  1. Add option to run scheduled tasks now

    Had a report scheduled to run in 10 minutes but wanted to kick it off now. Had to edit the report to have it run a minute after my computer clock was showing. Should have an option to "run now" or a check box instead of trying to manipulate the timer. Thanks!

  4. Button for "Delete all" in Tasks view

    I would like to delete all my tasks at once, as I have multiple pages worth of tasks, and it would take a long time to go through them all, even with 500 items per page.

  5. 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.

  6. Forgetting and/or Not Remembering Site (credentials) options in Sharegate Explorer

    When connecting to a site in the Migration tool, you have options to not remember the site, and you can forget sites that are already remembered.

    It would be mandatory to not preserve that information in the Sharegate Explorer as well for some users. It seems to go against policy to do so.

  7. 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.

  9. Migrate different Teams template (such as EDU Teams)

    Right now, the tool only copies using the standard Teams template. This feature request is for a method to use and preserve different Teams template such as those of the educational O365 suite.

  10. 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! :)

  14. Improve Teams copy screen load time

    The interface to open the Teams site to select one to copy gets hung up - I think because we have a large number of Teams sites. We have 12460 sites and it seems to try to populate the details for all of the sites up to the point where I have scrolled to. I'm scrolling instead of searching because the search option seemed to freeze the whole application so I think there is just a general issue with large result lists on the page where you select the Teams site you would like to copy. It has been "thinking"…

  15. Improve performance when there is a lot of teams

    I want to try the new Teams Migration feature, and we have about 35000 Teams - It takes about 1 hour to search that list, and when I finally get the Team I'm searching for, I can't select it

  17. Migrate SharePoint 2010 workflows to SharePoint 2013 engine or Flow

    Microsoft is disabling SP2010 workflows on Nov 1st in SharePoint Online. It would be extremely valuable if ShareGate could be enhanced to allow migration/conversion of SP2010 workflows in SharePoint Online to either the 2013 workflow engine or Microsoft Flow to assist customers who have a large base of workflows to get converted in such a short timeframe.

  18. See users who have permission through a sharing link

    A user has access to a specific library folder that was granted by a Sharing link which requires they be internal users. SharePoint interface then shows me the associated users and with manage links hyperlink to administer. However these users do not show up in the Matrix report. My expectation would be to see the user in the matrix report since they appear in SharePoint.

  20. Same Rule as the Filer When Migrating Folders (Time Range)

    Right now, Sharegate is migrating the entire folder structure with a lot of empty folders regardless of if there are active files (modified in the past 18 months) within them. I would like Sharegate to apply the same rule on the folders when none of the file under it are migrated. In those cases, the folder should be ignored.
