  6. Advanced item version management

    Add more features for versioning reporting and management, such as:

    - Report on versioning for each list and (especially) library.
    The report should show the versioning settings of the lists and all files with multiple versions with their sizes, sum-total size of all versions for each file. Each version counts against the storage quota of the sites, so this report would be useful to find out which sites are taking up a lot of space because of versioning.
    - Revert all files back to a version that is dated prior to specified date.
    - Delete all versions except the n…

    Though we’ve had support for Exchange Public Folders in the past, we decided to remove it and not support it with our tool.

    The intricacies of Exchange and especially Public Folders migration can be quite complicated. We did not feel that we were bringing a good experience to our customers.

    Though one should never say never, so we’ll keep you posted if there is an update. Thanks for taking the time!

  9. Empty Folder Report

    Would like to have a report that would list folders and/or document libraries that have been created but are empty. Right now I'm looking at easily finding empty folders.

    This way, we could easily delete them.

  11. Bulk Edit Metadata (on a site, from the term store)

    It would be useful to have a report to get all metadata for a whole site, but thinking further, If the Bulk Edit Metadata would work on a site level, this would allow more flexibility with the destination paths and general management of a full site and would become an easy method to get full metadata exports.

  15. Migration of Default.aspx Page Without Migrating the Site

    Currently, the root site needs to be migrated to move its corresponding default.aspx page. I'd like to be able to migrate the Default.aspx page alone.

  17. Preserve the Toolbar Settings of a Home Page Web Part

  18. Replace/Map user across environment without doing a migration

    I see that I can map users during a migration process to change, but is there any way I can update just the user? Like, replace my name all over their site collection with a different user in an easy way with this tool?

  20. Audit report - exclude users

    - exclude system accounts

    Good morning! I wonder if there is a way to have the Audit Reports have a checkbox to say "don't show system accounts" or "WE" can build them "ignore the search crawler account and the system account" as a checkbox so my results do'nt need to be filtered. I have a user who had permissions changed and I am looking for it. I want to find out which user / group moved it / changed it and I know it's not the search account or ME / system account. Just offering a sugestion! :)
