Figure 2: Example Action Menu
Watch this video to learn more about navigating Users and Mailboxes.
A user within Power365 is any Microsoft 365 or Active Directory objects with an associated Mailbox. This includes users, rooms, equipment, shared and group mailboxes.
After you have discovered or imported your users.
You may navigate to your users and mailboxes from the Project Dashboard or main menu.
From the Dashboard, just click Total Users to open the user management view or simply choose Users + Mailboxes from the main menu.
Yes, you can filter the list by many criteria including migration wave and synchronization status. The list will narrow as you add criteria.
When you have narrowed your search, you can select one or more users, and then perform any actions against them or choose View Selected User to narrow your view even more. You may narrow the list by entering a search term. Each column can be sorted via the directional arrows.
The superscript "s" and "t" represent the source and target. The Types column contains the source mailbox recipient type and the Typet column contains the target mailbox recipient type.
The Outlook column displays the Outlook cutover status for the user.
The six possible states are:
- Waiting – The Cutover job is in the Updating Profile state
- Complete – The Cutover job is in the Updated Profile state.
- Error – The Cutover job is in the Update Profile Error state.
- Disabled – The assigned migration profile for the user has the Outlook Cutover option disabled.
- Silent – The assigned migration profile for the user has the Outlook Cutover option set to use the EXE installer.
- Manual – The assigned migration profile for the user has the Outlook Cutover option set to use the MSI installer.
Double-clicking on a user will bring up detailed information about the status of all processes in progress for that user.
With a Power365 Premium Integration Project and license, you can discover all your groups and teams, get their sizes, organize them into migration waves, create them in the target, copy their content, members and much more.
Microsoft Office 365 Groups are a shared workspace for email, conversations, files, and events where group members can collectively get stuff done.
Available through the Microsoft 365 suite of cloud services, Office 365 Groups allows users to create and manage ad hoc "groups" for collaboration. The group provides members access to a shared inbox (conversations), calendar and file repository.
For more information, check out these Microsoft articles on the topics.
Yes. Available now with Power365 Premium Integration Projects, you can easily migrate your Office 365 Group conversations (inbox), calendar and files. To prepare for data migrations, Power365 Directory Synchronization is utilized to create destination groups, convert existing groups, synchronize group membership, and synchronize selected attributes related to the group.
Power365 Directory Sync supports the following related to Groups creation and sync. Mail-Enabled groups are also supported.
Local Group Types:
Local Group Scopes:
- Domain Local
Cloud Group Types:
- Office 365
- Distribution List
Power365 Directory Sync supports all known attribute and property mappings between matched objects. For more information about mappings, please see this help topic.
Yes. Membership and ownership are fully supported.
Yes. Power365 Directory Sync keeps group changes in synchronization as long as required. Power365 Directory Sync will process the full group life cycle, from beginning to end.
Yes, Integration projects sync group membership over to the target and update it when changes are made in the source to keep it up to date for the duration of the project. Note, it will only sync changes made to source members that are matched to an object in the target. If there are group members in the source that do not have a match in the target, those members and changes to their membership will not be synced.
You can have Power365 discover all your distribution groups, but in a large environment you may want a smaller subset. The easy solution is to just upload a list. You can download a sample file. There’s just a single column, listing each group that you would like to include in the project.
Power365 can migrate distribution groups from source to target. Power365 will look in the target for distribution groups that match those in the source. You must choose the attributes that Power365 will use to make this determination.
The External Email Address attribute is usually sufficient, but you can add additional attributes or remove existing ones. Matching is processed in the order listed. If there is no match on the first attribute, Power365 moves down the list.
If no match is found, Power365 can create the target distribution group for you.
Microsoft Teams is a Group Chat feature of Microsoft 365 that brings everything together in a shared workspace where you can chat, meet, share files, and work with business apps.
Yes, Power365 can migrate Office 365 Groups and Microsoft Teams.
Power365 supports migration to and from the following:
|Source Object||Target Object||Options|
|Office 365 Group||Office 365 Group||Convert to Team|
|Office 365 Group||Team|
Power365 presently migrates the following data related to Microsoft Teams:
- Teams & Group Properties (Privacy, Visibility and much more)
- Group Mailbox & Calendar
- Files & Folders
- Channel Conversation History
- Channel Reactions
- Members & Owners
- Private Channels
For the complete list of supported and unsupported content types, visit our Online Help Center.
Yes, Power365 will automatically create the target group or team when the Prepare action is run. For more details on preparing groups and teams for migration, visit our Online Help Center.
Yes, Power365 Directory Sync will synchronize Groups and Teams membership and ownership for matching users. All members and owners that are required for synchronization must exist in the target and must be matched in Power365. Otherwise, they will be skipped.
It’s very simple, the process is no different than migrating an Office 365 Group. For more information, see our Online Help Center to get started.
Power365 provides an option within the migration profile to convert your groups to teams. This activity will occur during the provisioning step, just before the first data sync. For more information, please visit our Online Help Center to get started.
Yes, Microsoft Team’s Channel Conversation history from the source Teams is migrated to the target Teams along with the corresponding Files, Folders and Links to those files. Private or Group Chats are not supported.
Before the conversations are migrated, the Channels and folder structure are created in the target Teams. Due to the current limitations of the Microsoft API available for Channel Conversation, the Conversations are migrated using two (2) methods.
- Direct to Conversations – Due to MS API limitations a subset of the most recent (default age is 30 days) 200 (default max) conversations items are migrated to the target Teams Channel Conversation. Therefore, users may directly interact with the most recent posts from each Channel migrated.
- Complete History File – Due to the API limitations, Power365 migrates all channel conversations into a single, easy to use file that can be accessed from within that channel. The file provides an easy to navigate history of your original channel conversations. The history file includes the same usable functionality, such a clickable attachment links and collapsible message threads.
Channels, files and folders are migrated during a sync job. Conversations are migrated during the cutover event in order to capture the most recent version of the channel conversations.
In addition to the conversation themselves there is additional data a chat post may contain. The following lists what is currently supported.
- Original Author Name matched and translated to target user.
- Original posting date and time information.
- All the rich text content from the conversation.
- Collapsible reply threads.
- Reactions with corresponding icons with the original author and posting date/time.
- Attachments with hyperlink to migrated file.
- Emojis, GIFs and images.
Once a Team is cutover, channel conversations can no longer be migrated. However, channel conversations are migrated at the end of the Teams migration, during cutover in order to capture to most recent version of the data.
Yes, the Power365 sync engine maintains the hyperlink to the migrated file. The user may simple click the file link to open the migrated file from the channel conversation or history file.
Yes, Private Channels are migrated the same way as Public Channels.
