  1. Migrate Workflow Definitions

    The SharePoint Migration tool should being over Workflow Definitions from SP2010 and SP2013 workflows. While we understand inflight workflows can not be migrated customer with workflows should see the definitions migrated to SharePoint Online.

  2. SharePoint Migration Tool: Excluding paths

    A useful addition to the SharePoint Migration Tool would be to support the option for excluding paths in a file share to SharePoint migration scenario. It would be very useful to put an exclude symbol "-" in front of a mapping while building the .csv. In this way you are able to migrate the only what you really need. Example: a library with 50 folders and you need 48 of them. In the current version you migratie everything and in a post migration step you need to manually find and delete these 2 folders. Or I need to add 48…

  3. Create new and updated protocol documentation

    Having solid documentation allows for detailed understand and self troubleshooting.

    The protocol documents that were done for SharePoint 2010 should be repeated for SharePoint 2016.

    SharePoint Products and Technologies Protocols - https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj633112.aspx

    SharePoint Back-End Technical Specifications - https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj633109.aspx

  4. Add Yammer to an existing SharePoint Online

    We are using the SharePoint Online created by Teams and all other cool Apps like Planner, Flow and One Note. However, in order to use also Yammer we currently need to create a new Yammer group (that creates a new SharePoint and so on).

    It would be great if from one O365 Group you could manage ALL apps, regardless where this group was created from. This would enable us to manage our SharePoint integration with Yammer seamlessly.

  5. I want the profile picture displayed in SharePoint Online contents to mirror the availability status of the user.

    As is, the profile picture displayed in SharePoint Online contents to mirrors the availability status of the user with a mark, but does not connect with Skype for Business or Exchange Online.
    I would like for you to change this, so that SharePoint Online contents also gets interlinked with the availability status of Skype for Business and / or Exchange Online.

  6. Possibility to successfully add the new Site Page content type to a custom Wiki or Document library and improve functionality.

    I love the layout of the new Site Page content type, with end-user friendly editing options, super easy and intuitive document and video embedding options and easier than ever picture inserting. It is perfect solution for when end-users (even not power users) have to author wiki pages in a SharePoint site. When inserting a picture, you do not need to choose in which library it will be uploaded and you don't have to fill any meta-data. The same with attaching documents. Even more - Office documents get automatically embedded in the page. Now you can have some text and embedded…

  7. Provide Hybrid capabilities for User Profile and MMS

    While Search with hybrid SSA is getting to a prett neat hybrid story, for UPS and MMS there has been (besides maybe the PnP Metadata synch workaround) no attempts to provide a proper hybrid story. Please work on that if you really want to have a well understood and implemented hybrid story as a differentiating factor compared to other providers

  8. Make one eDiscovery center work across O365 and On-Premise

    With the new Hybrid search options it would be nice if we could make one eDiscovery center that will cover both on-prem SharePoint and O365 and be able to do holds.

  9. Please make the output of Start-SPMTMigration an object

    The output of Start-SPMTMigration is in sentence form, and while you can capture it, you still have to parse it, which is exactly what you're NOT supposed to have to do in PowerShell.

    Instead the Output of Start-SPMTMigration should be something like this
    GUID Status Reason
    ----- ------ --------
    c3cc7804-7164-4a2b-8996-7e51f319dea9 Passed
    efd127ce-68f4-4d85-960d-5384ba561bef Failed The Target Site <URL> does not exist

    I mean, you still have to parse the Reason, if you want, but at least you have fewer hoops to jump through just to remove tasks that are destined to fail from your migration.

  10. Support SAML auth on SharePoint 2019 modern OneDrive Sync client

    Our goal is to enable Extranet connectivity for SharePoint 2019 with support for the OneDrive Synchronization client (also known as the Next Generation Synch Client - NGSC).

    During our investigation we found that, while the NGSC worked successfully with NTLM authentication worked, it did not work with SAML claims authentication.

    SharePoint 2019 supports the use of SAML 1.1 but the NGSC does not. The product group is investigating the possibility of adding that feature but currently there is no ETA.
    During our call with MS Support we verified that the NGSC does not even pass cookies;
    However when we are…

  11. SharePoint Migration Tool Migration Support for Lists With Lookup Fields

    Currently, when migrating a list with a lookup field using the SharePoint Migration Tool 2.0, a failure occurs stating that the list with the GUID cannot be found. The dependency lists were migrated successfully, however, when migrating the list with the lookup fields, it is looking for a list with a GUID that doesn't exist. When the dependency lists are migrated over, they get new GUIDs.

    PowerShell support is now available for SharePoint Migration Tool (SPMT). Customers should be able to leverage PowerShell cmdlets to extend migration activities in their own custom migration logic.

    Link to the PowerShell cmdlets @ docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepointmigratio..

  14. 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…

  15. Add the ability to schedule a migration to the SharePoint Migration Tool

    Pretty much as per the title - add the functionality to create a migration job, and have it start at a particular time of day, pause when required, and then continue. The SPMT can use a lot of resource on the device it's installed on, and consumes bandwidth, so have it start after working hours, pause for the next day, and then continue, all automatically, would be very useful.

  17. 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

  18. 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.

    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

  20. 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.
