  1. 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.

  2. Allow licensing per user instead of per machine

    We use virtual desktops (VDI) and it seems that your licences attach themselves to computer names. As we use VDI terminal our computer names are never the same. The way that you currently track licences make using ShareGate very unattractive.

    We purchase many licensed software solutions and all except ShareGate run in a VDI environment without having the deactivate the licence every time you use it. Could the license model be changed?

    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.

  7. 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…

  9. 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

  13. Delete the Default Content Types at the Destination

    When I copy a library with content types configured, the destination library is created with the source content types, plus the default Document content type.

    Can the copy function ensure it only creates the source library content types when doing a copy? Not the destination content type.

  17. 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.

  18. Ability to Migrate Empty Values or Non-Valid Values for Required 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.

  19. 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.
