We are planning on doing this in a near future and will keep you updated once we actually start.
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 evaluating a migration with Run Pre-Check, please include Folder Items as part of the output. My use case is that I after a multi-stage migration (A -> B) (wich is an intial migration, then an incremental), I then run an incremental pre-check in the reverse (B -> A) to produce a list of deleted items, since ShareGate does not handle deleting items.
This is not in our plan as this would be a massive amount of work. We also fear that the results would be supbar compared to an hand-crafted script.
We understand that PowerShell can be intimidating but our documentation is there to help (and so is our incredible support team).
Add the ability to export a configuration for migration from the ShareGate UI out to powershell. It would make the work of automating a mass migration easier if all the actions selected in a migration could be exported to a set of powershell functions that would serve as the starting point of automated migration.

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.
IDs shoudl be preserved as part of migration. There might be custom code solutions expecting certain IDs.
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 running a Copy Site Structure task, please stop trying to migrate the MicroFeed. It is know that it cannot be migrated, so, simply skip it.
