  1. Map properties depending on the source content type

    On our scenario, we want to map two properties from the source, not one.
    However, we do not want to merge them into one because it's not the case that two existing properties will map to one property; they will still be a one-to-one mapping.

    We would like to do something like this,

    $propMappings = Set-PropertyMapping -MappingSettings $propMappings -Source "prop1" -Destination "prop3"

    $propMappings = Set-PropertyMapping -MappingSettings $propMappings -Source "prop2" -Destination "prop3"

    However, by doing this ShareGate overwrites the first mapping with the second one.

    The reason for doing this is simple: each content type will only have one of the…

  2. Map/concatenate multiple text properties into a single property

    We would like that, in PowerShell, we could have the ability to map multiple properties to a single property.
    At the moment, it seems that this is possible only with certain types of fields.

    "3) Advanced scenario – Multiple columns to a single column
    Since Sharegate 2.9, any destination column that supports the ‘multi-values’ (Lookup, Choice, People, Managed Metadata) option will allow more than one column to be mapped to it"
    https://sharegate.com/blog/sharepoint-merge-remap-multiple-columns-to-a-single-column

    So if we have a simple scenario such as:
    Property A (text)
    Property B (text)

    We cannot map them to a
    Property C (text)

    this is only allowed…

  3. Provide ability to output errors only

    When using PowerShell to perform a content migration, ShareGate outputs successes, errors, warnings, etc.. Please provide a way to output errors only so we can check for errors > 0, and if true, do something (like use native PowerShell functionality to email the admin, for example). This way, multiple migrations can be run without the need to scan all the results for errors.
