We are planning on doing this in a near future and will keep you updated once we actually start.
Currently Sharegate is unable to migrate any pages from a classic or modern site, to a modern site. This can be a major issue for organizations moving modern sites from a tenant to a new one, or just trying to preserver certain elements from the source
Though we’ve had support for Exchange Public Folders in the past, we decided to remove it and not support it with our tool.
The intricacies of Exchange and especially Public Folders migration can be quite complicated. We did not feel that we were bringing a good experience to our customers.
Though one should never say never, so we’ll keep you posted if there is an update. Thanks for taking the time!
Users might want to move MSG files and data from their Exchange Public Folders to any SharePoint library.

Some users might want to be able to export a list of all the tasks to be able to monitor the activity from Sharegate or understand the kind of data rate they have with something like multiple OneDrive migrations
When exporting a lot of metadata, some users hit the row limit with Excel and get an error. Some would like for Sharegate to be able to work around that and automatically create multiple files.

I’m curious to hear more from you about this one.
-What kind of information would you like to see in such a site map?
-What format you’d like it to be?
-What would you do with it? Who would you show it to?
Thanks for your help!
Add options to interpret the results of the inventory. Hierarchy, charts, visuals, etc.

Whenever connecting to a site from the migration tool, the connection is stored and will appear in the drop down in that panel when you come back. After a while, some users might want to remove some of the connections to keep it clean and more efficiently access sites when doing many migration jobs
When having a read-only lock, users will get denied access an other errors.
If possible, it would be useful if Sharegate could check for a read-only lock on the site collection(s), and throw an appropriate error or warning.
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.
When importing from a FileShare, the "Filter by time range" feature will use the latest date between created and modified values. This can pose a problem since moving a file within a FileShare will update the created, but the modified remains the same. This causes some users to experience unexpected results with the filter and an option to decide to absolutely use last modified would be very useful to avert these problems
During the migration, some users would like more flexibility on managing the content types that gets copied.
It would be great to have an option to exclude or even map content types for full site copy.
For import jobs, since that value exists in a File Share, some users would like to import only more recently used files by using the Last Accessed date for their migration
Add more filtering options in Sharegate to get specific Content Types or custom values to the "Export Selection to Excel" option.

I am glad to say that we are currently exploring the possibility to add an option to automatically make Read-only and/or Delete the source of migration if it goes errorless.
We’ll keep you updated with any news on this.
Some users wish to move files instead of just copying them. So the source would be removed and the file placed in the destination. This would be useful for certain types of archival.
Some users would like to have more flexibility with their content types when doing full site migrations. In a lot of cases, have an option to replace content types at the destination on a site level would be very useful for those using migration as an excuse to clean up their sites
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.
Add size of the files in the migration report so users can have a general idea of the quantity of data they migrated
We understand that the situation is not ideal, but we have no plan on doing this for now.
We might get to this eventually.
Add the possibility to use an excel or CSV list of users, to feed them to the "Specific Users and Groups" Option in the Permissions Matrix Report.
This would become a huge time saver when users need to get permissions and details for a specific set of users.
This helps if you have a lot users
It would be useful for the less PowerShell literate users to have a UI method of completing multiple source FileShare Folders to Multiple OneDrives directly from a UI option/panel.
Basically a UI option to replace this:
Allow users to simply merge the content of multiple libraries into one from the UI

Recently, we launched ShareGate Apricot, a tool that offers to delegate the decision of archiving stale groups to users.
That being said, an office 365 backup feature is not something we are planning to add to ShareGate Desktop. We’ll still keep the suggestion opened to new votes and comments and keep our eyes on it. But for now, it is not part of our priorities.
We’ll update the suggestion if our plans change.
Give Sharegate the capacity to backup Office 365 Libraries with the possibility to roll back a version in case of malware attack
We don’t plan on adding progress indicator as we feel it would only become misleading because estimation are really hard to make due to technical limitations.
Since the diagnostic files can get quite large, and are a set amount of data, a progress bar could be nice for users to know where the upload stands.Victor supported this idea ·
For Migrations in PowerShell, add -vebose like cmdlet to allow users to see the progress of the migration instead of waiting for the migration to finish/script execution to end.
Besides user name, it would be helpful for some users to get User ID, Display name, email, domain, etc. when reporting on users such as adding Owners to a report
Add the users email to the Audit Report results to be able to quickly reach out to them.
This is not currently in our plan to allow our users to compare two environments.
We might do it in the future, possibly starting with permission as it seems like it would be the most useful part on security level.
When using Copy-Site to copy a full site at the destination, Sharegate creates a new site from a default template. An option to remove objects (default content-types and libraries in example), that were removed from the source would be ideal for some users

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.
Add the possibility to get a report on viewing behavior on documents of a library
