  4. Migrate SharePoint 2010 workflows to SharePoint 2013 engine or Flow

    Microsoft is disabling SP2010 workflows on Nov 1st in SharePoint Online. It would be extremely valuable if ShareGate could be enhanced to allow migration/conversion of SP2010 workflows in SharePoint Online to either the 2013 workflow engine or Microsoft Flow to assist customers who have a large base of workflows to get converted in such a short timeframe.

  5. 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.

  6. Being able to revist a Export metadata session.

    I've setup a export to spreadsheet with field mappings etc, then run a test export of a small number of records. Thinking I'd be able to revist the session as you can with migration.. it appears not!
    This would be very useful...

    Cheers

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

    Right now, the tool only copies using the standard Teams template. This feature request is for a method to use and preserve different Teams template such as those of the educational O365 suite.

  11. ShareGate Desktop Certification in Migration

    Are there any Certifications available for ShareGate which can be show cased in Resume to get confidence in Migration Activities?
    I see many products have their own certification like Nintex.
    It would be good to launch certain certifications for this product as well, so companies can get to know migration skill.

  13. Copy Structure with dependency knowledge

    I can't understand why I get errors that a list doesn't exist when it's processing a lookup field, even when the dependent list was already selected as a list to migrate. That seems like just doing some simple dependency logic ahead of time.

    Now, I have to run the same migration 3 times to slowly migrate the objects up the "dependency tree" , each migration has less and less errors, this just seems silly.

  14. Copy if different as a Copy Option

    Add an option to be able to copy all items that are different between the Source and Destination. Currently, only the incremental copy exists which will copy items that are newer at the Source. The request here is to be able to copy any items that aren't the same between the source and the destination, not only more recent

  15. Preserve the modern home.aspx page when migrating to a new modern site

    I'm having trouble migrating to Modern Sites. I have nearly 1000 site collections/subsite in a SharePoint 2016 farm that I'm migrating to SharePoint Online. However, we're wanting to keep the modern look and feel. No matter what mapping settings and options I try, I cannot accomplish this. The end result is a SharePoint Online site collection that is using the STS#3 template, but looks like SharePoint 2016. The issue appears to take place at the end of the copy content operation when the home.aspx file is copied over to the Site Pages library. Is there any way to change this…
