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).

When I am running a migration using the Sharegate Migration tool, it would be great if I could receive notifications via e-mail that a migration has completed so that I don't have to continually keep checking up on it. That e-mail would ideally list the source and destination locations (paths) in case I have multiple running at the same time - this would allow me to quickly identify which one has completed. A summary in the e-mail would be nice too (# of files successful, warnings, errors, etc.).

It would be helpful if I could queue up migrations to run after a previous migration has completed. For example, we may have higher priority folders to migrate from a file share, so I want those to run first. But once they're done, I'd like a second migration to start which moves the remaining lower-priority folders from the file share. This would save me from having to log in on a weekend to check on the status of a migration and then start the second part. Ideally we could chain multiple of these together (for example, if there were a third set of folders that I want to migrate once the second set is done). For performance reasons, I don't necessarily want 3 separate migrations running at the same time though.
As much as we hear your need, this is not currently on our road map. We will revisit it eventually.
I would love to be able to receive e-mail notifications from Sharegate when my migrations finish. Often there are additional steps that I need to take once a migration finishes. Right now, I have to continually open up Sharegate to see what the status is. This includes weekend migrations. It would be ideal if I could just monitor my e-mail via my smart phone to know when a migration is complete, rather than having to continually interrupt my weekend to get my laptop out, connect to VPN, log on to our system, and check the status, only to find out that it's not yet complete.
