Microsoft Teams Migration

On Demand Migration for Teams securely migrates Microsoft Teams and associated Microsoft 365 Groups across Microsoft 365 tenants. You can also use this dashboard for migration of content for Microsoft 365 Groups without Teams functionality. (Microsoft 365 Groups Migration). Microsoft Teams migration requires additional licensing.

Basic Microsoft Teams migration workflow consists of the following steps:

# Step
1 Create a migration project (created automatically with New Migration UI)
2 Grant necessary permissions in case these permissions are not already granted (Prerequisites)

IMPORTANT: It is not recommended to use existing user accounts as source and target Azure AD administrator accounts, because it is recommended to remove them for safety reasons after the migration will be completed. These accounts can be removed from teams as described in Finalizing the Migration.

3 Discover teams/groups on the source tenant

On this step you can see names, suggested for target teams. In case you need some changes use manual mapping as described below. There are no provision on the target on this step.

TIP: Organize teams in collections to streamline the provision and migration process

4 Export teams mapping to CSV file
5 Map teams manually using exported CSV file

You can use manual mapping to migrate source team to the target team with another name. If the channel do not exist, it will be provisioned. Also you can use manual mapping to merge several source teams to one target team.

6 Create Microsoft 365 Groups and Provision teams on the target tenant. Target teams will be owned by the target Azure AD administrator account that is used to perform the provisioning.
  • Source Azure AD account will be added to all source teams as a member, and source private channels as an owner.
  • Target Azure AD account will be added to all target teams and Microsoft 365 Groups as a member and an owner, and target private channels as an owner

These accounts can be removed from teams as described in Finalizing the Migration.

7 Migrate teams

Migrate / merge all conversations (including inline content) from the source to target channels.

  • Target Azure AD account will own all private channels migrated to the target.
8 Re-migrate teams to incorporate supported changes made after the migration task (step 7) was started.
9 Monitor the progress and track issues

What We Migrate

IMPORTANT: Teams migration from one education tenant (Microsoft 365 for Education) to another is partially supported. The following team types and supported content can be migrated:

  • Standard Team
  • Class Team
  • PLC Team
  • Staff Team

During provisioning the teams with the same type will be created in the target tenant. Provisioning of public teams is not supported for migration scenarios from one education tenant to another.

Assignment app, personal OneNote notebook linked to a Teams channel and the OneNote tab linked to another team are currently not supported. Links to files in migrated messages are not supported in case these links point to files located outside the default SharePoint URL. These links are missing in the target.

Meeting recordings

Recordings of scheduled meetings in a team channel, stored in SharePoint/OneDrive, are migrated.

  • Meeting recordings stored in Microsoft Stream (Classic) are not migrated; the link to the recording on the source team channel is retained.
  • On Demand does not support meeting recordings in a group chat. Recordings in group chatsand one-to-one chats cannot be migrated with the On Demand Migration for Teams service.
