Another exciting release for ShareGate Desktop today, and one that I’m especially happy to share.

Our previous update was a big one—it brought you scheduling, support for SharePoint 2019 and the modern experience, and faster Office 365 migration speeds—and we’re following up with yet another round of major improvements to the tool.

In ShareGate Desktop 10.0, you’ll find a brand-new section dedicated to planning your migration projects. We also revisited some of the tool’s reporting features to better help you find what you need.

New and improved in ShareGate Desktop version 10

ShareGate Desktop’s navigation menu is now organized by category. We think this will help you get to where you need to be faster, as well as guide you through your migration projects more intuitively. Sometimes, a small change in how we navigate can make a world of difference.

Plan your migration and reduce errors

ShareGate Desktop’s new Plan section was built to guide you through the planning stages of your project, whether you’re moving to a new version of SharePoint or reorganizing your existing environment. We believe that being proactive in identifying and fixing potential issues will help you get the job done faster and with less of an impact on your business operations.

The feature previously known as Inventory was renamed Source Analysis and moved to the Plan section for the sake of consistency, guidance and clarity.

Reporting designed to help you find what you’re looking for

The new Reporting category in the navigation menu lets you jump straight to Security Reports, Custom Reports, or All Built-in Reports according to your needs. As of this release, you can also access reporting on your hub sites as well as search for Office 365 groups built with dynamic memberships.

Find important workflows across your environments and take action

You can now easily find list, library, and site workflows in your environment by running one of ShareGate Desktop’s new built-in reports or building your own custom one. Out-of-the-box, SharePoint Designer, and Nintex workflows are all supported.

You’ll find this especially useful when it comes time to prepare a migration or copy workflows between sites within SharePoint.

Once you’ve identified your workflows, save time by acting on them in bulk. ShareGate Desktop now lets you enable or disable multiple workflows simultaneously and even modify their trigger with a single action. Disabling workflows in bulk before running a migration is often recommended to help you reduce errors.

Nintex 2019 support

Also new in ShareGate Desktop 10.0 is the ability to copy workflows over to Nintex 2019.

Moving forward

Whether it’s by engaging with us online or stopping by our booth at events, the feedback you give us is what fuels our efforts to improve ShareGate Desktop. We were thrilled to read how our previous release, which introduced scheduling and speed improvements, helped so many of you through challenging migrations. Some even showed us how—with the right setup—they were able to migrate more than 5TB of data to Office 365 over a single weekend!

So, what are we crafting next?

  • Improved scheduling experience to edit your copy options
  • Customizable names for migration tasks to make them easier to identify and retrieve
  • Ways to help you reorganize and restructure SharePoint for Office 365 (flattening large site collections into multiple site collections or converting subsites into site collections, for example)
