This would be helpful! When using the copy structure option, Sharegate should be able to change the settings for columns like making them not required and allowing fill in choices, so that options will migrate accurately.
I also agree this improvement would be very helpful. If Sharegate could clear the required flag on columns, do the copy, then restore the flag.
When using the copy content option the workflows on the library are not disabled by Sharegate. This creates an issue if I only want to copy some items over and not the structure of the library/site, but do not want the workflow to run. To handle this I would have to manually disable the workflow. This isn't ideal because then it appears I modified the workflow. Many site owners do not like this. Having the ability to select an option to disable workflows while migrating would be very helpful.
I am aware this happens with copy structure, however I did not learn this did not happen with copy content until I copied several hundred completed requests, only to have an approval workflow kick off on all of them.

Please bring this option back! My list of connections is getting rather long.

Lately we decided to shift most of our energy towards migrating, managing and adopting Office 365. When we create new features, we make sure they also work with SharePoint on-premise (if possible), but we are not planning on developing more options of features specifically for on-premise at the moment.
I’ll keep the suggestion open and our ears are still open to new comments.
The ability to preserve list IDs is an important option. It would be nice it there was an option to do this as needed, since it doesn't always matter. In some cases we have lists that rely on the item ID. Having that change during migration becomes a huge problem. I've seen the workaround, but that only works in limited situations.

The ability to see hidden objects, like lists, custom files, workflows would be very helpful

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!

This is not on the roadmap for the time being
It’s been a while since this suggestion has been updated so I just want to let you know that after re-evaluation, we still not planning on adding such a feature in the near future.
We will continue to read your comments so don’t hesitate to send in more.
Thanks again for sharing your feedback.
As much as we hear your need, this is not currently on our road map. We will revisit it eventually.
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.

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.
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.
