  1. Permission backup

    Would be nice to be able to backup permission and use the backup to bring them back the way they were.

    2 comments  ·  05- Audit & Usage  ·  Flag idea as inappropriate…  ·  Admin →

    Since the auditing capabilities in Office 365 were moved to the unified auditing log, we can no longer use the audit report as we used to in ShareGate Desktop. At the time, we do not support the auditing through the unified log and are not planning to support it. We will re-evaluate the situation in the future.

    Thank you for your understanding.

  5. Rename scheduled tasks

    I rely on being able to rename my tasks. Otherwise, it's generic like "Copy 100 items from Documents to Documents". I need to know what site/subsite it is, and so on. It appears there is no way to rename a scheduled task, even when it's a recurring one. Only the migration report generated after can be renamed.

  6. Include Recycle Bin in Migration

    Could a migration be done with the “copy-site” command in order to copy items in recycle bin?

  7. 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

    Dear Sharegate Team,

    Do you plan to integrate MS Teams as Object Type into "Reporting" in a future release?

    LP Lavoie responded

    Yes indeed! We have just completed some exploration on this topic. Adding Teams inside the Explorer and in Reports would be relatively easy. The problem is that the O365 endpoints to manipulate them are still very limited (e.g. : Nothing to deal with Messages) so you would basically only be able to.. list them and modify basic settings / members.

    Still, we’re making plans for that right now. I’ll be bold and say you can expect the first bits to appear “soon” :-)

  10. 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.

  11. Compare Permissions

    It would be extremely helpful to have a compare permissioins. Often I have time where one user can do something but another user that should be able to can't. If I could compare the permissions between the two users I could get everyone up and running quicker.

    Also loving the new layout so far!

    • To be able to add/remove columns like "Site Description" or "User's Job Title"

    • To add properties like ID or Item URL

    • To include a "parent" column in the Excel Report for the PMR to show hierarchical structure

  13. Copy permission scopes from one object to another

    The idea would be to be able to copy the permissions as they are, from one object to another. Currently, this can only be done in a granular fashion with Quick Actions.

  17. Filter O365 Group Sites from Other Site Collection

    All of the groups SC now appear along my site collections, which make it a whole mess to actually get a Permissions Matrix Report of what I need. Could you divide the actual Site Collections from the Group Sites? As in Microsoft Admin Center?
