  1. Make automatic resolvement of users an option

    Within ShareGate, if you do not provide an explicit mapping for an user, ShareGate will try to resolve the user automatically by using a decision tree as described here:
    https://migration-tool.sharegate.com/hc/en-us/articles/360032616471
    When it does not find an automatic map, it will copy the metadata over (i.e. John Smit created the file.

    It is however nog possible to disable this automatic mapping. Whenever users leave the company and no longer exist within AD, you want to keep this metadata and as such, you should have the option to disable this search for the account and have the metadata copied directly.

  3. Report content for which a specified user/group has no access

    I wanted to run a ShareGate report to find site/library locations in SharePoint Online that our CEO does not have access to, so I can quickly locate them and grant the CEO access. However ShareGate does not support this reporting requirement. I think it's important for SharePoint admins to be given the option to see all permissions in a report, including locations that specified users/groups are restricted from accessing. This would also enable us to show various management via the report that specific users/groups have been successfully excluded from their restricted content.

  4. Groups listing of explicit permissions for whole Permission Matrix Report

    In the Permissions Matrix report, when all expanded to show group members, it would be much better to have a separate section of the report that only shows the various groups' members once, rather than repeating them on everything. Ideally the report would then just list the group names once, and then explicit permissions listed individually. Does that make sense?

    Same with the Excel export. Possibly export the report with 2 tabs, one is the matrix the other is the list of members of all groups.

  5. Use of graph Api (app registration) for access on Spo and MS Teams

    Use of graph Api (app registration) for access on Spo and MS Teams
    Giving admin roles for migration is not appropriate however granting access via graph Api is possible, when will sharegate starts working such requirements.

  6. Migrate permissions from one group to another

    We need the ability to migrate current permissions from one permission group into a new permission group. We are currently moving our collab sites to SPO. New permission groups are created with the site and we want to move the members of the groups in collab into the new group created in SPO. As it stands today, we need to retype the users in or move an old permission group into SPO.

  8. During "Copy User Permission" on subsite, just add user to SP Group with access to subsite

    When using "Copy User Permission" with the "Copy Group membership" on a subsite, the tool will add the target user to all SP Groups in the site collection, not just those that the target subsite has access to. This can lead to a user having access on sites not scoped for the "Copy User Permissions" operation

  9. Convert SP group members into M365 group members

    Not sure if this is possible, but make it easy to convert who is in a SharePoint Group and add them to a team membership group.
