The "Files" section of the console is also very commonly accessed while managing a migration. Like the "Users" section, it provides a lot of functionality to determine status and granular details of a migration. Actions can be executed on specific files when appropriate. The options available in the "Files" sub-menu's home ribbon are as follows:
The Watched items section shows all files and users that have been flagged for watching. This provides a consolidate view of key items. The home ribbon for this sub-menu and each action menu changes depending what is selected, a user or a file. The ribbons and action menu options are the same as their respective.
The Events section shows all unacknowledged events that have occurred on the system since deployed. The default view of the Events grid shows the Type, Source, Event details, a count of the occurrences of the events, the level of severity of the event, and the last logged time for the event. The home ribbon for this sub-menu has the following options:
Managing owners is a critical part of a successful migration. The Owners section shows the results of our owner identification efforts; including owner conflicts, warning levels, all ownership related metadata, the probability that ownership has been identified, who a presently is the owner of a file, and who Migration Manager for PSTs thinks should be the owner.
In some migrations, a lot of effort is required in the Owners section to ensure the data discovered is going where it is expected to go. Upon discovery, ownership management can begin and drastically reduce the level of effort required towards the middle and end of a migration. Owner management can also be delayed until later in the migration. If file ownership is not addressed early in the project, the files could be blocked from ingestion due to not meeting the minimum ownership probability threshold.
