  2. Quick Switch Between Copy Structure and Content

    A simple quick switch option between content and structure copy for the same source and destination sites without reconnecting and login in again. Going from structure to content would only ask for the specific source and destination (lib or list etc)

    Can you tell us more on what you are trying to do in terms of “Forms” migration ?

    Note: We are currently looking into Microsoft Forms Web Part migration in Office 365.

  10. 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.

  16. Disable Workflows when Copying or Importing Content

    When using the copy content option to do an incremental migration on a library, the approval workflow on this library was started for all items in the library. Is this expected behavior? If yes, this information should really be provided as I was unable to find anything on your site referencing this or what to do to prevent it from happening. This can’t be something we would want to happen. It had quite a big impact on completing a migration since it created a huge problem I had to clean up.

  17. 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.

  18. Add Custom Rules and Filters During Migration or Import

    [Admin note: Merged all suggestion related to more complex filtering during Migration or Import]

    • Filter on full file names instead of just exensions.
    • Filter with wildcards
    • Include / Exclude folder by name using the custom templates
    • Exclude specific (sub) folders based on names
    • Timestamp/range filters - last modified date and created date
    • List or site template filters
    • Filter by property (name, type, etc.)
    • Filter by size
    • Filter empty objects (sites, libraries, folders, ...)
    • Exclude specific type of objects (Microfeed...)

    We feel like our migration experience is quite good right now and we don’t plan on doing custom rules and filters for now.

    Some of those can already be done using PowerShell, SharePoint views and other means.

    We will eventually reevaluate this once we advance further in our roadmap.

  19. Compare Two Environments

    Quickly compare source and destination content in order to see what needs to be incrementally migrated and to prove to customers that every item from the source made it to destination.

    To be compared:
    -items
    -site settings
    -site features
    -lists and libraries

  20. 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.
