Create Library or Folders Through PowerShell
Ability to create a standard document library or folder through PowerShell
Create the folder structure before the whole migration, Resolve-PNPFolder has limits - 64000 library items, I found the hard way.

i will check if the new version of migration tool offer in the Microsoft 365 portal for free can do it
if it does it, ...
The workaround is to use SharePointPnPPowerShellOnline module using the Resolve-PnPFolder function. Put a try/catch around the ShareGate Copy-Content command and then this will auto create the folder.
Would be really useful, especially since if you were using Copy Content via an Excel Import it would create any folders that are mapped.

1. If PowerShell had a switch\property for "-CreateDestinationFolder" when doing a "Copy-To" migration, to create the destination folder path if it doesn't exist would be fantastic. I find myself having to create the folders manually first then using the PowerShell commands.
2. Alternately, if there was a "Create-Folder" command-let within ShareGate instead of needing to incorporate the SharePoint Online Management Shell that would be good too.

Adding my vote for this, it's crucial for us to have this capability.

We are in the process of migrating from one OneDrive for Business tenant to another. We would like to take the content from site A and copy it to Site B under a new folder in a given users documents folder.
We would like for ShareGate Desktop to create this folder for us as part of the migration

I would like to be able to create folders within Sharegate before starting a migration (right click, create folder) and then, apply permissions on it to match the source material.

During the import, being able to convert folders in lists, attached content type and do all the mappings
