What items are migrated with MigrationWiz?

Answer:

Here is a list of what MigrationWiz will migrate, using the different protocols and migration types.

Refer to the What systems do you currently support? article for more information about the services that can be used as Sources and Destinations

Mailbox Migrations:

  • Amazon S3: Inbox, Folders, Email, Contacts, Calendars, Tasks, Journals, Notes, Server-Side Rules
  • Microsoft Office 365: Inbox, Folders, Email, Contacts, Calendars, Tasks, Journals, Notes, Server-Side Rules, Folder Permissions, IPM.Post (when destination is Exchange or Office 365).
  • Exchange Server 2003 (Source Only): Inbox, Folders, Email, Contacts, Calendars, Tasks, Journals, Notes, IPM.Post (when destination is Exchange or Office 365).
  • Exchange Server 2007+: Inbox, Folders, Email, Contacts, Calendars, Tasks, Journals, Notes, BCC Recipients, IPM.Post (when destination is Exchange or Office 365).
  • Exchange Server 2010 SP1+: Inbox, Folders, Email, Contacts, Calendars, Tasks, Journals, Notes, Server-Side Rules, Folder Permissions, IPM.Post (when destination is Exchange or Office 365).
  • Google Apps: Inbox, Folders/Labels, Email, Muted Email (as regular email), Contacts, Calendars (including links for Google Hangouts within calendar meetings).
    • Note: Links for Google Hangouts are a new default feature added to Google Meeting. Microsoft Office 365 doesn't have the corresponding property to map. Therefore, when migrating to Office 365, the links for Google Hangouts are added to the beginning of the meeting description body text on Office 365.
  • Gmail (Free): Inbox, Folders/Labels, Email, Muted Email (as regular email), Contacts, Calendars
  • GroupWise 7+ (Source Only):
    • Inbox, Folders, Email, Contacts, Calendars, Tasks - if the Destination is Exchange, or Office 365
    • Inbox, Folders, Email - if the Destination is not Exchange or Office 365.
  • Lotus Notes 6.5+ (Source Only): Inbox, Folders, Email, Contacts, Calendars, Tasks
  • Zimbra 6+ (Source Only): Inbox, Folders, Email, Contacts, Calendars, Tasks
  • IMAP: Inbox, Folders, Email
  • POP (Source Only): Inbox, Email
  • Open Xchange: Email, Contacts, Calendars

 

Email properties that are migrated:

  • Date/Time, Subject, Body, Importance, Sensitivity, Size, Item Class, Follow Up flags.
  • Color categories for calendars. The default colors will be maintained during migration. However, if additional color categories have been defined at the Source, other than those supported at the Destination, then these will not be migrated. Instead, they will be converted to the default calendar color at the Destination. For example, Google supports more calendar colors than Office 365. Any calendar colors on Google that are not any of the six (6) default colors on Office 365 (blue, orange, green, purple, red, yellow) will be converted to the default color on Office 365 (light red).

 

Public Folder Migrations:

Note: Public Folders can only be migrated to other public folders or shared mailboxes. We do not migrate Public Folders to individual user mailboxes or vice versa.

  • Exchange 2003: [Public Folder migrations not supported]
  • Exchange 2007: Public Folders, Subfolders
  • Exchange 2010 SP1+: Public Folders, Subfolders, User Permissions
  • Office 365: Public Folders, Subfolders, User Permissions

 

Document Migrations:

Note: This is not an exhaustive list. It includes only the typical Destinations. The complete list of supported Destinations can be seen under Destination settings, when creating the project.

  • Box: Folders, Shared Folders in your Box, Code Files (Xml, cs, cpp, h, etc.), Documents (docx, doc, odt, csv, pdf, etc.), Images (png, jpg, etc.), Forms, Executables (exe), Videos (avi, mp4, etc.), Audio Files (mp3, wav, etc.). Typical Destinations: OneDrive, SharePoint Online.

    Notes:
    • Although we do migrate Shared Folders and items (including items that have been shared with you), Shared Folders and items do not maintain shared status at the Destination.
    • Permissions are migrated from the Source Box environment.
  • Dropbox: Folders, Shared Folders, permissions, Code Files (Xml, cs, cpp, h, etc.), Documents (docx, doc, odt, csv, pdf, etc.), Images (png, jpg, etc.), Forms, Executables (exe), Videos (avi, mp4, etc.), Audio Files (mp3, wav, etc.). Typical Destinations: OneDrive for Business.

    Notes:
    • Although we do migrate Shared Folders and items (including items that have been shared with you) when Dropbox is configured as the Source, Shared Folders and items do not maintain shared status at the Destination.
    • Permissions are not migrated when Dropbox is configured as the Destination, and administrator credentials are not entered when the Dropbox endpoint is added. That is, permissions are not migrated when individual users must provide their credentials for a document migration project.
  • File server (Source only): Folder structure, files, and permissions. Typical Destinations: OneDrive for Business (typically for home directories) and SharePoint Online (for remainder, e.g., all shared documents).
  • Google Drive: Folders, Shared Folders in your Drive, permissions, Google Apps native files except Google Forms, Code Files (Xml, cs, cpp, h, etc.), Documents (docx, doc, odt, csv, pdf, etc.), Images (png, jpg, etc.), Executables (exe), Videos (avi, mp4, etc.), Audio Files (mp3, wave, etc.). Typical Destinations: OneDrive for Business, Google Drive.
  • OneDrive for Business: Folders, Shared Folders, permissions, Code Files (Xml, cs, cpp, h, etc.), Documents (docx, doc, odt, cs, pdf, etc.), Images (png, jpg, etc.), Forms, Executables (exe), Videos (avi, mp4, etc.), Audio Files (mp3, wav, etc.). Typical destinations: OneDrive for Business, Google Drive.
  • SharePoint Online: Document libraries and permissions. Typical Destination: SharePoint Online.
  • Google Sites: Files on Google Sites that are of the "File cabinet" page type can be migrated using MigrationWiz to SharePoint Online document libraries. The migration includes both documents and document permissions.‚Äč
    • Note: 

There are three types of Google sites. These are listed below, along with explanatory text and the expected migration results.

    1. Legacy sites.

      • Not supported.
      • Explanation: These are sites that were created many years ago. The current Google Sites REST API is unable to access these legacy sites, and thus they cannot be migrated using MigrationWiz.
      • Migration result: If a migration attempt is made, no sites will discovered, and an error message will be returned. The error will state: "No sites are under this domain."
    2. Classic sites.
      • Supported.
      • Explanation: The existing Google Sites REST API only works with the sites created prior to Nov. 2016.
      • Migration result: Google calls these "Classic Sites" and they are fully supported for migration.
    3. New sites.
      • Not supported.
      • Explanation: Any site created after Nov. 2016 is automatically considered to be a New site. The existing Google API does not work properly with a New site, and so New Sites are not supported for migration.
      • Migration result: If a migration attempt is made, the file cabinets within the Site will become anonymous, so there will not be an ID/Name to use to retrieve the file folder via the Google API.
