  1. only update links internal to the site collection migrating

    I would expect that links within a site are updated (which they are). But it is also update links to site that have not yet migrated. Creating extra work for our admins manually fixing these links post migration

  2. Add additional fields to the default key properties

    Hi,

    Can you add additional fields to the default key properties? Because we're always experiencing multiple matching item error. We cannot always fix the source list to fix this issue because that is client data. Please just add more default key properties for us to avoid encountering this issue often. It is very time-consuming to edit key properties for each list with multiple matching item error. This can be fixed by simply adding more fields to the default key properties of ShareGate.

  3. command to list subfolders in Box via PowerShell

    If I can offer some feedback or a suggestion. Having a command to list subfolders in Box via PowerShell would be tremendously helpful. Something like Get-BoxFolder and have a switch to display sub-folders or not. I’ve used ShareGate Desktop for several large Box migrations and that is something that would be very useful.

  10. Improve support of browser authentication

    There needs to be improvements around authentication in certain scenarios. We have a large Microsoft 365 tenant with over 100k users. Due to this, administration and support for SharePoint is provided at the agency level (the highest level of organizational division within the entity). So our specific use case is: 1) are not tenant administrators, 2) the tenant administrators will provide no support to us, 3) we use browser-based authentication. So what ends up happening in our case is that every time we open ShareGate we are forced to either log on or cancel individually for every one of our…

  12. Folder Mapping for more automation

    Automatically map Folder "My Files" on a Fileshare to Folder "Documents" in OD4B, so that everything in that Folder is always being copied to Documents in the users onedrive. Same with videos, music, pictures.

    You can easily automate and move more quickly to OD4B.

  16. Set a Default for Mapping Unresolved User and Groups

    To be able to default mapping of Unresolved users.
    For every migration I set in the mappings screen that Unresolved user and groups should be system account. If not it pulls my name into the modified by or create by field. It would be great to set a default, so I don't have to go in and set it for every migration. I do see that I can export a list and re-import it for another migration, but for just the Unresolved users that process is longer then searching for the account I want to use.

  17. Be able to add a column from the copy list feature

    I really like the function, however the lack of ability to automatically create the columns in the new site, along with any views is a real annoyance.

  18. Naming convention option in Copy Teams

    Hi Team, after started using new version 13.0.0, I realized about the need of migrate Teams over already existing ones in destination Tenant.
    Also, there is a different naming convention in the new Tenant, and I have several Teams to migrate for one acq (+900), so it is very hard to change the names one by one.
