location that points to the library. You don't know which document it regards to unless you export the report where you have the full path.

  15. Stop Attemptong to Resolve Users That Don't Exist in the Target Site

    I'm attempting to migrate a site to O365. Aside from throttling that occurs, I continue to see in the Processing message that users that have already been deems as unresolved apparently continue to have attempts to resolve. This would appear to Microsoft as an overburdensome number of calls that could lead to throttling. Please add the ability to not resolve users continously.

  16. Extract a Report for Document Views

    In SharePoint there are two fields Viewlifetime and ViewsRecent

    They are accessible by the Rest API.
    Microsofts new Site activity page shows you a visual of file hits using Views recent but no values.
    I have fed this info back to Microsoft.
    Would be good if we could pull this info off for an entire site or selected document libraries as part of reports.

  18. Long Running Tasks UX Needs Improvement

    With the newer version of Sharegate, the UX for long running tasks is bad. When I try to run a Permissions matrix across our tenant, it takes 12-20 hours. That is probably something that can't be changed due to the limits of physics and Office 365 throttling. However, having a "Loading permissions..." screen with no information is not helpful. The "task manager" tells me number of items and errors, but with now way of knowing what the erros are, I have to wait for the entire job to complete to know whether the task is worth waiting for. A specific…
