    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,

    The blog post only works for reports.
    I'd like to be notified when a task completes or have the option to turn on an email notification when a scheduled task starts and completes instead of babysitting the interface.
    Sometimes we have jobs that we have to start after a previous job completes so it'd be good to not have to check every so often to see if the job finishes so we can start the next one.

    1. If PowerShell had a switch\property for "-CreateDestinationFolder" when doing a "Copy-To" migration, to create the destination folder path if it doesn't exist would be fantastic. I find myself having to create the folders manually first then using the PowerShell commands.
    2. Alternately, if there was a "Create-Folder" command-let within ShareGate instead of needing to incorporate the SharePoint Online Management Shell that would be good too.

    Clients always want to archive old content. As part of those migrations, they want to "...migrate all content (sites, lists, libraries, etc. in their current form), older than 1/1/XXXX to a separate archive site collection.

    Then migrate current content (1/1/XXXX) and newer to their active collection(s). With large migrations, this is a horribly tedious effort to use PowerShell to do List\Library level migrations.

    It would be great if we could use the "Copy Structure" and use a date filter that would use a "Copy Content Newer Than" and "Copy Content Older Than" filter. It would then only migrate all list items, libraries, etc. that meet this criteria

    For me personally, security would be the least helpful. I'd be more interested in comparing content. Then it would be good to run an incremental on those results because you already know what the differences are.

    I personally think comparing content would be the most useful. Then being able to run a delta migration job against the result since you already have the differences.

    The ability to do a delta migration is a must have for our clients 90% of the time. We've had to overlook ShareGate on a few occasions and go with another product because of this. Our clients want us to migrate everything first, they want to review it and test it out, then just prior to their go-live date, they want a delta migration.

    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.

    I'd also like to add further filtering options. I have a requirement now to not upload any file > 1 GB.
