Sharegate 2.2 – Copy SharePoint version history and more


After a month of hard work, we just released Sharegate 2.2 with powerful features based on great feedback received from our users.


Property mappings

It’s now possible to change the property mappings between your source and destination. Let’s say you have a column called « Name » that you want to copy to a different list having a column called « Fullname ». We added an intuitive interface that allows you to map your properties in a drag & drop fashion. It’s simple, powerful and it works just fine. Be careful, you can only map properties of the same type.

Property mappings

Keep version history

We added an option in the property template that allows you to copy SharePoint version history when migrating your documents and items.

Retain version history

Keep authors and timestamps

We added another option that allows you to preserve the created and modified information when copying your documents and items. To use this feature with SharePoint 2007, you must install the Sharegate Extension on your server.

Keep modified, modified by, created and created by

Drag & drop your files, documents and items

We improved the user experience by adding the drag and drop support. You can also use it directly from Windows Explorer.
