Collection Dashboard

The migrated environment may be very big and complex. The accounts might belong to different offices and geographical locations. Some groups of employees, like top management, Finance or Legal divisions should be given special care when migrating. To make large environments more manageable, organize the accounts into collections. For details how to create collections and use them see Using Collections

Working with Collection Dashboard

A collection acts like “migration project within migration project”. The Collection Dashboard shows the collection-specific summary, allows you to see accounts added to it, create tasks for them, and monitor the progress for the selected subset of accounts.

  • To see accounts included in the collection, click Browse Accounts or just open Accounts tab. You will get the list of accounts that belong to the collection.
  • To see the tasks for collection-specific accounts, use the corresponding widget on the collection dashboard or open Tasks tab.
  • To see the events related to the collection, use the corresponding widget on the collection dashboard or open Events tab.
  • To rename, or delete the collection, click the corresponding buttons in the toolbar.
  • To populate the collection with discovered accounts using comma-separated CSV, file click Fill from File. Refer to Using Collections for details.
  • To return to the project dashboard, click the project name in the navigation bar.

Task Management

From the Tasks list you can control the individual steps of the migration project:

  • Track the task progress and view the results of finished tasks. Select a task to see a details pane in the right pane of the screen for the detailed information and statistics. Use search or filtering to quickly navigate through the list of tasks.
  • Start, stop, and delete tasks.
  • Edit tasks.

To optimize performance you can schedule start for all tasks as necessary. For details see Task Scheduling.

Task Scheduling

To optimize performance you can select schedule options for all tasks using Schedule page of task wizards. This is reasonable for the task that may take a considerable amount of time. The following options are available:

  • Run now
    To create and start the task automatically when the wizard is finished.
  • Schedule
    To create and start the task automatically as scheduled.
  • Run later
    To create and start the task manually.
