  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  10. Web Part Report

    It would be very useful to undergo a report for Webparts within a site collection.

    Checking which webparts are open and in use within a site collection if important for migrating accross platforms. This type of report would be VERY useful for SharePoint teams as it would highlight sites which need attention from the developers (if a webpart is custom for example) to ensure they dont break.

    Please can this be added?

  11. Export the PMR to PDF

    It would be useful to be able to export the permissions matrix report as a PDF file, as well as a spreadsheet.

    The hierarchical view on the screen is useful to some to wrap their brains around the permissions.

  13. Migration of Attachments from List to New Library with Metadata

    Some users might want to move from a list with attachments to a document library. It could be interesting to have a GUI option to do so.

  14. 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?

  16. 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.

  19. 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.
