  1. Ability to access and report on the hidden User Information List.

    There are times a bulk # of users that are not yet orphaned but need to be removed from SharePoint. Maybe have a powershell script available for various activities such as this and ability to export to excel, etc..

  2. Search in migration source/destination selection screen

    Enter SharePoint URL in GUI instead of having to browse a list and also save credentials.

    Right now it's painful to use the GUI when we want to select/find a SharePoint site to migrate. It would be helpful if we could simply go to the "Copy" page and then simply search or enter the URL of the SharePoint site to select it, rather than have to scroll down a large list when we have thousands of sites to "find" it. You can search in Teams so I'm not sure why you can't search for SharePoint sites...
    This is also made…

  11. Pause feature for migration operations

    Having the option to pause a migration, only to restart it later would be great to control and break down bigger migrations.

  12. 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.

  13. Ability to report on the Last Modified Date (activity) of Teams in the Migration tool

    As there is a limit of 10k Groups for the Management tool, being able to report on Teams in the Migration tool and do a cleanup would allow for reducing the number of Teams below the threshold.
