  2. 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!

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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…

  13. Split Out the File Name into its Own Column in Reports

    Separate the out the file name into its own column in reports / content migration for easy rename functionality.

    This would allow an ability for customers to easily see there files names without the entire path and having to split columns.

    Also allow for easy renaming of files when copying content.

    Have Sharegate recompile the path on import.

    Saves what we currently have to do, which is copy paths to a different sheet. Use text to columns to find the file name then have to concatenate it back into the excel sheet.

  16. Add a "Preserve Version History" Option to Advanced Copy of Copy Structure

    The “Preserve Version History” option is only available through Copy Content, not Copy Structure. The problem if I copy a site with a lot of versions for each list items, even if I limit versions to 1, we still load the whole version history and then trim it down. That can slow down things considerably.

  19. Create SharePoint Group and Copy to Multiple Selected Site Collections

    I wonder on Premises or possibly in Office 365, if it would be helpful to add a SharePoint Group to ALL Site Collections in the Farm / Tenant.
    I added a security group to replace the "Everyone" and or "Domain Users" group with my own "Everyone - CompanyNameHere" and so if people type in "EVeryone" we strongly encourage them to use the "CoName" one instead. We will run checks to work on this and ask them to update or we'll manually do so, however adding it to the almost 30 site collections is a SLOW process. Thank you!

  20. Redirects during Migration Job

    It would be nice to be able to select whether or not the source site you are migrating from could automatically provide a redirect to visiting users after migration is complete. Something the admin will have to decide during the migration setup perhaps? So when users visit the site, they are redirected to the newer site.
