    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..

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  6. Regarding file downloading

    I wish a specific user not to download file. My users recognize that if we set the right only to read file, we are able to download the text file, PDF, and pictures although I find the file not downloadable. Nevertheless, the folder itself can be downloaded even if I have Office files within the folder. That makes my users mistake all the files within the folder for downloadable ones despite the fact that the Office files fail and that we can't view the file. I request that in case I set the right only to read, I am unable…

  7. Provide capability to leverage one content type hub and managed metadata term store in hybrid scenario (or at least sync)

    Being able to source taxonomies from SharePoint online and utilize them in a hybrid SharePoint 2016 on-premises situation would aid in consistency across content types, site columns, search (managed properties), etc.

    If it is impossible to consume a SharePoint Online content type hub on-premises, at least provide the possibility of syncing.

  8. Allow move/copy from O365 Group to any O365 Sharepoint Library

    Currently you can create an Office 365 Group for a project and it comes with a "Files" section to share files. Well, the group's project is done and you want to move or copy those files to a more public repository on Office 365 Sharepoint. However, there is no may to multi-select files/folders and move/copy from the Groups to Sharepoint. This is a huge need as it exposes the file to the whole company for discovery whereas Groups are usually a limited audience. If you are a Mac user, you don't have the Windows Explorer option either. This should be…

  9. Reduce the number (hundreds) of times that a login and password need to be entered

    Why do I spend more time entering my email address and password than accessing the many different files and actually doing some work!

  10. Sync SP Shared calendar with ms365 / OWA

    Our law enforcement agency consists of over 1400 users. Probably 90% of those users use OWA .. no licenses for the client. We also have many units that use SP and have a shared calendar on the SP site. Supervisors would like to be able to see this shared calendar in OWA. At this time the calendar can only be shared in the outlook client.

  11. SharePoint migration tool and Teams

    When migrating from server file shares in to SharePoint Online using the SharePoint migration tool, currently you can only choose the root folder of a document library and not the libraries belonging to ,for example, Teams channels. This means that you have to migrate in the folders and files and then use a separate method (SharePoint move or move in File Explore after a sync) to move these to respective Teams channel libraries.

    Please develop the tool so that you can select Teams channels libraries/document sites as the destination and not just the root library.

    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. We understand this is not optimal but for the moment you can use the CSV/JSON approach to point it to folder mapping to different teams channels.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. It would be wonderful if we could edit a security group at the document level to remove a user from access to that single document.

    I haven't found a way to remove a user from a security group at the document level without removing them from the group all together. We should be able to remove a user from a security group at the lowest level.

  17. when creating a new file in office 365, offer the option to save to sharepoint

    If i select the 9 dots in the top left corner, i can create a brand new Word document or Excel workbook, etc. But when i choose save as, my only option is my OneDrive. Why cant i save this directly to my SharePoint system, i am already logged in and it would be really useful if i could save to SharePoint rather than what i currently have to do which is save to OneDrive, download it locally then upload it to SharePoint.

  19. SharePoint list linked with Access Displays #Error

    Calculated fields in SharePoint lists generate an #Error as result when linked to an Microsoft Access database (2010, 2013, 2016 and 365 versions).
    Please fix this.

  20. SharePoint on-prem & Office365 Branding

    I guess it's curial, that SharePoint 2016 and Office 365 has the same branding possibilities, that the look and feel for end-user could be aligned in a Hybrid scenario right out-of-the-box. Currently, there are different banding possibilities on both platforms and therefore it's hard to get a unified design, without using customizations.
