  1. Include file size in export metadata for file shares

    We are looking to import large amounts of data from file shares to SharePoint.
    Before we start this data migration, we need to know the sizes of the files.
    I have done a trial run and used the 'Export Metadata' button to export the file share meta to a spread sheet. That is fine, but the data does not include the file size of the files stored on the file share. Can file size be included in the data provided by the 'Export Metadata' feature?

  3. 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

  5. Export licenses activations

    Since the license activation page was revamped and moved to Sharegate.com we are unable to export the data to spreadsheet, nor copy the data from the page into Excel in a workable format - the pasting goes across multiple lines and runs the data together without spaces in between, rendering the data useless without manually going in to fix it.

    Please either add an export to spreadsheet option, or fix it so we can copy from the page and paste into excel formatted correctly across multiple columns:

    Activated by

    Email

    Activation name
    Activation date

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. Ability to export report results on error or cancelling

    It would be nice to be able to export results for reports that crash before completion or need to be cancelled. For example, if the report is extremely long running and you want to cancel it, all results retrieved up to that point of cancelling are lost. The results are there on the screen, prior to cancelling, but there is no way to export them. After cancelling, no partial results are available.

  9. Check File size in a incremental sync

    We had some errors in a few migrations and the files were created but with 0 kb file size. ShareGate only checks the modified data and not the file size. Because of that there is no possibility to fix this errors with incremental sync.

    Please include a file size check into the incremental sync to resolve issues.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Cover vanity URL (Custom URL)

    Since there are more than 100 companies around the world that use vanity/custom URL, it would be nine that ShareGate can cover it.

  14. 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.

  15. Permission Matrix Configuration Improvement

    I would like to be able to configure a matrix report to run on certain sites only. For example those with names beginning "Bob-* " where the matrix reports on all sites are ...sites/bob-* (* being wild card) . This would cover the creation of new sites that use the prefix, and reduce the size of a tenant level matrix for all sites,, which is a long report.

  18. Language preference

    Hello,
    I am a new ShareGate user. While using the tool last few days, I noticed that it does not allow the language to be changed. We have a tenant in another country and we use English language. Because the tenant is in another country, some of the default folders, lists or libraries that are created show up as a different language. I had to check in the individual folder/list/library property to see which folder I want to use as my source or destination before action for the migration.

    There should be a possibility to allow the language to be…

  19. Release powershell process after job is submitted

    I think there should be an option to just submit the job to the ShareGate client (like you do in the GUI), and then release the PowerShell process for other work.

    The ShareGate client would then scan and upload to storage blob and show reports etc how thing goes. This would also allow us to close the PowerShell window after submitting the job. As now, if it’s closed, the job is cancelled, and you need to restart it.

  20. 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…
