    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback via Sharegate’s Uservoice. Unfortunately, the suggestion provided is not in the current roadmap and has therefore been declined.

    Although the current status of this suggestion is under “declined”, it has not been deleted from our feedback service. Other users will continue to have the chance to vote for this suggestion.

    Microsoft tell us that throttling is over the order 10 times stricter during peak work hours than it is in the 8pm to 8am block, in the time zone of the destination SPO tenant.

    Anecdotally we’ve found this to be very much the case, we rarely see throttling outside of these core hours, but frequently nuke a tenant during the working day, both with Sharegate and with CSOM PowerShell scripts.

    We’ve been trying to take advantage of this by starting our migrations with Sharegate at maximum speed, in Insane Mode, after 8pm on Friday, and then manually switching it down in the GUI before Monday morning, but this isn’t brilliant for long-running migrations. I’m about to start 5x 500GB fileshare migrations, which may take 4-6 weeks apiece, that’s a lot of switching.

    What would be great is a dual-speed facility; low-medium speed during set core hours, and then pedal to the metal in non-throttling hours. This would help get the maximum data out without upsetting the Microsoft speed policing unit too much.

    I’d see this looking something like the mock up below, 2 distinct time and day selectors (weekends are in the low-throttling zone, unclear if bank holidays are, we suspect not) with independent behaviour around performance. I’d also like to see the Insane Mode selector brought back to this screen, and maybe have that aspect controlled by the selector too, though that’s a very much 3rd tier of usefulness.

    This would be advantageous for any on-premises source; file shares or on-prem SharePoint, for small companies in particular, can experience performance degradation with heavy-load migration activities.

    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!

    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

    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.

    be able to mix some data from your source, with some data already at the destination and decide which column from the source and which column from the destination to preserve

    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!

    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.

    Hello,

    This is not something that can be done currently through Sharegate. I'll leave it here as a feature request.

    Cheers,

    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.

    Hello Martjin,

    When copying content though a Powershell script, the time range filter is available by creating a property template. You can find more info on the subject here: https://support.share-gate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000598707-New-Property-Template

    In OneDrives or sites, it would be amazing if we could get granularity at a folder level and not just the 'Documents' library level.
