  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    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.

  4. 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,

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. SPMT tool is not retaining folder permission sharepoint online post migration.

    SPMT tool is not retaining folder permission in sharepoint online post migration. A User/users added with FULL permission on local folder when synced to sharepoint online it does not retain the permission. User/Users with Modify permission and R/W permission are getting retained as is in sharepoint online. Please look in to this issue.

  9. Sharepoint Migration Tool Wiki page library

    Allow WIki Page LIbrary to be selected from the list of things to migrate from OnPrem to Online.

    Currently, even though we can successfully migrate WIki Page LIbraries by selecting "Migrate All Lists, LIbraries, Pages and Webparts", it does not allow you to specifically select WIki page libraries from the drop down to migrate just that libraries instead of migrating everything.

  10. Map the default groups in SharePoint

    Map the default groups in SharePoint

    Right now you can map AD users/groups manually through a CSV but it doesn't apply to SharePoint groups.

    The problem comes with default groups when migrating to a site collection already created at the destination. At the end of the migration, 6 default groups are available: the 3 source groups and the 3 destination groups.

    The problem is even greater if we want to keep the permissions since the tool breaks inheritance in all the lists/libraries due to
    The source Visitors group is different from the destination Visitors group
    The source group of Members…

  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.

  12. 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?

  14. 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.

  15. 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?

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. Sharepoint Migration Manager (Preview) - Add option to Schedule a start time

    I know it's in preview, but if you could add the option to Schedule a start time from within Migration Manager like Exchange Migration that would be awesome and help with throttling as we could configure a Out of Hours Start time!

  20. 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.
