  2. Diagnostics for Powershell tasks

    My migration has to be managed through tasks initiated in Powershell, and I have had some issues that needed ShareGate support, however the trace diagnostics only apply to the ShareGate app UI, the PS initated tasks don't get traced. Replicating the scenario through the UI and tracing it was laborious and futile.

  3. Ability to Run a Scheduled Task Again

    I have an audit report that I run weekly for a site collection and it times out from time to time. Is there a way to "retry now" to run the report in the All Tasks, Tasks window. There is Refresh, Add, export, etc. is there one that can be set, or when you open it "failed, want to retry now?" Thank you.

  4. Support Column Formatting JSON Templates

    You can use column formatting to customize how fields in SharePoint lists and libraries are displayed. To do this, you construct a JSON object that describes the elements that are displayed when a field is included in a list view, and the styles to be applied to those elements. The column formatting does not change the data in the list item or file; it only changes how it’s displayed to users who browse the list. Anyone who can create and manage views in a list can use column formatting to configure how view fields are displayed.

  10. Web Part Report

    It would be very useful to undergo a report for Webparts within a site collection.

    Checking which webparts are open and in use within a site collection if important for migrating accross platforms. This type of report would be VERY useful for SharePoint teams as it would highlight sites which need attention from the developers (if a webpart is custom for example) to ensure they dont break.

    Please can this be added?

  11. 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.

  13. Migration of empty/non-valid values and choice fields

    It would be nice if Sharegate could migrate lists that have either empty values for required fields and choice values that are no longer in the list settings for the choice field . This feature would inventory all choice and required fields, enable the Allow adding to choice values, remove required field, migrate the data, and then disable the allow adding to choice values and enable the required fields if applicable. This would save time for the admin who has to write/run scripts to take care of this.

  18. 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.
