  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  4. Status page for Sharegate

    There should be like a status page that indicates if there are any current migration issues with Sharegate. For example, Microsoft pushed an update last week and it affected Teams migrations, and I'm just finding out today about it, after running several migrations and spending time investigating, and then opened a support ticket to find out Sharegate is aware of the issue and actively working on it. Might be a good idea to have a status page on your site where admins can go in and check if there are new changes to be aware about.

  5. Ability to access and report on the hidden User Information List.

    There are times a bulk # of users that are not yet orphaned but need to be removed from SharePoint. Maybe have a powershell script available for various activities such as this and ability to export to excel, etc..

  6. Database size reporting

    SPDockit can do health checks such as looking at database sizes, seeing disk allocation, checking the event logs, etc. These are things related to the SharePoint on-premise environment that ShareGate does not have visibility into. I would love to see these features integrated into ShareGate or perhaps it would be another tool altogether.

  7. C# Assembly

    My team and I are all SharePoint developers who tend to write in C#. We're currently working on several large SharePoint Online Migrations. We've scripted a number of steps using the PowerShell libraries Sharegate provides. However, writing complex software in PowerShell is not ideal. All the software we write is for in house use only. Any opportunity to work with Sharegate C# DLL's would be helpful.
