  1. rename cloud copy job

    In Cloud Copy, after the job has run, there is no way to rename the job that ran. So, when migrating many teams from one tenant to another, it is difficult to figure out which Incremental job to run without keeping a log based on run date/time.

    This option is available in the desktop migration tool would love to see this in Cloud Copy

  2. Convert Classic Blogs/List to Modern Pages

    As many people have legacy blogs or lists that should now be converted to Modern pages, it would be helpful if the tool could help with that. Microsoft has some documentation around it but it would be a great addition to the migration piece as I deal with many clients that have this need.

  3. History tab only option in copy options

    For team objects its possible to copy messages. Recent messages will be copied to the Posts tab, while older messges will be in the history tab.

    It would be helpful if all messages are copied only to the history tab and you can start over with posts in the copied channel. Perhaps as an additional option.

    Maybe this could also allow to copy posts from an existing channel as "history tab" into another channel with the same name. Especially when you want to merge channels

  4. Migration of in-form "Conditionnal formula" in libraries

    In modern libraries forms, there is an option to create a "Conditionnal formula" for individual columns.

    Currently, these are not migrated when copying a library's structure.

  5. Fix TEAMS migrations to set correct rights and permission levels to Teams SharePoint document library

    Fix TEAMS migrations to set correct rights and permission levels to Teams SharePoint document library. There is currently an issue to Copy-Teams. It´s not setting permission levels correctly #453327 ticket.

    It´s doing it right when you do SPO "Copy Content&Structure" migration top of already migrated SPO site after Teams migration.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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

  12. Ability to remap changed list lookups

    We have transitioned from an onpremise Sharepoint to SP Online, this type of task is very necessary in many migration instances not just our own. Copy and rename, using a formula, that is all I need. I can tailor a script but lookups do not work properly unless done in a very specific order. Try doing that will 200 sites and several thousand lists. I cannot stress the level of necessity it is to dynamically remap changed list lookups. PLEASE ADD THIS TO THE NEXT VERSION OF SHAREGATE. But my biggest issue is that the support we get now is…

  13. Add ability to migrate Nintex on-prem workflows to Nintex Workflow Cloud

    Nintex has informed me that they no longer recommend migrating Nintex on-prem workflows to SharePoint online workflows as the workflow engine is being deprecated by Microsoft. They only recommend migrating directly to Nintex Workflow Cloud so it would be very helpful is ShareGate supported this.

  14. Have the possibility to create projects in SG

    Since we have multiple migrations in parallel, it would be great to have the chance to create projects in SG. This will avoid to have several session IDs mixed from different migrations all together. Once one project finishes, we can easy export all reports and delete the project and easy clean-up the temporary files on C:. Also, have the chance to recover or restore an old project in case we want to do a delta (copy_teams) or revocer some info/data from that project.
    In this way we could have one sub-folder per project undermeath cache and applogs, scheduling folders.

  15. Teams and Planner migration - list of elements from each environment

    In the GUI, add the option to show or not the list of Teams and Planners, or to avoid to do the fetch when you connect. This is to avoid waiting for so long when you connect against a very large environment. Since normally a Teams or Planner will be copied as a new, it is in vane to do the fetch in destination.

  17. When an error or prompt pops up like "time to re-authenticate" no one ever sees it. Have a way to notify the admin team of the error

    We run our migration servers with minimal supervision. When an error or prompt pops up like "time to re-authenticate" no one ever sees it until users complain their data is not being migrated (we are moving data from file servers daily). If these prompts could trigger an email or some other alert to a designated group, we could deal with the issue right away.

  19. Add Microsoft Power Automate actions for Sharegate Migration

    I need Power Automate actions to better support many Sharegate migration activities while those migrations are running on a VM. PLEASE CONSIDER THIS FEATURE REQUEST!!!

    Some examples of important actions i would like to configure in Microsoft Power Automate would be:
    1. Notifications for when a migration starts and ends

    1. Start a report (standard or custom reports) from Power Automate. This is especially helpful if I have a saved custom report with the automatic export configured already.

    2. Get a list of all tasks (and their current status) within a certain time frame (example - get all tasks and their respective…
