ShareGate’s insane mode for faster migration to Office 365

default post thumbnails

Wow, there are no words to describe how proud I am of the Sharegate team.

In just a few months, we have worked closely with Microsoft on supporting their new insanely fast Migration API to Office 365, and we also partnered up with Nintex as their only Recommended Migration Tool. It was a lot of work for the entire team, but the results are astonishing.

Welcome to Sharegate 5.4 🙂

New Office 365 Migration API

Sharegate is now faster than ever.

As you already know, things are moving real fast here in Montreal, but things will get even faster with the new Migration API just released by Microsoft. This new API is the fastest way to bring huge volumes of data to Office 365 and only requires an Azure Storage Account to get you started. We worked very hard with the Microsoft team to make it happen and hope you’ll enjoy it! 🙂

To use it, Sharegate introduced the Insane Mode that can be enabled if you’re running a migration to Office 365. It’s that simple.

BONUS: This new API preserves the List Item IDs. This will make a lot of people smile!

We also built great reporting around it so you know what’s going on while Office 365 is importing your data from Azure.

Nintex Workflows & Forms Migration


Nintex and Sharegate just announced a partnership to move customers to Office 365. It means that from now on, Sharegate will include a migration path for Nintex Workflows & Forms between SharePoint versions, and from On-Premises to Office 365. It also means that Sharegate is now the only Recommended Nintex Migration Partner.

Migration Report Revamped

In order to support the new Migration API, we had to change the migration report, so while we were at it we decided to improve a few things.

If you’re migrating a lot of things, the migration report will now be much faster to visualize. We did some black magic behind the scene to fix it.

Filters removed
We realized that many filters were just useless and were slowing the migration report drastically. We got rid of them for a simpler & faster report.

Multiple selections for status
You can now select multiple status at the same time. This way, you can now visualize the errors and warnings at the same time!

The migration report is now split in sessions. You need to select a session in order to visualize the details of what happened.

New filter: Show Office 365 imports only
This filter allows you to visualize only the Office 365 imports related to the new Migration API.

So, we hope you’ll enjoy this release as much as we are proud of it. Make sure you update your version or download a new trial here.
