  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  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.

  7. SPMT

    Any recommendation from Microsoft in terms of the port needs to be open for SPMT in the VM where the too being installed. This is to access/brows our on-premise application from SPMT tool, any specific firewall rule needs to be incorporated.

  8. It would be nice if I could upload files in a folder that was shared with me by other person, since I have write permission in that folder.

    Once I have write permission in a some else folder, I think SPMT could permit do migrate files to it.

  9. Column mapping

    Ability to create custom column mapping. For example, if I've already created the structure of list in destination, I'd like to map source columns to destination with the ability to change data type.
    Main problem encountered - migration of external data. It's not supported at all. SPMT creates columns that are used for external data in source, but it doesn't migrate the content, doesn't make them usable. So instead, custom column mapping could fix this issue - if SPMT doesn't overwrite my custom columns.

  10. 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",

    Published instructions:

    I'm migrating 2010 on-premises content to SharePoint online version. A document library with having 'Report' content type, is not in the list of source content when migrating. Please add that content type in there.

  13. Update list item instead of create new one

    e.g. I have 1000 items in my list migrated in my first batch. Somehow I deleted my first batch and created a second batch to migrate all content from SP On-Prem to SP Online, library items will be updated but list items will be duplicated so that I have 2000 items within my list instead of 1000.

  14. CSV Subfolder mapping

    When migrating from a FileShare to Teams (General/Subfolder) using the CSV method, I have not found a way to map the subfolders below General. Could you please post a link to the syntax if it exists or add the functionality?

  15. SharePoint Migration Tool issues error for destination labelled as error for source

    Have the SharePoint Migration Tool label its errors correctly. Currently an error in spelling of the Destination results in an error that states that the source folder is not accessible

  16. Sharepoint Migration Manager (Preview) - Add email Notification on Status/Completion/etc

    I know it's in preview, but again similar to Exchange Migrations, could you add email notification when registering a task so we could get email notification, when completed, progress, etc without then needing to sign back in to check.
