  1. Generate a .CSV File Instead of .xlsx on "Export Site"

    For every library / list that is exported to a folder, there is also an “xlsx” file created. Do you think it would be possible to have a CSV file instead?

  2. Preserve the "open documents in client application" Site Feature During Migration

    Some users expect the site/site collection features to be mirrored at the destination in a site migration. Currently Sharegate will only activate features that have content that depends on them, and something like "open documents in client application" can be left turned off, leading to the documents opening in browser by default. The users then have to change the values manually, or with a report in Sharegate.

  3. All Tasks Report - Audit report filter

    I noticied that the Type Audit Report is NOT able to be filtered when you look at All Tasks History. I don't know if this is intentional or not. I only have "report" to filter on and it shows Report, yet NOT Audit Report, which is NOT an option for filtering!

  4. Enable backup for PWA sites

    I had a client ask if Sharegate could be used to back up PWA sites. The main reason was less for disaster recovery, and more to allow for reversion to a prior project plan when one gets screwed up.

  5. When creating a report, add option to open folder, not just open file

    The only options right now are "open file" and "close". I often use Sharegate on a RDP connection to a Windows 2008 server that has no Office installed. Would like to be able to copy the file from the "Documents" folder into my desktop. Adding this button saves me a few clicks :)

  8. Update PMR to have all permission levels in a single column instead of check marks

    Some users might not want the permissions listed with check marks in the exported Excel file. Having a single column called permissions and then writing the levels (i.e.: Full Controle, Contribute) instead would be more simple to read and streamlined for certain users

  9. Report on pages information and data

    Users often look for options to report on pages based on web parts, title, url, and other data they may contain. It would be a great addition to have a pages site object with all these filters and possible columns added to the reporting

  10. Option to Make it Impossible to Change List Experience

    We need an option so that Sharegate will not change the list experience when performing an incremental. In our process, we QA and Perform UAT on sites. In this process we will change InfoPath Libraries and Custom List Forms to Classic view. On finale cut-over, an incremental is performed to get the latest data. The incremental then changes the List experience back to modern view.

    Our requirements are such that all sites that run properly in Modern View are set this way. If a list or Library requires classic view, then we manually change it. With the current features in…

  11. Mapping Target Audience like Groups or Users

    When I copy a page ("Copy Contents") I got the following message: Error with property 'Target Audiences': The Target Audience 'Connections Owners' could not be found..
    I did mapped the "Connection Owners" to an appropriate group already and on the advanced options unselected "Preserve permissions" and other options as well. Please see the attached information.

  12. Migrate Custom Actions (SPD)

    Are migration of custom actions (those that show up in the list) from sharepoint 2013 to Office 365 supported?

    These are custom actions you can generate for a list and add them to the ribbon of the list. In SPD, look at a list and it is the very bottom box.

  13. Export/import

  15. Change Highlighting of Items in Pre-Migration Copy Structure Interface

    In the pre-migration interface of a Copy Structure operation, it's possible to select and highlight items in the source and destination lists if you change Site Objects to Lists and Libraries or to Groups, for example. The highlighting it meant to allow selection to view the properties of an item but leads users to believe that they represent and "from -> to" copy content operation where they select source and destination libraries. This should be changed to avoid misunderstandings.

  16. Migration - Select Source UI Improvement

    Hello ShareGate team.
    Thank you for keeping consider the improvement of user experience in the product features and the UI.
    As you noticed to us, now the Migration - Select Source UI are mostly backed.
    However, I still felt some inconvenience to operate (select the target source) in the UI.
    For the "copy Structure", after connect to site, the UI change to select target site.
    With hierarchy site-structure, usually the target site is in deep(lower) level of the structure. So, selecting target site require repetition of clicking upper-level of site and operate scroll bar.
    To reduce the stress, I am…

  20. Options to Not Copy in Bulk

    If I have to copy a list, where the IDs are very important, it is not possible to use Sharegate. As you copy in bulk, the IDs in the new list become jumbled and there is no longer correlation between the item id and the actual item.

    I had to do this for a list with more than 400 elements and ended up, copying each item one at a time.

    It would be magnificent, if you could add an option to copy items individually, ie. copy item 1, verify that item 1 has been copied then copy item 2, verify…
