  4. 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! :)

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  14. Options to Automatically Transform Paths Too Long

    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

  15. 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.

  16. App Authentication

    Publish an app in the SharePoint store with the permissions set to full control for the site collection and allow app only calls. Then add an option for App Authentication in the ShareGate desktop app that uses the ClientId and ClientSecret from the app to authenticate.

    A site collection admin can then add the app to their site, and allow any user with ShareGate to perform the migration.

    Benefits include not having to log in, not having to grant site collection admin access, and the metadata would appear as ShareGate instead of the user performing the action.

  18. 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!

  19. Add a Checked Out Date column to the Checked-out document report

    We use the 'Checked Out Document' report to track the checked out pages. Could you please add an addtional 'Checked Out Date' column to be available via All Columns section. The checked out report can be very useful if the field is to be added.

  20. Include Copy Content Filter to Copy Structure

    We want to migrate a site collection to O365, but I only want to migrate content that has been updated or created in the last year, so I want to use the Copy Structure feature, but I want to see the filters available in the Copy Content option. Would be great if the filter options were available in both options.
