  2. Improve file share analysis

    Hi, can you confirm whether it's possible to add additional columns that pick up existing metadata when using the "Migration - Plan - Source Analysis - File Share" report. In additional to the default columns I'd like to find out when a document was last created and last modified from a File Share. Is this possible? Also can you confirm whether ShareGate can analyse file content to identify sensitive content before migration. Thank you.

  4. Allow PowerShell manipulation of the Metadata section of the Copy Options

    the New-PropertyTemplate cmdlet doesn't offer to affect the "Metadata" section of Copy Options during PowerShell migrations. Having the option to set a column to "Set Mapped Value or Default" through the script would allow us to have more control over a PowerShell migration

  5. URL Mapping for Copy and Restructure

    One of the biggest problems in copies or cleaning up a SharePoint is hardcoded URL's. Often users just don't realize what a relative URL is which can create problems with AAM's especialy for alternate routes (external vs internal) to the sites. It would be great if the mapping functionality would allow you to remap harcoded URL's to a new ones including a pre built template to simply cut off the begining and make it relative. For example http://mysite.ld.com/bananas to just ./bananas. It could also help when dealing with site copies too and from the same URL. The target can be…

  6. Merge option not persisted when running a pre-check

    In the last couple of site copies I have done, if I choose the Merge option then run a check then go back to check the options again before I run it for real, the Merge option is no longer set.

  8. Copy Views

    To have the ability to copy only the views from a list to another would be a great addition to ShareGate Desktop.

  9. Option to not run Nintex workflows during migration

    Regarding the Nintex migration, your tool works great. It migrates the lists and workflows well. The only reason I brought it up is because at my previous employer I had to run support and ultimately oversaw every Nintex form/workflow migration. There were only two significant “oops” moments from developers before I took charge. It’s totally a user error, but one I thought you might want to be aware of for UX purposes.

    Instance 1:

    Our developer forgot to remove the test data from one of our test environments before migrating to production. Therefore, when the content was copied it fired…

  10. Multilingual User Interface

    Since we believe that many people are using MUI interfaces we really would appreciate if ShareGate could handle that. It is really a lot of work to do manually – you have to rename every single item

  11. Mapping property values

    I'd like to be able to map individual property values. Currently we have a large number of previous document versions with outdated values that are not valid in the new system and need a more finely tuned solution than just having the same default value for every instance

  16. Migrate SharePoint calendar to Office 365 Group calendar

    A standard SharePoint calendar, on-premise or else, could be used as an Office 365 Group Calendar. Some users might wish to migrate their old team site calendar as such.

  17. Add a warning that workflows can be triggered during a Copy Content

    Item level migration with workflow triggers the workflow which is not expected. There should be warning at least.

  18. custom views in document sets

    In ShareGate Desktop, custom views selected at the list level are applied within documents sets as well. I would like the same behavior as in SharePoint that no longer applies the view when opening a document set to display all items within it.

  19. Create a new PowerShell Command to use the Export metadata feature

    Some users would need to be able to generate the Excel Spreadsheet for their metadata using PowerShell. When automating a complex migration, having an export for all the lists with a foreach loop would be a powerful way to take full control of the data during the migration project.
