"ShareGate - A real SharePoint Swiss Army Tool!"

What do you like best?

Started using Sharegate with just the migration piece a number of years ago. We needed a way to migrate a vast number of files and data to SharePoint in the cloud. After searching far and wide, we found Sharegate, purchased the migration piece, and quickly were moving files to the cloud, around the cloud, setting metadata and more. Awesome! Sharegate continues to improve frequently, adding new functions, tools, plus super responsive customer support!

What do you dislike?

Let's see... What do I dislike about Sharegate? Perhaps that it can't read my mind, figure out what we need, and automatically do it for us.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for or need a one-stop tool for SharePoint, take a hard look at Sharegate! You won't regret it and they offer a free trial.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

After adopting SharePoint online, we quickly found it hard to move things around or in or out of SharePoint. No native tools or support for even say copy and paste records from one site to another. Sharegate solved ALL of that and much more.

"An awesome migration tool from Microsoft "

What do you like best?

Coming to the best part of it is the, we can know the overall score before migration so that any errors coming can be minimised earlier in advance. It provide a large number of features like invenetry tool, numbers of reports, compatibility options for easy and riskfree migration. It provide all the information required to plan a migration and provide the details of efforts needed to migrate in advance. One best part of it is its custumer support, have a very fast and responsive customer support to provide useful information while in problem.

What do you dislike?

Although it is a great migration tool, but when coming to a big batch it somewhere gets stucked. Even have a great customer service but it is not available all the time i.e. 24×7.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We mainly use the sharegate for clous migration as well as file migration from office 365 to sharepoint and sometimes to onedrive. I we have been using this tool from more than 3 years and have a great experience till now. Its simple configuration makes the tool more efficient and flexible for us and encourages us to use it at more places.

What Cloud Migration solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Makes migrations quick and easy"

What do you like best?

we used sharegate to migrate so many documents from our on prem environment to our cloud environment. It made things very quick as it took a lot longer before having shraegate. It has so many features that helped us keep the metadata for migrated documents

What do you dislike?

i sometimes don't like some old features that it has and they don't seem easy to use. interface can be complicated in some specific scenarios. They also made a few updates a while ago that broke our ShareGate but quickly fixed it

Recommendations to others considering the product

We had a few licenses at first only and we used to share those accounts with multiple users and machine to see if this is worth it at first. We saw the value and purchased more licenses for more devices and users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Migration to the cloud.

"Great Tool for Sharepoint and Migration"

Its a great tool for running reports on site collections and migration tools are handy.

What do you dislike?

Can only have it on server as one login would be handy if you could have it on desktop too using one licence.

It allows us to visit teams with document proof of issues with their particular setup. When we are migrating it is handy to have.
