Being able to rename folders across multiple sites or OneDrives based on a search report results.
We feel like our migration experience is quite good right now and we don’t plan on doing custom rules and filters for now.
Some of those can already be done using PowerShell, SharePoint views and other means.
We will eventually reevaluate this once we advance further in our roadmap.
Add the time range and extension filter to structure migrations as well (only available for content migrations for now)

View site collections from teams app in management tool
Be able to import to several locations using only one Excel metadata sheet
We have started working on being able to automatically export to a SharePoint Library once an operation is done. We feel that this will allow you to, in conjunction with Workflows or MS Flows, to automate a lot of work.
We’ll keep you updated when this is released.
The idea would be to send the results of reports via e-mail to specific users and also schedule that export.
- Generate reports and emailing them to recipients
- Automate recipient (i.e: Site Owners)
- Export reports to a location somewhere or even email to a default email address as an exported attachment

Since the default is now disabled. It should prevent most situation some of you are describing.
We still feel like the Auto-Assign as site collection administrator is a useful option in certain case.
If you encounter an issue you can always refer to this documentation to fix it. https://support-desktop.sharegate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000647528-Can-I-remove-myself-as-an-administrator-after-I-have-auto-assigned-myself-as-one-
One Drive is perceived to be completely private and can cause question when someone is assigned as admin.

This was not an easy decisions, but we had had to make the difficult choice. There are less and less SharePoint 2007 versions out there and the “plumbing” for that platform is immensely different from SharePoint 2010+ versions.
This meant we would have to re-write almost everything for SharePoint 2007 and decided to bring more reports and management features for the latest platforms instead.
Thanks for taking the time and sharing your feedback.
Having access to Inventory feature for a SP 2007 source to plan a migration

We know this suggestion has been here for a while now. To be honest, this has never been a priority but today I am a bit curious on learning more about the ultimate need behind this idea.
Would the ability to report on metadata help you prepare for migrations? Or is it connected to content management?
What are your thoughts on this?
Being able to choose columns to display based on the environment, not just the pre-set columns
We have no plan of improving the Source Analysis (previously known as the Inventory) for now.
We might eventually come back to it (or the pre-check) and will let your know if we do.
- Site owners
- Number of items
- Last modified date
Merged for different tickets:
- Site owner
- File count
- File size
- Creation date
- Last modified user
In Inventory, when you see an error or warning about a List Template or Site Template that caused the migration to fail, how to identify what the offending template is?
As much as we hear your need, this is not currently on our road map. We will revisit it eventually.
Move documents if they are moved by users on the source site to another Document Library / Site since the last incremental update has run
Incremental copy of terms based on a timestamp
Adding a third property to determine if an item should be replaced in a incremental copy to avoid duplicates if more than one item have the same title.
During a incremental migration, it would be great if files, users, views, alerts that were deleted at the source since the first migration would be deleted at the destination too.
Being able to copy site collections in an empty environment with a powershell script (right now we can only merge with existing site collections)

Adding property like ID or Item URL on Permissions Matrix Report.
Set Site Collection as read only or NOACCESS
Handle the settings in the Explorer
We understand that the situation is not ideal, but we have no plan on doing this for now.
We might get to this eventually.
- Perform a bulk check on a group of users' permissions.
- use an excel or CSV list of users, to feed them to the "Specific Users and Groups" Option in the Permissions Matrix Report.

We have no plan of supporting the recycle bin in ShareGate Desktop.
Can the reports include the recycle bin please?

see an option to manage the number of Version. Would like to delete old versions based on number or perhaps date.

I was going through the comments in this thread and clearly understood your desire of visibility over user alerts (who created them, type of alerts, etc.) but I am curious to hear how the info would be used, how you would consume the info and most importantly, do you also feel the need to take any kind of actions over the alerts?
I hope I’ll hear from you soon!
