  1. Include timebased information like CreationDate,ModifiedDate and LastAccessedDate in the scan reports

    Include timebased information like CreationDate,ModifiedDate and LastAccessedDate in the scan reports to gain insights on data in fileshares or SharePoint that might require archiving or disposition opposed to migration. By including this in the reports, these can be used for further processing.

  2. Allow migration of Library structure but not take content. Popular request from customers

    Third party tools such as ShareGate and Metalogix allows the customer to migrate libraries with an option (setting) to leave behind the content. This is very common request from our customers needing to cleanup sites/content before migration but allows the migration of site structure. I have been asked if this is possible many time and I can only recomment using a 3rd party tool. This would be a great addition to our migration tool.

  3. Support TargetListRelativePath in SharePoint Migration Tool UI

    It would save us a lot of time and hassle if we could specify the target folder in the UI instead of having to export and edit the JSON file to do it.

  4. 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

  5. SharePoint Migration Tool: Excluding paths

    A useful addition to the SharePoint Migration Tool would be to support the option for excluding paths in a file share to SharePoint migration scenario. It would be very useful to put an exclude symbol "-" in front of a mapping while building the .csv. In this way you are able to migrate the only what you really need. Example: a library with 50 folders and you need 48 of them. In the current version you migratie everything and in a post migration step you need to manually find and delete these 2 folders. Or I need to add 48…

  8. Why is it making an app pool with the installing user? It should be a service account

    Prompt for a user and password of the user who will run the service.

  10. migrate SharePoint 2016 to O365

    We have a few SharePoint 2016 sites that we would like to have migrated to Office365 but I'm not able to find an easy way to do this. I tried to save list as template to get some of the content there but the data didn't import correctly. There needs to be a way to migrate SharePoint 2016 to O365 fully.

    Thank you for providing feedback. We do have in the plans to bring support for SharePoint 2016 as a source in the SharePoint Migration tool. While we can’t commit to a timeline right now we are working on enabling the SharePoint 2010 first then move on to 2016 based on current feedback.

  11. Support in SPMT SP 2019 <=> SPO migrations

    Would be nice to have the ability to move sites and content between SharePoint 2019 and SharePoint online with SPMT tool in both directions

  12. SharePoint Migration tool complete with Errors

    Migrating from SharePoint 2010 appears to work and great progress has been made. However, it would be nice if the tool would complete sites that had errors and just skip and log the portions that were unable to complete. We are noticing the tool can complete individual portions under a site, but if there is a specific error on a site the entire migration fails and halts. Error is usually "ErrorCode: 0x02010002" and does not migrate or continue past that error. If we select the individual portions in the site most all migrate fine. If that is the case it…

  13. Explain about the need to check the box to Migrate a OneNote folder as a file versus a library option

    Please write a post explaining the need to select the option for Migrating a OneNote as one file, versus a document library with many folders.

  14. Support SharePoint Online to SharePoint Online Migrations in the SharePoint Migration Tool

    A very useful addition to the SharePoint Migration Tool from Microsoft would be support for SharePoint Online to SharePoint Online migrations. There are many scenarios where this is commonly needed for some customers who must restructure or realign and be able to migrate from one area of SharePoint Online to another. Just in general as well this would be a handy option to have.

    Could this please be considered as a future improvement to the SharePoint Migration Tool including support with bulk migrations for SharePoint Online as a source. Thanks.

    Thank you for bringing this suggestion to our attention. While the SharePoint migration investments have been focused on helping the on-prem customer transition to OneDrive and SharePoint in Office 365 using the SharePoint migration tool, we acknowledge that there are additional scenarios like the ones explained in this suggestion that are not covered yet. We are currently considering various options to solve those scenarios, but we cannot commit to anything at this point. Please continue bringing great suggestions to our attention like this one.

  15. Support SAML auth on SharePoint 2019 modern OneDrive Sync client

    Our goal is to enable Extranet connectivity for SharePoint 2019 with support for the OneDrive Synchronization client (also known as the Next Generation Synch Client - NGSC).

    During our investigation we found that, while the NGSC worked successfully with NTLM authentication worked, it did not work with SAML claims authentication.

    SharePoint 2019 supports the use of SAML 1.1 but the NGSC does not. The product group is investigating the possibility of adding that feature but currently there is no ETA.
    During our call with MS Support we verified that the NGSC does not even pass cookies;
    However when we are…

  16. Remote Blob Storage in Azure Storage Account (BLOB) storage For SP2016/2019/O365

    Basically create an add-in / configuration element in CA in 2016 / 2019 that enables a Farm Administrator to select a single or multiple Azure Storage Account blobs to operate as Remote Blob Storage, and conversely support this ability in O365. Then for migration you would leverage the migration tool to migrate list data and metadata for documents - but just reference documents in azure storage -- for lots of my customers that would greatly simplify migration - you could create multiple blob storage accounts which could all be loaded independently - or we could figure out a way to…

  17. SharePoint migration tool and Teams

    When migrating from server file shares in to SharePoint Online using the SharePoint migration tool, currently you can only choose the root folder of a document library and not the libraries belonging to ,for example, Teams channels. This means that you have to migrate in the folders and files and then use a separate method (SharePoint move or move in File Explore after a sync) to move these to respective Teams channel libraries.

    Please develop the tool so that you can select Teams channels libraries/document sites as the destination and not just the root library.

    While our integration with Microsoft Teams and Groups in the SharePoint Migration tool is not fully complete. You Should be able to point the tool to Any existing Teams or Group connected team site to migrate content into it. We understand this is not optimal but for the moment you can use the CSV/JSON approach to point it to folder mapping to different teams channels.
    more details at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepointmigration/how-to-format-your-csv-file-for-data-content-migration

  18. Add the ability to schedule a migration to the SharePoint Migration Tool

    Pretty much as per the title - add the functionality to create a migration job, and have it start at a particular time of day, pause when required, and then continue. The SPMT can use a lot of resource on the device it's installed on, and consumes bandwidth, so have it start after working hours, pause for the next day, and then continue, all automatically, would be very useful.

  19. Migrating SharePoint Online sites to Modern SharePoint Site

    There is no direct tool available to migrate the SharePoint online list libraries or customization to Modern sites. Though the scripting is not supported directly in modern sites. Is there any way to provide some suggestive migration tool for the same.
    Thanks

  20. Enabled Document Preview for on-prem files in Modern Search Center

    We set up Hybrid Search (CloudSSA) so that we can point users to our Modern Search Center (sharepoint online) while we run in hybrid for next few years. But document preview does not work for on-prem files. Per Microsoft engineer, this is being worked on.

    Reason : Modern Search uses different preview or microblog service which does not have the ability. Classic search from Enterprise search center has the preview ability
