  1. Include the option to choose the site title and URL when merging sites

    When merging two sites with Copy Structure and Content, ShareGate Desktop defaults to the destination name and URL without another choice.

    It would be good to add the option to choose between the source and destination names, or even add a new one.

  2. Add Google Drive File ID to the migration report following a Google Workspace migration

    It is a consistent ask of our users to provide mapping reports where we show them the Google Drive URL and the new SharePoint URL. Having the Google Drive File ID in these reports would allow us to perform a simple Join between a this report and an export report from Google to generate these mappings without risk of incorrect info.

  3. Show all warnings, so a clean migration can happen

    Hi ShareGate support,

    During a recent migration we had a bad experience of losing data, that could have been picked up if we saw all the errors/warnings in the UI.

    Sharegate showed 1 Warning (See Sharegate-Migrationwarning-1.png) when in fact there were 2 warnings (See Sharegate-Migrationwarning-2.png).

    The 1st warning is:
    'The time zone at the destination is not the same as the source.’
    This is also the only warning shown in the UI on the first screen.
    However when the item details are opened we can see that there are 2 warnings. We missed this.

    The 2nd warning is more important…

  4. Bulk renaming of Teams

    My company uses a suffix on team/group names (based on the AD 'department' attribute). So when migrating teams from another tenant, into our own, we need to rename the teams with a fitting suffix.

    Of course a lot can be achieved with Powershell. But from a Power-user perspective it would be great if this option was added directly in ShareGate. As of today it is only possible to rename each team one by one. Which is quite time consuming.

  5. Support migration of translated pages

    When copying a SitePages library with translated pages (Microsoft std functionality) you will loose the connection from the source page -> translated page.
    Please update so it will do that, otherwise it's not possible to copy a translated site.

  8. Please display Destination Path in migration reports, also if items are skipped.

    When importing files based on Excel-file input, folders might be added to DestinationPath column., and there is currently no way to reconstruct the complete url to the already existing item, based on the other properties of migration report item details.

  9. Download/export content to blob storage instead of local disk

    Our org are heavy users of SharePoint, however with SharePoint storage being expensive, we tend to archive old data (or archive all data from old, unneeded SharePoint sites).

    We use ShareGate to download document libraries from SharePoint, and manually upload them into our Azure Blob Storage accounts.

    Is there a possibility that we can link ShareGate with Azure Blob or Azure Storage accounts? Having direct access to migrate and move data to Blob storage would save a large amount of time since we wouldn't have to wait for large amounts of data to download, and then spend more time waiting…

  13. Copy the Title of the LinkTitle column when copying lists

    If you rename the "Title" column using the modern interface, it will actually rename the "LinkTitle" column. It seems that copying a list with ShareGate doesn't copy this.

  18. Option to disable migrating users as Members and Owners of M365 Groups

    During a site collection merge operation into the site collection of a M365 Group, ShareGate Desktop will grab the members of the source SP Group "Members" and promote them to "Members" of the M365 Group. There should be an opt-out feature that a user can uncheck if they don't want this to happen

  19. Notify users when migrating important structural items, such as homepage

    Please notify us when a migration will overwrite important structural items.

  20. Automatically split migration between multiple instances of ShareGate Desktop

    As we perform more tenant migration work I would like to see a 'Master - Drone' capability in multi license environments. For example, instead of manually dividing a list of Teams or OneDrive sites into multiple batches, I would like to be able to give a Master node the list of all sites, or even the ability to 'Select All' from the GUI and instruct the Master to divvy up the work to one of X drone installations. This would provide a tenfold increase in migration setup productivity as well as the potential to more effectively balance the workload than…
