  2. 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.

  3. Allow move/copy from O365 Group to any O365 Sharepoint Library

    Currently you can create an Office 365 Group for a project and it comes with a "Files" section to share files. Well, the group's project is done and you want to move or copy those files to a more public repository on Office 365 Sharepoint. However, there is no may to multi-select files/folders and move/copy from the Groups to Sharepoint. This is a huge need as it exposes the file to the whole company for discovery whereas Groups are usually a limited audience. If you are a Mac user, you don't have the Windows Explorer option either. This should be…

    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. I would love to understand more what are the specific parts you would like to see in the tool

  5. UX change in Suite Bar for SharePoint 2016

    I noticed that the Suite Bar in Office 365 and in SP2016 doesn't display the user in the top right the same way. SP2016 displays the name where Office 365 shows the picture.
    Would be better to do the same as Office 365 in SP2016 no? Better UX when in Hybrid.

  6. SharePoint Migration Tool: Edit settings in "saved migration sessions"

    After you run a migration and you saved it, you can only run an incremental migration or delete the session. It would be great to edit the migration settings or maybe also add or remove a task from the review migration.

  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. 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.

  9. Block users to work with client application on documents on cloud - i.e. allow only editing in excel online!

    We will be happy to send the following important\urgent feedback to Microsoft:

    It's important to allow users to access documents online only!
    If other users can edit in excel (client application) so we have conflicts and any other error messages will pop-up while someone else is trying to work offline (with client application).

    In other words, block users to work with client application on documents on cloud.

    We cannot leave google cloud services yet!

    Thanks,
    Avichai

  10. better hybrid experiance

    Search integration should be seamless between O365 and local installation. A method for combining navigation would also be a plus. With search integration I'd like to see a better hybrid discovery story similar to what we get with exchange. Even better if I can add a 2016 server and great a hybrid endpoint without uplifting 2010/2013 farms even a bigger plus.

    If carrying out a migration via the SharePoint migration tool, objects and list items are moved more slowly than files.
    Please improve the speed at which objects and list items can be migrated.

  12. 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,

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Add Popularity Trend Reports support for SharePoint Hybrid / SPO

    As described here: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/ronalg/2016/11/21/hybrid-search-and-search-popularity-trend-reports/ Popularity Trend Reports are not available in hybrid scenarios as "the view events are not passed on to the search farm that is in the cloud". Include this functionality or provide an alternative in a future release

  19. Regarding file downloading

    I wish a specific user not to download file. My users recognize that if we set the right only to read file, we are able to download the text file, PDF, and pictures although I find the file not downloadable. Nevertheless, the folder itself can be downloaded even if I have Office files within the folder. That makes my users mistake all the files within the folder for downloadable ones despite the fact that the Office files fail and that we can't view the file. I request that in case I set the right only to read, I am unable…

  20. Provide capability to leverage one content type hub and managed metadata term store in hybrid scenario (or at least sync)

    Being able to source taxonomies from SharePoint online and utilize them in a hybrid SharePoint 2016 on-premises situation would aid in consistency across content types, site columns, search (managed properties), etc.

    If it is impossible to consume a SharePoint Online content type hub on-premises, at least provide the possibility of syncing.
