​​​How do I migrate users in batches with DeploymentPro (legacy)? 

Answer:

 

If you want to migrate users in more than one batch when using DeploymentPro (legacy), you need to create multiple DeploymentPro (legacy) projects.​ This will allow each batch of users to receive the install instructions for the DeploymentPro Agent at the ​time/dates defined at the project level.

 
Here's why:
Once you have submitted payment and passed the Confirm Order page, all settings are final. You will not be able to modify the user list of a DeploymentPro (legacy) project, the install or password methods, or customize the email to end users. 

 
Note: You would also choose this option if you were migrating mailbox users during a phased migration, for example, when setting up a short-term hybrid scenario. In such a case, you would create a DeploymentPro (legacy) project for each group of users that you were migrating.
