  1. Archiving of Tasks

    Having the ability to archive completed tasks rather than going through and exporting then deleting the tasks (which is time consuming)

  2. Changes to the Tasks screen

    Improve response time for your completed tasks. It can take MANY MINUTES For it to load. I delete teh sharegate desktp uses .... on disk, yet having 500MB is a bit, yet I can't keep deleting them over and over. Maybe allow me to save a few days or so. Can you cache the completed or happening tasks within the past few days. 99% of the time I want to know what I am working on TODAY or yesterday! Maybe reduce the items per page to like 5 or so instead of 50.

  3. Cache filters of the All tasks screen

    When I hit the back button PLEASE cache the filters for "your completed tasks" as it takes AGES To load. PLease, I clicked on the incorrect option and it is as if I started a new check.

  4. Define task name in Options

    The ability to rename existing tasks is a good thing. It would be much better if naming a task could be done proactively in the UI. I believe this can be done in PowerShell. However, since come tasks cannot be started via PowerShell (e.g. Permission Matrix Reports), this ability is limited.

    Being able to set a Task Name before starting a job, via the UI, would make it possible to organize tasks instead of having to manually open each task to determine what it was for prior to renaming it (see attached).

  7. For Copy Structure jobs, allow "Source List Name" as an available column in Tasks

    Currently it only shows the source site. Determining the source list(s) used requires opening each Task manually.

  9. Report Request: Migration Activities

    I would like to generate a report on actions in my task list using the details on the ShareGate Desktop Tasks page and use the high-level information for things like progress and status reports. I do not see an option in my app. If it does not exist, please consider creating one and/or the option to make one in the custom report’s options. If it does exist, please send a link that I can reference.

  10. Scheduled Tasks - be able to 'select all' or export for reference

    It would be fantastic if you'd allow for the selection of all items (drag to highlight) or export of the scheduled task list for informational purposes. We've had to delete our AppData a few times, and now have to reinstall, and it would be great if we could save the scheduled tasks as a reference for rebuilding.

    Thanks!

  11. Better task names

    I'm doing some migrations and would really like to see exactly from which library/site/list that i'm migrating to and from.
    i don't find "Copy 1 item from Network-
    Voice.... to Network..." very useful. the name of the item would be much better.

  12. Clean Orphaned User Enhancement # 6

    Here is a feature/enhancement that would be very beneficial to our very large/complex company:

    The ability to change the tasks view to show URL as opposed to the Site Name/Title - for example "Orphaned User Account on http://example.com/sites/example" instead of site title for reference purposes.

    Because when you have 300,000 site collections the site name/title are not descriptive enough to find again in the Tasks list.

  13. Add a default library option to the automatic export of reports

    Automatic exporting reports is a good feature. But is there any way to configure the destination path fixed, instead of configuring the reports path every time ?

  14. Button for "Delete all" in Tasks view

    I would like to delete all my tasks at once, as I have multiple pages worth of tasks, and it would take a long time to go through them all, even with 500 items per page.

  15. Add option to run scheduled tasks now

    Had a report scheduled to run in 10 minutes but wanted to kick it off now. Had to edit the report to have it run a minute after my computer clock was showing. Should have an option to "run now" or a check box instead of trying to manipulate the timer. Thanks!

  17. Filters for auto-export of migration reports

    Under migration options it, would be nice to define filter criteria for the export (same as when filtering a migration report in the UI).
    If running scheduled task, perhaps only reports containing errors and warnings are candidates for export to a library. This makes it possible to limit the amount of data in the reports library (number of items and file size)

  18. Show size of data migrated in Migration Report

    I want to be able to see how much of the content was migrated at a certain point during the migration, and at the end in the migration report. Currently, the MR does not display any information about size of items migrated.

  19. Ability to Run a Scheduled Task Again

    I have an audit report that I run weekly for a site collection and it times out from time to time. Is there a way to "retry now" to run the report in the All Tasks, Tasks window. There is Refresh, Add, export, etc. is there one that can be set, or when you open it "failed, want to retry now?" Thank you.

  20. Show list of Success on Pre-Check report

    I'd like to have the ability to run a Pre-Check migration report that will show not only the Warning and Errors, but the successes as well, just like an actual Migration report would.
