  1. SPMT tool is not retaining folder permission sharepoint online post migration.

    SPMT tool is not retaining folder permission in sharepoint online post migration. A User/users added with FULL permission on local folder when synced to sharepoint online it does not retain the permission. User/Users with Modify permission and R/W permission are getting retained as is in sharepoint online. Please look in to this issue.

  2. Map the default groups in SharePoint

    Map the default groups in SharePoint

    Right now you can map AD users/groups manually through a CSV but it doesn't apply to SharePoint groups.

    The problem comes with default groups when migrating to a site collection already created at the destination. At the end of the migration, 6 default groups are available: the 3 source groups and the 3 destination groups.

    The problem is even greater if we want to keep the permissions since the tool breaks inheritance in all the lists/libraries due to
    The source Visitors group is different from the destination Visitors group
    The source group of Members…

  3. Sharepoint Migration Manager (Preview) - Add option to Schedule a start time

    I know it's in preview, but if you could add the option to Schedule a start time from within Migration Manager like Exchange Migration that would be awesome and help with throttling as we could configure a Out of Hours Start time!

  4. Allow a user using the SPMT tool to select what site template to use when creating a new site.

    Currently when SPMT creates a new site it only does a Modern site no groups. It would be beneficial to have the tool give an option of what site you would like to create. Example sometimes I might want a communication site. In order to do this today I have to first create the site in SPO then use the SPMT tool to set that as my destination. It might be good to have a few choices to pick from or let the user build a site template mapping file.

  5. Remote Blob Storage in Azure Storage Account (BLOB) storage For SP2016/2019/O365

    Basically create an add-in / configuration element in CA in 2016 / 2019 that enables a Farm Administrator to select a single or multiple Azure Storage Account blobs to operate as Remote Blob Storage, and conversely support this ability in O365. Then for migration you would leverage the migration tool to migrate list data and metadata for documents - but just reference documents in azure storage -- for lots of my customers that would greatly simplify migration - you could create multiple blob storage accounts which could all be loaded independently - or we could figure out a way to…

  6. Don't immediately begin migration of files upon resuming a scan only session

    Don't immediately begin migration of files upon resuming a scan only session. I had a scan only session running for 175 shares that crashed the SPMT. Upon restarting and resuming the migration, the tool began actually migrating the files when I only wanted to scan them.

  7. permission

    SharePoint Migration tool does not migration Full permission from File share to "Full Control" permission level in SharePoint Online. The mapping of Full permission to contribute is not a correct scenario because it does not provide Share folder permissions. This is a serious flaw. We hope there is a workaround or fix very soon.

  10. SPS2013: Sites link in top Nav

    Hybrid scenario with My Sites in the cloud.
    Waffle menu on Prem has the "Sites" link that points to https://<Tenant>.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/MySite.aspx?MySiteRedirect=AllSites&Source=SP

    This link is the same as the "OneDrive" link
    https://<Tenant>.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/MySite.aspx?MySiteRedirect=AllDocuments&Source=SP

    Suggested change:

    Have https://<Tenant>.sharepoint.com/layouts/15/MySite.aspx?MySiteRedirect=AllSites&Source=SP redirect to /layouts/15/sharepoint.aspx instead of the OneDrive.

  12. Created By Column on the Site Contents page

    The new Contents tab on the new Site Contents page has a Modified column, but not a Modified By column. It would be great to be able to see who has last modified the contents.

  13. It would be wonderful if we could edit a security group at the document level to remove a user from access to that single document.

    I haven't found a way to remove a user from a security group at the document level without removing them from the group all together. We should be able to remove a user from a security group at the lowest level.

  14. when creating a new file in office 365, offer the option to save to sharepoint

    If i select the 9 dots in the top left corner, i can create a brand new Word document or Excel workbook, etc. But when i choose save as, my only option is my OneDrive. Why cant i save this directly to my SharePoint system, i am already logged in and it would be really useful if i could save to SharePoint rather than what i currently have to do which is save to OneDrive, download it locally then upload it to SharePoint.

  15. A text with some line breaks of document sets is displayed as single line at welcome page

    Even if user type texts with some line break into "Multiple lines of text" column in the document set,
    the text is displayed as one line without line break at welcome page
    Our customer would like us to change the design so that line break info is kept even in welcome page.

  18. SharePoint on-prem & Office365 Branding

    I guess it's curial, that SharePoint 2016 and Office 365 has the same branding possibilities, that the look and feel for end-user could be aligned in a Hybrid scenario right out-of-the-box. Currently, there are different banding possibilities on both platforms and therefore it's hard to get a unified design, without using customizations.

  19. Microsoft Flow - Permission/Administration of this feature

    Microsoft Flow is a new and interesting idea to easily integrate various, High Level process across multiple platforms. However, as an administrator, I feel there are HUGE concerns with allowing anyone with credentials into my environment to be able to create a Flow and have it post to a Facebook, Twitter, etc. bypassing any company's policy/procedure for posting company information into a public/community forum. Just on this reason alone, Microsoft Flow can be a dangerous tool, especially when people are just "testing it out". I feel there should be some form of administration allowed by SharePoint Online Admins to allow…

  20. Allow Content Organizer to put docs into Document Sets

    Currently Content Organizer directs docs into "folders" only. It doesn't recognize Document Sets as target destination. Since we are encouraged not to use folders, it seems a bit odd that Content Organizer doesn't work with Document Sets. Please make Doc Sets available in folders' place.
    And even better would be that the Content Organizer work with any URL within the site, regardless it be a folder, doc set, page or anything. Let it simply move docs into whatever URL is given in the rule setting!

    Thanks!
