Key Features

There are many advantages to using Metalogix Content Matrix Console, including the following:

Ease of use

Similar to the Windows File Explorer, Metalogix Content Matrix Console has a familiar, tree-based copy-and-paste style user interface.
Valuable data retention

All version chains, metadata, user-edit information, and most views can be preserved.

Multiple site connections

Connect to multiple SharePoint sites, across any number of servers, for easy consolidation or distribution of your SharePoint data.

Working remotely

Do all the heavy lifting for your SharePoint migration from the convenience of your own machine. Metalogix Content Matrix Console connects to any SharePoint site that you can access with your browser, even those outside your organization's intranet.

Batch work

Multiple list migration operations can be batched up for convenience, and re-run at any time. Run your migrations at night and view the results/logs in the morning.


All migration activity is done through the supported SharePoint APIs. There are no unsupported, direct writes to the SharePoint database.
PowerShell functionality

PowerShell functionality is incorporated into the Metalogix Content Matrix User Interface (UI), and any action in the UI can also be performed with PowerShell. Cmdlets are also included, so scripts can be manually created and run.
