I have to say that this release is probably the most impressive one. I’m still amaze on how our development team can deliever that many features with such a high level of quality in only 4 weeks. This April 2012 release is not just adding a brand new tool to the product, but also adds killer features to the existing tools. I’m confident that Sharegate 2.10 will make you smile. Enjoy!
Copy Exchange Public Folders to SharePoint
A brand new tool is now available with the Sharegate product. This tool allows content migration from Exchange Public Folders to SharePoint.
For those who don’t know what’s the Exchange Public Folders, just see it as a way to share documents with other people in your organization using Outlook. With Sharegate, it’s now possible to easily move that content to SharePoint.
The tool description is available here
Migrate Page Layouts and Master Pages
This is a killer feature for SharePoint developers. It’s now possible to migrate page layouts and master pages from a SharePoint site to another. The associate content type on a page layout can be preserved or specified based on the available content types at the destination.
Adjust links inside metadata
This is another killer feature that corrects the URL links during the content migration. Source links are adjusted in order to fit with the destination environment.
Page Layout reference for publishing pages
Preserving the page layout reference is fully supported when migrating a page to another location. It’s even possible to specify the page layout to apply using the property template options.
This feature was requested by many people who wanted to move their pages between the development and production environments.
Flatten folder hierarchy
A new option was added in the property template. A simple checkbox tells Sharegate to completely eliminate the folders during the migration. A folder hierarchy with files will result to a flat list of files in a single location.
Visualize the checked out files
It’s now possible to visualize the checked out files inside the Sharegate file explorer. The checked out icon is displayed when the file is checked out by someone else.
A fresh UI look
A lot of UI improvements were introduced in this release. There’s so many improvements that I can’t even list all of them. Just enjoy our powerful interface and send us your feedback.
