          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!

          • Move List with PowerApps Customized form

            Hi,

            Can we move list with PowerApps Customized form to another site using ShareGate? Currently it is not possible in PowerApps to tag along its customized form once its list is moved.

            • 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.

                • 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 folder s.

                        We know this is a feature that a lot of you want. We would also really like to add it to ShareGate Desktop.

                        However, as of right now, we are facing technical challenges which make it really hard to do so.

                        We will keep looking into it and will add it when possible.

                        Don’t hesitate to suggest other features as we really like to have input from our users.

                      • Import Permissions Matrix Report

                        • Preserve the Toolbar Settings of a Home Page Web Part

                          Currently, this setting is not preserved. I'd like Sharegate to preserve the toolbar settings for webparts.

                          • 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! :)

                                  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?
