Export Metadata and Import and Copy

    I am trying to import different versions with ShareGate. 
    If I read this documentation the naming convention should be as follows: Filename.[version number].extension

    But the shown examples are wrong: For example, the version 1.0 of the file "SomeFileName.txt" should be saved as "SomeFileName0.1.txt". 


    In this example there is missing one point before the versionnumber.

    Hello Yousaf, A.U.

    That was definitely an oversight on our part, and it has been corrected!

    Thanks for keeping our articles honest ;)

    My ShareGate Ver does not have Import and Copy function. is this because of my version?

    Hello Andy! Yes, we introduced the feature later. We recommend updating if you can!

    Updating gets you new features at no extra cost. ShareGate Desktop releases some game-changing features with each major version, as well as bug fixes. 

    We recommend you follow our Releases section to get notified each time we put out a new version or patch!

    Thank you!

    hi there,

    So if I just want to update metadata, and not move any data; I use the above method with Source and destination being the same?

    Hi There,


    I'm doing a One Drive for Business Migration on one of my client. So as per the part of the migration i will be need to migrate meta data. In this instance i will be doing only selected folder migrating from One Tenant to Another Tenant (Both SharePoint Online). So i have 1000 odd users to migrate from. Since exporting data manually from ui and importing is a hectic work i have decided to use PowerShell for this since i can later automate the same. I know there is a way to import metadata excel from Copy-Content PowerShell command. But is there way to Export these metadata by PowerShell iteself? Please respond soon.
