  1. Migration or upgrade path to 365

    Currently if we want to migrate or upgrade to 365 we have to purchase an additional 3rd party product. It would be very beneficial if we could migrate some of the on-premise list, libraries or even sites without the need to invest additional tools that charge per GB.

    • 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.

      • Having calendar invites to Site Mailbox show up on site calendar

        Sending calendar invite or meeting request from Outlook (exchange) calendar to Site mailbox will not add the event to calendar created in SharePoint online as the SharePoint calendar is not associated with site mailbox in anyway.

        Also exchange calendar cannot be overlayed with SharePoint calendar as this feature is not available in SharePoint Online.

        • Enable support for Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) in SharePoint Online.

          CMIS is an open standard maintained by OASIS. Microsoft was one of the original stakeholders in creating this open standard. Microsoft has implemented CMIS support in all recent server versions of SharePoint. Only SharePoint Online does not yet support CMIS. Having this interface would make migration to SharePoint Online much easier as customers could use a tool like OpenCMIS to easily migrate their content and folder structures from their existing content repositories to SharePoint Online.

          • Automatically Sync All Sites to Desktop

            Right now, the best way to sync SharePoint sites with desktop computers with Office 365 ProPlus 2016 is to visit the site in a browser, navigate to the Document Library, and click the "Sync" button. This needs to be done manually for each site that the user wants to sync.

            Is there a way to automate this now, or a plan on the SharePoint/OneDrive for Business roadmap?

            The desired functionality is that on first launch, OneDrive for Business prompts for the user's login credentials (it would be nice if this was pre-populated for domain joined and/or Azure AD logins as…

            • 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…

                • 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.

                        For the most part the migration tool is good and easy to use, however, if possible it would be great to have the estimated time remaining displayed on the app just to give an idea of how long it will take

                          Latest version of Migration Tool lost the completed migration job so I am unable to perform an incremental upload. Had fully uploaded the data successfully and selected to save the job for future incremental uploads as per documentation online, however, when launching the tool it has updated and has lost my migration job so I can do an incremental upload!!! Spoke with Microsoft support and they are aware of this issue but was advised to provide feedback here, it would be great if this latest release of the app can bring back my migration job as I cannot afford to…

                          • 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.

                              There should be a way to utilize newest and best features provided by new version of SharePoint without going through the current painful and costlier approach of migration for clients. There have been Times when clients wanted to utilize new features but they were afraid of upgrading.

                                    • Update SPO Cmdlets to support new file size and path limits

                                      Hello, attempting to use the SPO cmdlets to perform migrations of data to SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business, but the cmdlets do not support the new file size limits and path limits. We are getting errors when we try to migrate files larger than 2Gb. or when paths have more than 260 characters. We would like to see the cmdlets updated to support the new limits.

                                        • Please stop changing the Design Methodology with every major SharePoint Upgrade

                                          Please stop changing the Design Methodology with every major Upgrade. Every major upgrade forces the developer/designer to learn a new way to redesign a custom look and feel. This makes upgrades painful and dreaded. Please allow for backwards compatibility for prior design work.
