  1. 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.

  2. Report content for which a specified user/group has no access

    I wanted to run a ShareGate report to find site/library locations in SharePoint Online that our CEO does not have access to, so I can quickly locate them and grant the CEO access. However ShareGate does not support this reporting requirement. I think it's important for SharePoint admins to be given the option to see all permissions in a report, including locations that specified users/groups are restricted from accessing. This would also enable us to show various management via the report that specific users/groups have been successfully excluded from their restricted content.

  3. Groups listing of explicit permissions for whole Permission Matrix Report

    In the Permissions Matrix report, when all expanded to show group members, it would be much better to have a separate section of the report that only shows the various groups' members once, rather than repeating them on everything. Ideally the report would then just list the group names once, and then explicit permissions listed individually. Does that make sense?

    Same with the Excel export. Possibly export the report with 2 tabs, one is the matrix the other is the list of members of all groups.

  4. Use of graph Api (app registration) for access on Spo and MS Teams

    Use of graph Api (app registration) for access on Spo and MS Teams
    Giving admin roles for migration is not appropriate however granting access via graph Api is possible, when will sharegate starts working such requirements.

  5. Migrate permissions from one group to another

    We need the ability to migrate current permissions from one permission group into a new permission group. We are currently moving our collab sites to SPO. New permission groups are created with the site and we want to move the members of the groups in collab into the new group created in SPO. As it stands today, we need to retype the users in or move an old permission group into SPO.

  7. During "Copy User Permission" on subsite, just add user to SP Group with access to subsite

    When using "Copy User Permission" with the "Copy Group membership" on a subsite, the tool will add the target user to all SP Groups in the site collection, not just those that the target subsite has access to. This can lead to a user having access on sites not scoped for the "Copy User Permissions" operation

  8. Convert SP group members into M365 group members

    Not sure if this is possible, but make it easy to convert who is in a SharePoint Group and add them to a team membership group.

  9. Be able to expand by levels in the PMR

    Right now you can only expand all groups or manually select them, it would be nice to be able to expand all the first level permissions and so on

  11. Permissions Matrix Needs to Include Group Membership

    The permissions matrix report needs to be include who is in each SharePoint group. Or that could be a separate report for group membership.

  12. Make an option to auto-expand the groups in PMR an option, not the default behavior.

    You might still need to consider to offer as a choice for users to choose to expand or not the groups in the PMR when auto-exporting it in a library, as I got an issue opening the report with groups expanded when the report is huge (complex site collection with too many unique permissions)

  13. Hub Site Reporting

    It be really great to run reports such as Permissions and everything else against a Hubsite and all associated sites. There are many groups people create that I don't care to know permissions for but I need to do reports for anything associated with our hubsite.

  14. Copy user permissions in Bulk

    Our company is doing Active Directory migrations now. All the users will get new accounts. This is for thousands of employees. Currently we are using ShareGate to copy user permissions one by one.

    Is there a way we could do it in bulk? We have the lists in Excel.

  15. Quick Select multiple users for PMR

    You can select specific users to run the PMR on, but you have to search each user one by one. If you want to scope down the PMR to a specific department of 40 users, you have to manually add those users by hand and it takes a long time.

  16. Add option to run multiple reports with a CSV file

    Add an option to run multiple reports based on parameter like URL, with a CSV file. Users would like the ability to report (Permissions Matrix Report in example) on multiple sites or drives, but it can be difficult to specify which ones and some users might want to feed a CSV file with URLs to do so

  17. Display users under their SharePoint Groups

    When running a permissions matrx and expanding the SharePoing Groups can you make the users in that group appear under it so it keeps the users in that group together instead of lumped to getter because it doesn't make any since when looking at the exported report when I just have a list of users.

  18. Customized the Permission Matrix Report

    What to acheive:
    For the business users, we want to hide some columns and have some filtering (e.g. "Permission Levels" is not "Contribute").

    Business Case:
    We need to run this report quarterly for the business users. And to them, a lot of the fields don’t make any sense and can cause confusion. Therefore, we are hoping if there is an option to set the filters/hide columns.

    Can we do this through the Sharegate Shell?

  19. See users who have permission through a sharing link

    A user has access to a specific library folder that was granted by a Sharing link which requires they be internal users. SharePoint interface then shows me the associated users and with manage links hyperlink to administer. However these users do not show up in the Matrix report. My expectation would be to see the user in the matrix report since they appear in SharePoint.
