  1. 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

  2. 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…

  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. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Share Point (2019) On-Premise & Share Point Office 365 - Synchronization

    Being able to host an on-premise Share Point Server (2019), that synchronizes real time bidirectionally with Office 365 Share Point. (To Improve Performance / Business continuity)

    Also, it would need to have the options of cloning the sites and other pages from Share Point Office 365 to the on-premise Share Point Server (2019). With offering as much full functionality as possible.

  8. 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?

  9. SharePoint Migration Tool Migration Support for Lists With Lookup Fields

    Currently, when migrating a list with a lookup field using the SharePoint Migration Tool 2.0, a failure occurs stating that the list with the GUID cannot be found. The dependency lists were migrated successfully, however, when migrating the list with the lookup fields, it is looking for a list with a GUID that doesn't exist. When the dependency lists are migrated over, they get new GUIDs.

  10. 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…

  11. Allow a user using the SPMT tool to select what site template to use when creating a new site.

    Currently when SPMT creates a new site it only does a Modern site no groups. It would be beneficial to have the tool give an option of what site you would like to create. Example sometimes I might want a communication site. In order to do this today I have to first create the site in SPO then use the SPMT tool to set that as my destination. It might be good to have a few choices to pick from or let the user build a site template mapping file.

  13. Automatic renaming of illegal files and folders in SPMT

    Many of the 3rd party tools offer features to automatically replace illegal characters in file names and/or remapping illegal folder names such as 'Forms' at the root level for OD4B. It would be nice if SPMT also had such features.

  14. Convert folders to metadata of file while migrating to SharePoint

    Provide the ability to analyse folders and sub folders around files and give the feature to convert that information to file metadata before completing the migration. Ultimately removing folders from showing in the SharePoint Library.

  15. Support including Chrome Type in web parts migration in pages.

    Migrated Web parts from SP13 to SPOnline don't include the chrome type attribute as it is and set to "Default".
    So, if I have a web part that its Chrome type is set to "None", it's set online as "Default" instead.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
