  3. Fix Inaccuracies in SummaryReport generated from SPMTMigration Powershell cmdlet

    The SummaryReport CSV generated from a PowerShell SharePoint Migration Tool (SPMT, SPMTMigration), is not showing accurate information for one of the tasks at the end of a multi-task migration run; the task shows that it is still in progress, but the migration finished successfully.

    Checking the task reports in the folder, everything is in order; the migration completed successfully; all files/folders have migrated to SharePoint online, and there are no issues, as well as no FailureReports in any of the report folders.

    For more details, see my post on Q&A here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/172930/inaccuracies-in-summaryreport-generated-from-spmtm.html

    Thanks!

  5. Error 0x01110014 copying list items from SP2013 to SP Online

    I am using SPMT ver 3.4.119.7. I receive the error code above with the message "Scan File Failure:The item's content type was not found in the initial scan" in the Failure summary report. I am copying a list with the single content type "Item". In the past, I have been able to copy items from the list using ShareGate.

  6. SMAT tool SPD reports

    The SMAT tool reports all the SPD 2010 workflows that are added to library via content types. The document content type by default lists 3 workflows and these 3 workflows are reported in spite of not being configured on the library. This adds up to the number of workflows reported and it doesn't give us deep dive information of whether they are enabled on the library. This poses a big challenge in terms of understanding what workflows needs to be really transformed to power automate. Rater, we would like to focus only on those workflows which are in use and…

  9. Filter out files and folders based on their name

    The migration settings of SPMT must have an option to filter out files and folders having specific name or starting with certain string.

    For example -


    1. We want to filter out "$RECYCLE.BIN" folder while migrating home drives to OneDrive for Business.


    2. Sometimes, the Office applications, such as Word, Excel etc, create temporary hidden files which start with the characters "~$", which we want to filter out in the SPMT migration settings.

  10. simultaneous migrations

    Change the amount of simultaneous migrations currently this is set to 5 but it would be nice if we can set this our self. this doesn't have to be an infinite number but for example 1-20 so that if we got fast hardware/bandwidth we can migrate more and for slower older stuff lower it.

  11. Remove access/Run scripts

    Ability to remove access to the old location or run custom scripts after each migration job. We currently have an issue where we migrate a user to OneDrive but the Recent Links still point to the old file path.

    It would be great if we could have something that either blocks access to the user once the migration is done or the ability to run a script so we can automate process after a migration.

  12. For Migration agents, offer opportunity to pool agents logically and select specific pools to control bandwidth usage and data flow.

    SPMT agents, specifically for local fileshare to OneDrive, is limited in that you define X agents, they are selected automatically. Adding a feature to either specify the agent pool to use, or limit it by domain. Use case: Multinational company doing migrations both in EMEA and Americas end up with agents in EMEA migrating AM users, which is essentially two ocean hops for the data.

  13. Sharepoint Migration Tool Wiki page library

    Allow WIki Page LIbrary to be selected from the list of things to migrate from OnPrem to Online.

    Currently, even though we can successfully migrate WIki Page LIbraries by selecting "Migrate All Lists, LIbraries, Pages and Webparts", it does not allow you to specifically select WIki page libraries from the drop down to migrate just that libraries instead of migrating everything.

  17. SPMT - NTFS Owner should map to Sharepoint Owner

    When migrating from file share to Sharepoint with SPMT the "Modified By" and "Created By" fields are always set to "System Account" and the Owner defaults to the Owner of the Site.

    The information of who originally made the file/folder, which is usually the NTFS "Owner", gets lost in transition.

    I propose that the NTFS "Owner" should be mappable to an Azure AD user which populates the "Created By" field, optionally the "Modified By" field, as well as the Sharepoint Owner of the corresponding file/folder.

    Additionally, when viewing a Sharepoint folder in Windows Explorer via. the OneDrive client, "Modified By"…

  18. JSON SourcePath: Syntax (Forward-slash instead of Back-slash)

    When composing a JSON "SourcePath:" entry that targeted a mapped drive, I found that it required a Forward-slash instead of a Back-slash. The instructions show the use of a Back-slash but that failed for me.

    This is an example of what worked...

    "Tasks": [

    {
    
    "SourcePath": "M://BOD",

  19. Increase the file upload limit

    Currently uploading files to onedrive is limited to 15GB.
    With an increasing file size, especially with 4k content, the 15GB limit causes some inconveniences
    Please
    Increase limit of the uploaded file to 50GB or the highest possible level
