  6. Search Option in the Copy UI

    -With a lot of sites in my tenant it would be really helpfull, that when I’m in the select source/destination was able to search for a site.

    -Would be nice if you could find something in either the 'from' or 'to' display box by searching or even a search string (N25*) or something similar.

  7. Add a ''Move'' and Delete Option

    Having to remember to keep the selection, verify the copy & then delete stuff when you're moving thousands of files around is really hard & painful when you make a mistake. It would be great if you guys had a move option that took care of all of that

    Hi everyone.

    I am glad to say that we are currently exploring the possibility to add an option to automatically make Read-only and/or Delete the source of migration if it goes errorless.

    We’ll keep you updated with any news on this.

    Cheers,

    J-P

  10. Forgetting and/or Not Remembering Site (credentials) options in Sharegate Explorer

    When connecting to a site in the Migration tool, you have options to not remember the site, and you can forget sites that are already remembered.

    It would be mandatory to not preserve that information in the Sharegate Explorer as well for some users. It seems to go against policy to do so.

  17. Add/Remove/Copy user permissions with PowerShell

    Add powershell cmdlets to add/remove/copy user permissions.

    This could be useful, for example, for a user that needs to replace thousands of users due to an AD domain change, it would be useful to be able to use a CSV for all the users

    I would like to have the anonymous links of documents and files being shared. Right now, I don't know to which address the documents are being shared. I don't want to disable the sharing as some of them are required.

  19. Who shared with External users - Report

    Hi all,
    When I first trialed this solution I got great value from a report that detailed what sharepoint artifact was shared with an external user and who shared it.
    I can't seem to find that report now, can one of you help me locate or recreated it?

    regards,
    Jay
