* While it may be possible to migrate from earlier versions of SharePoint (e.g., SharePoint 2003), some long out-of-date functionality may present special challenges when migrating to a supported target.  However, Quest Professional Services can provide assistance.

* * Quest also offers products specifically geared toward migrating between a SharePoint Online source and target.  Contact your Quest Account Manager for details.

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.
 
Migration list types

Document libraries, issues, tasks, contacts, announcements, discussions, and custom lists can all be migrated, while preserving views, metadata, and user-edit information.
 
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.
 

Compliance

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.

Product Announcements Splash Screen

When you launch the Metalogix Content Matrix Console, a splash screen displays with the latest Metalogix Content Matrix product announcements.  If you have internet access, you will receive announcements directly from the Quest website.  If you do not have internet access, the splash screen displays offline text included with your Metalogix Content Matrix installation.

You have the option of preventing this screen from displaying in the future by clicking the Do not show this screen again box.  (If you select this option, display of the splash screen will resume the next time you perform a Metalogix Content Matrix Console installation or upgrade.)
