  1. 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?

        This was not an easy decisions, but we had had to make the difficult choice. There are less and less SharePoint 2007 versions out there and the “plumbing” for that platform is immensely different from SharePoint 2010+ versions.

        This meant we would have to re-write almost everything for SharePoint 2007 and decided to bring more reports and management features for the latest platforms instead.

        Thanks for taking the time and sharing your feedback.

      • Better explanation of the Insight flow

        it was not clear to me that emails would automatically start going out to site owners. I figured this was something I would have to turn on.

          1 comment  ·  16- Insights  ·  Flag idea as inappropriate…  ·  Admin →

          With Sharegate 8.2, which was released last week, we removed Insights from the application, including the extension that send email to your users. We realized the implementation wasn’t on point and we are going back to the drawing board.

          I’ll decline this suggestion since it’s no longer relevant, but we will ensure that next time we do something similar, everything is clearer for users.

          Thank you for your feedback, it’s always appreciated.

        • 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.

                When migrating and getting a lot of path too long messages, users may want to change folder names or structure. It would interesting if a folder structure tool could be made to easily change the folder hierarchy and names before the migration

                    • Export to Excel with PowerShell

                      The export to excel feature is available in the “Bulk edit” screen. I’d like to automate this through powershell as in have the powershell script export all the items in a list to excel (meta data of course, not the actual files).

                        • Generate Sharegate Excel Files Using Powershell

                          We would like to be able to generate Sharegate Excel files using powershell. This would greatly help in automating the entire proces of migration for the powershell modules we have built around all of the other Sharegate powershell commands.

                          I would like to be able to have a command that produces the intermediate excel file like you can generate from the UI.
                          Input params would be:
                          Network location , siteurl, documentlibrary name, propertymapping, contenttypemapping, outputfilename, outputfolder.

                          What would be even more awesome if you could think up a way to be able to insert Excel formulas into the propertymapping when…

                                      • Bring Back the Tabs in the Migration Tool

                                        My team really misses the tab that used to open to show the migration status. Now when you start a migration, there is no intuitive way to go back to the contents (source/destination) screen. Is there any way to bring back the tab?

                                          We haven’t actually brought back the tabs in the migration tool. However, you can now restore previous migrations from the All tasks panel.

                                          Also, restoring previous migration sessions will reload them with the options intact.

                                          We feel like this solution, while not exactly what asked for, should allows you to do what you want to do.

                                          If you have any other suggestion, don’t hesitate to contact us again.
