  2. Copy team members from one Team to another.

    It would be useful to be able to copy just the members from one Team to another, existing Team.
    For the moment, users have to be added one by one in Explorer.

    This could save a lot of manual work.

  3. Excel report export, format as table.

    I am exporting a report on site collection size, I would like to know if there is a way to format the report as a table, so that I can import into PowerBI?, currently I have to open each report and format as table, so I can then import into PowerBI

  4. 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"…

  5. 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

  6. Remove Read-only lock

    I manually must unlock site collections on SharePoint server before I can touch the site in ShareGate.

    [Could] ShareGate have a PowerShell cmdlet or functionality to lock or unlock site collection?

  14. Search in migration source/destination selection screen

    Enter SharePoint URL in GUI instead of having to browse a list and also save credentials.

    Right now it's painful to use the GUI when we want to select/find a SharePoint site to migrate. It would be helpful if we could simply go to the "Copy" page and then simply search or enter the URL of the SharePoint site to select it, rather than have to scroll down a large list when we have thousands of sites to "find" it. You can search in Teams so I'm not sure why you can't search for SharePoint sites...
    This is also made…

  15. Map properties depending on the source content type

    On our scenario, we want to map two properties from the source, not one.
    However, we do not want to merge them into one because it's not the case that two existing properties will map to one property; they will still be a one-to-one mapping.

    We would like to do something like this,

    $propMappings = Set-PropertyMapping -MappingSettings $propMappings -Source "prop1" -Destination "prop3"

    $propMappings = Set-PropertyMapping -MappingSettings $propMappings -Source "prop2" -Destination "prop3"

    However, by doing this ShareGate overwrites the first mapping with the second one.

    The reason for doing this is simple: each content type will only have one of the…

  16. Map/concatenate multiple text properties into a single property

    We would like that, in PowerShell, we could have the ability to map multiple properties to a single property.
    At the moment, it seems that this is possible only with certain types of fields.

    "3) Advanced scenario – Multiple columns to a single column
    Since Sharegate 2.9, any destination column that supports the ‘multi-values’ (Lookup, Choice, People, Managed Metadata) option will allow more than one column to be mapped to it"
    https://sharegate.com/blog/sharepoint-merge-remap-multiple-columns-to-a-single-column

    So if we have a simple scenario such as:
    Property A (text)
    Property B (text)

    We cannot map them to a
    Property C (text)

    this is only allowed…

  17. Searching on "Copy Structure and Content" form

    As of now, ShareGate does not offer the option to search through the Copy Content and Structure user interface. If you have a hundreds of sites you are not able to search here. It would be a great help for the migrator operators to add a search box to this form.

  18. Ability to temporarily take over landing page to communicate to users about upcoming migration or changes

    It is difficult to get business owners of sites to communicate with their user base. They have mixed success in getting the message about site changes in front of their users. The ability to create a temporary page to communicate changes would be useful in addressing this. As admin we are asked by site owners how they can let every site user about the changes and in the event of a large multi-site migration this is too much of an overhead to try and retrieve lists of email addresses for SP2010 and SPO using PowerShell.

    A traffic light system might…

  20. Permission matrix report - import list of users from CSV

    We need to find all items that 150 users have Owner or full control access to in our environment for a security and compliance initiative. To run a report like this you have to manually add one at a time each user, it will probably take me 2 hours to add each user 1 by 1 in the people picker for the report. We need to have an option to import a list of users from CSV. Please see image for better description of what we are asking.
