  1. Display which template has been chosen on the "Import from file share" screen

    Please add an options summary for which Template has been selected, on the migration "Import from file share" pre-migration page.

    This will allow a quick way to see which template has been selected on the "Import from file share" page, without having to open the "Options" screen.

  4. manage bulk metadata

    As a digital workplace manager I need to be able to migrate 200,000 files (300gb) of data from a file share to multiple different team sharepoint sites. To do this I first need to export the metadata for that file share as a master list of content that needs moving. I then need to match that to the business rules I've agreed with the content owners e.g. files with last accessed dates older than 2 years will be archived. I then need to use the mapping file the content owners have given me to build an EXCEL formula that indicates…

  5. Reporting separated from migration

    We have a group of people who handle permissions and would benefit from using this feature in ShareGate. However, we don't want someone accidentally migrating or moving sites. It would be great if we could separate the permission section out or authorize a user ID to only that area.

  6. Report on Managed accounts

    HI, could you include in the Security Report an option to report on Managed Accounts? We are being asked to provide audit reports of password change schedules and changes.

  9. Destination library data scanning improvement

    When migrating into a library with millions of documents, sometimes the scanning process mid migration seems to take a lot of time. If we could avoid having to scan the destination at all, that would be great

  11. Navigation Merging

    Currently, regardless of the settings in Sharegate, when you copy navigation from one site to another, it overwrites the navigation on the destination site. My use case is I am the SP admin for 6 divisions of a larger corporation. I am trying to set a similar look and feel to all the sites. I would like to have a base template navigation that I can copy and paste to sites and have some of the division sites have personalized navigation. If I ever have to update some of the navigation, it would be great to update the template then…

  12. when copying sites, libraries and lists dont add the default documentor item content type

    we use custom content types across the board and don't leave the default document and Item content types in libraries and lists. If we use ShareGate to copy a site, library or list it add the default content type which we then have to go through and remove.

  13. Expandable columns

    Sercurity Targets, search results for the Object column, there is not a column to slide to allow me to see the name of our subsite. I see the https://domain.sharepoint.com/sites/sitecollection/subsite/sub.... it is cut off and i cna't expand the column to verify that it's the one I want. The title is different than the site name.
    Feedback sent from the Targets view.

  16. Add ability to update 'Search and Offline Availability' at site level in ShareGate Explorer view

    It would be great to have the ability to remove a site from SharePoint search. The SPWeb boolean property is NoCrawl.

    Making this available in Explorer will take several steps off of our plate when we deactivate old / unused sites in preparation for site removal.

  20. Disconnect from specific sites within the farm/tenant

    It would be useful to be able to disconnect from one site collection specifically instead of having to disconnect the whole environment.
