    Hello rjohnson,

    Sadly no. Currently, migrations cannot be scheduled in order to start when the previous one is completed.

    We're trying to migrate a lot of sites in a short period of time, so it's important to reduce time wasted between migrations. When scheduling multiple migrations, there's no way to know how long each one will take to complete so you have to completely guess when to start each migration. If you schedule them to start too soon, you'll have multiple migrations running at once (increasing the chances of getting throttled). Schedule them too late and you've wasted a lot of time. It would be super helpful to have an option to automatically start the next scheduled migration immediately when each one finishes. It would also be good if it could prevent a migration from starting while another one is running. Thank you!

    We’re currently working on a solution within ShareGate Apricot which will help find groups that are orphaned (without owners) and help you find a suitable new owner for it. (or you can also decide to archive it directly)

    Hi Rachel, I'm JP form ShareGate Desktop's team. I just saw your comment and after a quick search, it seems like at some point we merged 2 suggestions together, one to Report on empty O365 groups and one to Report on empty/unused SharePoint groups (yours). Clearly, those are 2 different things and the suggestions shouldn't have been merge. I'll unmerge the suggestions right away and also discuss your idea to be able to report on empty SP groups with my team. I'll keep you updated with any changes related to this. Don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or comments. Regards,

    Would be great if you can define default value / transformation when copying an item to a list containing column that's lookup, mandatory but empty

    I really think it would be a win-win to add an option/switch to this page that asks if we want to expand the groups or not, instead of waiting for the next page. It doesn’t make sense to me that you’d run a report and then ask a follow-up question on how to display it.

    It’s an extra step that could so easily be captured on the previous screen. The reason it really matters to me is I have some site collections that are so huge/complex that the permissions report takes hours and then to expand the report takes another hour. If you could choose the expand option in the initial report parameters screen it would really save a lot of hassle.

    Hello Sergio,

    Since we are currently focusing our efforts on the adoption and reorganization of Office 365, unfortunately, this is still not on the roadmap.

    That said, I'm no expert of Documentum, but as far as I know, it is part of OpenText so I assume the workaround, for now, would be the export the files to a file share and then use ShareGate Desktop's "Import from File Share" feature to import it to SharePoint.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Regards,

    As one of the earlier users of ShareGate, I agree that the product has certainly matured; and in my opinion, a market leader.

    In all of my content migrations, I've always faced one issue that none of the tools seem to address... content removal.

    Most migration projects are multi-phased... a trial to see "how bad will it be", some remediation, then the final migration.
    During this migration cycle, content is being added and removed from the source site.
    All of the migration tools can handle content addition, but not the content removal.

    I think a process to "syncronize" the content would be of value.

    This would require a different approach, driven by both the source and destination site:
    - run though the destination site looking back to the source site
    --- if found in the destination and not in the source, remove the content in the destination site
    --- if the content in the destination is older than the content in the source, refresh the destination site
    - run through the source site looking for new content which does not exist in the destination.
    --- if found in the source, copy the content over to the destination site

    Same logic should apply to groups and users.

    The problem we run into is a migration project which could last months...

    We remediate workflows, pages, and master pages to get the new site working properly.
    During this time period source content is added, changed and removed.
    We don't want to blow away the new destination sites, as we will lose our remediation work.
    Manually identifying destination content which should be removed is time consuming and prone to errors.

    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.

    We know this is a pain, but we are currently blocked by issues in available APIs. Once these issues are available, we will integrate this into the application.

    ETAs from Microsoft are that this should be fixed by the end of the year.

    We’ll keep you updated.

    Hello,

    I just forwarded your email to a colleague of our support team so they can contact you.

    Hi Heather,

    Just like you mentioned and saw in a different thread, exporting the task history can't be done at the moment. Can give me more info about the reason behind such a need? Do you need this be stored or backed up somewhere? Etc.

    Thanks

    J-P

    Hello Heather,

    To export tasks, you can select them with the check boxes on the left and then click on "Export Selection"

    I hope this helps!

    Thank you for your suggestion!
    Unfortunately, this is not something we are considering at this time.

    Hello David,

    This request isn't related to migration reports.

    The request goes like this: Let's say you run a report, ex: checked-out files report. Then you select a few files in the report and check them in. If you go back to the original report using All tasks, it will not say that you checked some of those files. You would have to take a look at the next task (the transformation) in the All tasks screen. The user request was to be able to track these changes directly from the original report.

    As for you request, a place to see "source, destination, which migration type, task name, and which options are checked", all this can be seen on the first line of a migration report.

    With the different options already offered by Microsoft (Popularity and Usage reporting, Site health, etc.), we are wondering if the need of usage reporting in ShareGate is still relevant?

    -Are there any scenarios where the options offered by Microsoft don’t help?
    -How would the info gathered through this type of reporting would help?

    Let us know how you think this would help so we can build the solution to fit your needs.

    run a report to show the numbers of visits, number of unique visitors

    Our stance still stand on this feature and we still wish to provide it to you guys eventually.

    At this point this is more a question of priority and once we feel like our features to move to the cloud and other environnements are on point, we will get to this.

    Hello Christian,

    There is already a possibility to search for documents using a specific type of extension with Sharegate. Simply create a new report with the Object type "Documents" then use the "File extension" filter.

    But from what I can see, your scenario would need a "OR" logic (ex: docx or pdf or xls). Therefore I will merge your suggestion with the appropriate one.
