  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. SharePoint Online service administrators should also be allowed to run the SharePoint Hybrid picker, not just the O365 global admin

    In large IT organizations, especially organizations that already use Office 365 applications, often the O365 global admin is a different team or admin than the SharePoint Online team or admin. The SharePoint Online admin team who would have the SharePoint Online service administrator role, but not necessary the entire O365 tenant global admin role, should be able to run the SharePoint Online Hybrid picker as well as the O365 global admin.

  6. Add Yammer to an existing SharePoint Online

    We are using the SharePoint Online created by Teams and all other cool Apps like Planner, Flow and One Note. However, in order to use also Yammer we currently need to create a new Yammer group (that creates a new SharePoint and so on).

    It would be great if from one O365 Group you could manage ALL apps, regardless where this group was created from. This would enable us to manage our SharePoint integration with Yammer seamlessly.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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..

  16. 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…

  19. copy path

    "Copy path" making it possible to copy the path to a point in the file structure would help the organisation to learn "what to find where" by pointing at exact not-manually-entered locations.

    It would decrease the tendency of the structure to become a "write-only-memory" with increasing size and time.

  20. 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.
