  1. 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.

  2. When doing an Incremental Migration do not overwrite list/library settings

    I noticed that when doing an incremental migration with the SPMT tool that the tool will bring over the setting from the source and overwrite the Destination. Example after migration I enable versioning in SPO but versioning if off in SP2013. When I do a incremental migration versioning will be disabled on the SPO library. It might be useful for people to pick if they want to migrate all setting or leave the destination setting like versioning.

  3. Please make the output of Start-SPMTMigration an object

    The output of Start-SPMTMigration is in sentence form, and while you can capture it, you still have to parse it, which is exactly what you're NOT supposed to have to do in PowerShell.

    Instead the Output of Start-SPMTMigration should be something like this
    GUID Status Reason


    c3cc7804-7164-4a2b-8996-7e51f319dea9 Passed
    efd127ce-68f4-4d85-960d-5384ba561bef Failed The Target Site <URL> does not exist

    I mean, you still have to parse the Reason, if you want, but at least you have fewer hoops to jump through just to remove tasks that are destined to fail from your migration.

  4. Increase Migration Manager File Size limit

    The file size limit in Migration Manager seems to be 15GB, which we have confirmed through our testing and also consulting with Microsoft support. Please increase this limit from 15GB to the file size limit for SharePoint/OneDrive.

  5. Limit scope of what the tool does when only migrating lists

    Currently the SPMT tool does a lot more than it should when migrating only lists or libraries. For example - it changes the site title, activates features (web & site scoped) that are completely unrelated to list data that's being migrated.

    It's rather frustrating when having spent considerable time setting up a site where features need to be deactivated and other settings reverted. The incremental process does the same too. The tool also resets and removes views, as well as surprisingly deletion of indexes that were put in place to assist with filtering in views.

    Thanks,

  6. File with empty date created metadata not migrating to SharePoint Online

    While migrating from file share to SPO using SPMT, if any file "Date Created" metadata is empty, migration tools throwing error "Scan File Failure:The item created time or modified time is not supported".

    I would suggest in this scenario, if "Date Created" is empty it should replace with "Data Modified" metadata and vice versa after migration time.

  8. 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.

  9. Deleting the files from sharepoint site during incremental migration

    We are migrating the files form local machine to sharepoint site using sharepoint migration tool and running the incremental migrations after completing the migration. Now we want our local machine and sharepoint site are in sync and if i delete/move file on my local machine same should be reflected in sharepoint site after running the incremental migration. Currently its not possible. is there anyway to fix it?

  12. SharePoint Migration Tool should support migrating to O365 Team Sites

    Currently it gives an "Access denied" error, but it doesn't really make any sense why O365 Team Sites would not be supported as a destination. There are many scenarios where this is commonly needed for some customers who have Sharepoint sites setup as O365 Team Sites and not as an SPO Site Collection. Just in general as well this would be a handy option to have.

    Please consider this as a future improvement to the SPMT. Thanks

  13. SPMT should have a silent, scriptable installation process

    The SharePoint Migration Tool should have a well documented, silent and scriptable installation process. The GUI portions of this product have interest to me, and yet, I'm stuck with 3 or four clicks to get it installed just so I can automate data migrations.

    Maybe a Nuget Package? Chocolatey?

  15. SPMT Tool allows any user to create sites

    We have recently found that any user can create a new SharePoint site collection using the SPMT tool. It doesn't seem to reference any of our tenant settings. We have a strict governance process and have disabled self-service site creation so that only the SP Admin role can create sites, however the SPMT does not respect any of these tenant level settings. I have logged a ticket with support but they are saying this is expected behaviour. So we would like to see SPMT require SP Admin role permissions to create a new site.

  16. Migration Manager - Move data vs Copy data

    Please add a setting to remove the source data after it successfully copies to the destination - effectively a "move" operation instead of a "copy" operation.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
