  1. Copy a Library doesn't have option "Replace All"

    When you copy a library from one site to another, you don't have an option to "Replace All".

    This negates the ability to run incremental changes from one site to another.

    I have 2 sites, "site A" is for upload and "site B" site is the live/pilot site. This approach is so I can re-arrange the content from an on-site fileshare to Office 365.

    I am aware that if I conduct a move instead of a copy the "Replace All" option is available. This isn't useful though, because moving the files means that any on-site changes would require a full…

  2. Migration Manager fails to upload a fileshare folder, only contents of the folder

    Migration Manager should operate the same as SPMT.

    If you use SPMT to upload a fileshare (eg \server\shares\administration) to a "library A", the result will be a folder called administration in the library.

    If you use exactly the same definition in Migration Manager only the contents of administration will be migrated, not the folder itself.

    This shortcoming, makes it very difficult to re-arrange the generally archaic fileshare structure into a more intuitive structure in SharePoint.

    Microsoft answer is "well use SPMT". This is not a suitable answer because Migration Manager provides a more central view of your migration project, and…

  4. Allow sorting of saved migrations

    Saved migration sessions appear to be displayed in a random order, not by name or by date.

    Some control of how they are sorted and some searching would be useful

  5. Include the application version number in the user interface.

    The only place I have found the SPMT version number is in Add/Remove Programs. It would be useful to have this appear on one of the migration screens, possibly with a link to the release notes

  12. Grant migration account permissions to destination site, then remove after data transfer

    When using the SPMT, specifically to migrate personal site data, it would be nice if the SPMT had an option to set the permissions on each destination OneDrive site collection, allowing the data to transfer, then remove the account after the migration completes.

  16. Allow Folders to Libraries Migration

    Often you are trying to replicate the fileshare structure on the SharePoint site which means multiple folders migrating to multiple libraries. It is tedious to go and add 'Source' for each folder. It would be easier to provide a grid view side by side (common in FTP file transfer tool) where you can map folder to document libraries to migrate the data. I did a migration for 25 folders from fileshare and I had 25 different libraries and it was unnecessarily tedious. I know I can create a csv/json for this type of migration but it would be easier to…

  17. Improve responsiveness of file share to sharepoint migration

    I have been migrating a few 10's of Gbytes from on-premise file shares to cloud and find that the migration is so efficient, it saturates my network connection, causing problems for my users.

    When I paused the task after 60 minutes to allow users to do their work, although the file system scanner paused, the package upload didn't, so the tool continued saturating my bandwidth for an additional 75 minutes.

    It would be helpful if the migration tool had some throttling settings to avoid this situation, and if the pause could also affect the package uploader.
