    • 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…

      • Whole site hierarchy migration with no throttling

        Right now, throttling when using 3rd party migration tools to bring whole hierarchies from on-premise farms causes simple operations to take literally 60X longer than the same operation from on-prem to on-prem. The SPMT doesn't do subsites in the hierarchy. We need an admin switch to either turn of throttling for specific IPs or a way to at least inform O365 Operations that a migration or long running operation with many thousands of requests will be happening. I have 750GB of team sites to migrate and the math with throttling doesn't look good.

          • 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.

            • Incremental Migrations

              This is more a request for comment as I am wondering if a content DB is restored from Prod to Test, then a full migration is performed and that job is saved. And if the content DB is subsequently copied from Prod to Test again, and that saved migration job is used, will the SPMT perform an incremental migration or not?

              • Support destination Document Sets with the SharePoint online migation tool

                When using the existing SharePoint Migration tool, if you have a folder in the source and a Document Set with the same name in the destination, it seems to corrupt the Destination Document Set.
                Would it please be possible to migrate files from a source Folder to a destination Document Set with the same name.

                • SharePoint Migration Tool Picture Library support

                  Adding support for Picture Libraries would be allow users to migrate photos from local or network storage to SharePoint Online directly. Currently you can only select Document Libraries which means a two step process is needed to upload photos in bulk to SharePoint Online using the SPMT.

                  • 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.

                      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.

                            • 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.

                                    Hi,

                                    We are migrating content from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint Online.

                                    We have two document libraries in team site with 33436 and 33416 documents in team site libraries.

                                    We have one document library with 27010 documents in Document Centre site.

                                    We are using following power shell command to migrate data: This command does not migrate all documents, it just copy some data into SharePoint Online. Please let me know what are the other ways to achieve this?

                                    Run on SharePoint 2010 PowerShell
                                    $SourUrl = "Site URL"

                                      • Allow the ability to rename , or add multiple domains in the naming of sharepoint sites.

                                        I would love the ability to change the name of the default sharepoint site, or allow the ability to create new ones using a newly added domain.

                                        In my case, we changed the name of the company, and don't want to have the old name as part of the sharepoint site anymore.

                                        • 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.

                                          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…
