  1. Assign metadata to files added to document library using MS migration tool

    The current migration tool works well in transferring metadata already attached to the files (date/time, last user, etc.). There is currently no way to assign metadata required in the destination library to the files during migration, and the migration tool also ignores any default metadata assigned to the destination library (those values added automatically when files are added). You have to either update the values manually or use another tool like PowerShell.

    • SPS2013: Sites link in top Nav

      Hybrid scenario with My Sites in the cloud.
      Waffle menu on Prem has the "Sites" link that points to https://<Tenant>.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/MySite.aspx?MySiteRedirect=AllSites&Source=SP

      This link is the same as the "OneDrive" link
      https://<Tenant>.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/MySite.aspx?MySiteRedirect=AllDocuments&Source=SP

      Suggested change:

      Have https://<Tenant>.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/MySite.aspx?MySiteRedirect=AllSites&Source=SP redirect to /_layouts/15/sharepoint.aspx instead of the OneDrive.

      • Add estimated time remaining to Migration Tool

        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 my migration job

          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.

              • Allow Sharepoint to Open HTML pages in Browser

                Our team has been using Sharepoint for years. Recently, we decided to move to 365 Platform as it has better user interface:

                Having said that we were disappointed to see that Sharepoint 365 does not show html pages, instead it opens up the html in a text editor.

                And if we wish to share the link as a read only, then the link will download a html file (on each time when the link is clicked). Really annoying !!!

                • 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.

                  • Allow admins to see all hybrid search properties

                    Currently, custom properties from an on-prem farm, like site columns in a site, are only visible to the search service account in O365. Global admins, SharePoint admins, cannot see these properties and cannot access them until they are added to managed properties.

                      • More insight into hybrid search configuration

                        Monitoring and troubleshooting hybrid search is difficult and near impossible. Can we get more visibility into the hybrid connection and try to answer some of these questions?
                        1) How many items are in my O365 index, internal vs external? Did you know there's a 1M items from an external search limit per 1TB of SPO storage? Am I close? How much do I have now?
                        2) Why aren't my items showing up in the cloud search? Is this farm connected? When was the last successful push? What else might I need to know to fix this?
                        3) Can I remove…

                                  Can we please get support for on-prem content enrichment as part of the Cloud Hybrid Search service?
                                  Otherwise we're stuck with Federated search, which is far from optimal in terms of user experience.

                                    In SharePoint online it would be very helpful to have also the possibility to create managed paths like /projects or /departments.

                                    • Enable Host Named Site Collections in O365 SharePoint online

                                      In SharePoint online it would be very helpful to also have host named site collections. We use this to logicall sign and separate our URL's like for departments or business units.
                                      E.g. https://it.mycompany.sharepoint.com and https://hr.mycompany.sharepoint.com

                                      • 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

                                        • Export Tasks from Sharepoint list to Outlook Tasks

                                          I have a few task lists in Sharepoint Online and I need to use the "Connect with Outlook" feature so that the tasks are synchronized with Outlook Tasks. When Office 2016 installed on your PC works correctly, this problem occurs when working with Office 365 in the cloud.
