    Sorry for the misunderstanding. We'll make sure to pass this to the product and dev team.

    It would be useful to be able to export the permissions matrix report as a PDF file, as well as a spreadsheet.

    The hierarchical view on the screen is useful to some to wrap their brains around the permissions.

    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!

    Hello everyone,

    After a review of our roadmap, this suggestion is not a high priority at the moment.

    With all the improvements that were done to the SharePoint PnP Modernization framework (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/transform/modernize-userinterface-site-pages) over the last year, we feel like this is a solid alternative right now to convert classic pages to modern ones so we decided to put our efforts in adding more migration capabilities (Teams migration coming soon) to our tool instead.

    We’ll keep the suggestion open and will monitor the comments and feedback and will review it in the future.

    Thank you,

    Please building upon the ConvertTo-PnPClientSide page framework so that we can more easily migrate publishing, wiki and web part pages

    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!

    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.

    Hello everyone,

    A workaround for this at the moment is to turn off the versioning and the content approval on the list or the library you need to update, then use the Bulk Edit Metadata to modify the data you need to modify. One done, simply turn back on the versioning and content approval.

    That should do it.

    Please give me the possibility to set site collection / site / library / list to "read only" from the console. So I can put read only before or after the migration is completed. (Before to be sure nothing changes after it's been migrated). Maybe also add this as an option to a migration job. So it automatically put's the source on read-only after the job finishes

    Hi everyone,

    Since ShareGate Desktop now allow us to automatically export migration reports (and other reports) when a task is done to a SharePoint library, you may easily setup a Microsoft Flow or workflow to notify you when a task is over. If you need some inspiration, I wrote a blog post on how users can leverage Microsoft Flow to share reports by email: https://sharegate.com/blog/use-microsoft-flow-automatically-send-sharegate-desktop-reports

    It’s not a native way to get notified, but a nice workaround you could use until we add official email notifications (if we do at some point).

    Cheers,

    Ability to have favorite migration settings that would always apply to the user:
    - Check / Uncheck options (preserve permissions, include list content, custom permissions, workflows, etc.)
    - Options for Copy as Subsite or Merge
    - Incremental ...
    - Etc.

    Let's say I need to run the same migration, it'd be nice if we could save the settings we are using (include list content, custom permissions, workflows, etc.)
