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.
This is not on our roadmap for the time being
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.
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.
Unfortunately, due to re-priorization, we are moving this item back to “thinking about it”. The exposed solution was defined a while ago, but never started. We are currently evaluating if it is the right one. We are going back to the drawing board so we can offer you a better solution.
The ability to group migration tasks together in a plan.

It seems to be more complicated than we thought and had to push this back in our priorities for our roadmap.
We’ll come back to it if this becomes a priority again and if we’re able to determine a solution for it.
I just forwarded your email to a colleague of our support team so they can contact you.

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.
To export tasks, you can select them with the check boxes on the left and then click on "Export Selection"
I hope this helps!

Thanks for sending this in! I just want to make sure I get it right, what you'd like would be to be able to see in which group (SharePoint groups) each user are part of in the audit report?
Can you explain me the full scenario here?
Thank you for your suggestion!
Unfortunately, this is not something we are considering at this time.
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.

Love the idea! Sharegate wants to help you get more out of the tool, beyond migration to help you adopt your new Office 365 platform or next SharePoint.
Usage and Analytics isn’t something easily accessible, otherwise we’d already have built it. However, it’s something definitely high on our radar and currently being researched by one of our Product Owners.
If you have more details to share, please reach out to us we would love to hear more.
run a report to show the numbers of visits, number of unique visitors
We know it’s been two years since the last update to this suggestion, so it feels like we need to update it.
We still would like to do it, but the effort investment is quite large and we feel like it is better put in working toward a tool that is better suited to support the modern workplace than to improve our current reporting tooling which works quite well.
We do keep this initiative close as we still want to do it eventually, not just in a near future.
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.
This is not something that can be done currently through Sharegate. I'll leave it here as a feature request.
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.

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.

Definitely something to look into! Thanks for taking the time to share.
The PMR or “Permissions Matrix Report” is one of our popular reports, it makes sense to want to leverage it for more than just a report.
We’ll be evaluating what the best way to present this information shortly with our teams. As soon as I know more, will keep you posted with an update.
Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback again.
Modify permissions right from the PMR
Be able to change the settings of the inventory (ex: change the unused sites time to x months)
Though we haven’t evaluated it yet, we do have an initiative coming up where we will visit some of our migration related insights.
We’ll make sure to look into this and give you an update.
Would be nice to see the duplicate items in fileshares so we don't migrate them twice
