  3. Support powershell 7 in ShareGate

    Usually, I have a mixed environment on-prem + SPO, so I use Powershell 5 for on-prem, and Powershell 7 for SPO with installed pnp modules to do some additional steps. Would be nice if the ShareGate module could work in PowerShell 7+ currently I receive there

    Version 17.1.3 (Assembly 17.1.3.0, Build 2703)

    [0] PS-105-405 (RetryFailed: False) --- Sharegate.Common.Exceptions.SGUnsupportedPowerShellVersionException: ShareGate doesn't support PowerShell version 7.2.5. Please use PowerShell 5.1 instead.

  5. About security group mapping

    Please change the specification to unique ID search instead of display name search when mapping security groups in site migration.
    If there are multiple security groups with the same display name, an unexpected security group may be assigned.

  6. Transfer the task to new machine

    Unable to Transfer the task to a new machine. This creates an issue with Incremental Copy. it would be great to have this feature enabled as earlier as possible. The step mentioned in below link doesn't work.

  7. Check File size in a incremental sync

    We had some errors in a few migrations and the files were created but with 0 kb file size. ShareGate only checks the modified data and not the file size. Because of that there is no possibility to fix this errors with incremental sync.

    Please include a file size check into the incremental sync to resolve issues.

  9. Configure links in task names (PowerShell)

    Out-of-the-box tasks have embeded links that can be clicked to navigate to the source and destination libraries.

    If we create a task in PowerShell and assign it a custom name, the ability to configure clickable links does not seem to work/exist.

    It would be interesting if the -TaskName parameter of the Copy Content command could be used to create clickable links just like the ootb functionality does.

  11. mail

    Ability to migrate emails from one tenant to another one.

    This is why I will not choose ShareGate instead of Avepoint Fly.
    With this feature included, you could see a lot of new clients for sure.

  12. Teams Reporting: get a report of all Teams channels

    Get a report of every channel (name and ID) in your tenant. We group projects under "Master" Client Teams, so it's not easy to find a project if you don't already know the Team it's under. ShareGate already has a Teams report with a channel count; I need to go one level deeper and get a report of every channel, regardless of Team.
    This is possible, but a real pain, using the Graph, but having it in ShareGate would make my job a lot easier.
    Thanks for considering!

  13. User mapping by UPN

    When migrating from On-Prem to SharePoint ShareGate does not use the users UPN instead either using property extraction or if that fails NTFS metadata. The issue is allot of the time when this fails it pick up the SAM account name creating an orphaned user in SharePoint.

    Could Sharegate not also check the local AD for a matching UPN for the user as if using Azure AD sync this should (in theory) match.

  15. Include file size in export metadata for file shares

    We are looking to import large amounts of data from file shares to SharePoint.
    Before we start this data migration, we need to know the sizes of the files.
    I have done a trial run and used the 'Export Metadata' button to export the file share meta to a spread sheet. That is fine, but the data does not include the file size of the files stored on the file share. Can file size be included in the data provided by the 'Export Metadata' feature?

  17. Improve Teams copy screen load time

    The interface to open the Teams site to select one to copy gets hung up - I think because we have a large number of Teams sites. We have 12460 sites and it seems to try to populate the details for all of the sites up to the point where I have scrolled to. I'm scrolling instead of searching because the search option seemed to freeze the whole application so I think there is just a general issue with large result lists on the page where you select the Teams site you would like to copy. It has been "thinking"…

  18. T2T migration SharePoint to onedrive shortcut

    T2T migration SharePoint to onedrive shortcut

    Our new users enjoy the feature, adding a shortcut to SharePoint library in OneDrive. And some of them built complex documents links .having a way to inventory those shortcut might help to prepare the migration (inventory users, library, target communication).
    Thanks

  19. Export licenses activations

    Since the license activation page was revamped and moved to Sharegate.com we are unable to export the data to spreadsheet, nor copy the data from the page into Excel in a workable format - the pasting goes across multiple lines and runs the data together without spaces in between, rendering the data useless without manually going in to fix it.

    Please either add an export to spreadsheet option, or fix it so we can copy from the page and paste into excel formatted correctly across multiple columns:

    Activated by

    Email

    Activation name
    Activation date

  20. Improve performance when there is a lot of teams

    I want to try the new Teams Migration feature, and we have about 35000 Teams - It takes about 1 hour to search that list, and when I finally get the Team I'm searching for, I can't select it
