  2. Find and replace values in bulk edit and content migration

    It would be nice to have a "Find and replace" behavior in the custom template of content migration and bulk edit. Right we can use the mapped values, use a custom values, prompt values, create a default one or ignore the property. Would be nice if Sharegate could find specific values and replace it

    LP Lavoie responded

    We understand this need, but seeing as it is fairly trivial to do in SharePoint Management Shell, for the time being we’re concentrating our efforts on more complex scenarios that have no easy alternative.

  6. AD groups (security groups) reporting

    -Be able to know what permissions the users from a specific AD group have access to.

  8. Copy permission scopes from one object to another

    The idea would be to be able to copy the permissions as they are, from one object to another. Currently, this can only be done in a granular fashion with Quick Actions.

  9. Web Part Report

    It would be very useful to undergo a report for Webparts within a site collection.

    Checking which webparts are open and in use within a site collection if important for migrating accross platforms. This type of report would be VERY useful for SharePoint teams as it would highlight sites which need attention from the developers (if a webpart is custom for example) to ensure they dont break.

    Please can this be added?

  15. Report on ''Link''

    I am hoping that a report could be made to search thru all list library items that have a content Type of “Link” (or Document Library with a content type of “Link to document”) and then be able to do a “contains” or “ends with” option so we can target a selected Link or page

  18. Bulk edit metadata without affecting version number

    We would like to bulk update the metadata of a library. However, we would like to keep the current version number of the documents, so it cannot be increased when we use ShareGate to bulk update the metadata.
