  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. reduce/control SharePoint Migration Tool memory and disk index usage to under 2GB

    The current 2.1 release of the SharePoint Migration Tool balloons to occupy a huge amount of memory and disk space when scanning millions of files. I find this unnecessary for a program that is essentially creating a catalog of files.

    After scanning 15 million files, memory usage is at 12 GB and the list.dat file is 45 GB.

    PowerShell support is now available for SharePoint Migration Tool (SPMT). Customers should be able to leverage PowerShell cmdlets to extend migration activities in their own custom migration logic.

    Link to the PowerShell cmdlets @ docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepointmigratio..

  6. SharePoint Migration Batches just like Exchange Migration Batches

    Exchange Online provides an Online interface, in the Exchange Admin Center, to run, manage and track mailbox migrations. In it you define endpoints and upload (CSV) migration batches. The status of these batches, which run unattended, is then viewable from the Exchange Admin Center no matter from where you are. This is vastly superior to the way the SharePoint Migration Tool currently works, as installed on a desktop client.

    With regards to defining a SharePoint Migration endpoint on-premises, from the SharePoint Admin Center, please consider the Azure AD Application Proxy scenario, where you can download a black-box installer which you…

  8. Local Storage Path

    One of the base requirements for the migration tool is 150G of available space or an SSD. Many of the organizations we support have relatively small C drives though plenty of storage on other attached storage. The migration tool seems to error out if the C drive has < 150G of available space. Please allow the admin performing the migration to specify where the migration tool can obtain it required space.

  10. Edit/View MS Project (.MPP) files from Office 365 SharePoint Online

    After Migration we are unable to open MS Project files (.MPP) from Office 365 Sharepoint online. Please fix this. There are some suggestions online on how to fix it but best would be if this was native within SharePoint Online

  11. Assign metadata to files added to document library using MS migration tool

    The current migration tool works well in transferring metadata already attached to the files (date/time, last user, etc.). There is currently no way to assign metadata required in the destination library to the files during migration, and the migration tool also ignores any default metadata assigned to the destination library (those values added automatically when files are added). You have to either update the values manually or use another tool like PowerShell.

  12. Add estimated time remaining to Migration Tool

    For the most part the migration tool is good and easy to use, however, if possible it would be great to have the estimated time remaining displayed on the app just to give an idea of how long it will take

  13. Offline Mode for SharePoint Migration Tool

    Offline Mode for SharePoint Migration Tool - The SharePoint Migration Tool requires the end user to enter in credentials to an O365 instance. In my scenario, we are currently blocked from accessing login gateways related to O365, but are currently working towards migrating to O365 as a solution. It would be nice to get the insights that the SharePoint Migration Tool provides in its reports without a set of O365 credentials. I.E. if credentials to O365 are not provided, place the Migration Tool into a REPORT ONLY state.

  16. Dedicated Azure Storage ID should be part of each tenant. Not a free ID that is shared.

    Dedicated Azure Storage ID should be part of each tenant. Not a free ID that is shared. We never know how long a large blob storage migration is going to take.

  19. SharePoint Migration Tool Reports

    From what I see the SharePoint Migration Tool doesn't allow to do a report on existing sources before migrating. The relevant reports should be placed on all support data sources including file share and SharePoint 2013.

    What we important for the report to return:


    • List of files and folders and all related permissions

    • Total volume of information and if possible volume of information per folder/file

    • Existence of duplicate files (nice to have)

    • etc

    This would be identical to what other solutions already do (Sharegate, Quest, etc)

    Thanks
