Microsoft 365 migration FAQ

How long does it take to migrate to Microsoft 365?

The amount of time required to complete a Microsoft 365 migration depends on the scope of your migration. What is the size of the source tenant? What is the amount, type, and level of customization of the data that needs to be migrated? Regardless of the complexity of your migration project, one thing is for certain: planning is the key to successful data migration. Taking the time to plan ahead—including taking an inventory and assessment of your source data—is a crucial part of an effective migration strategy and will make it much easier to complete your migration efficiently and with minimal impact on your end users.

How does ShareGate’s migration tool compare to Microsoft’s SharePoint Migration Tool (SPMT)?

Microsoft’s free SharePoint Migration Tool (SPMT) is good for simple file migrations from file shares. It also performs well when migrating from a vanilla document library that doesn’t contain any document sets, lookups, or custom metadata.

However, it doesn’t offer much guidance through the migration, its reporting capabilities are limited and can be hard to understand, and there’s no way to bulk manage metadata or migrate customized metadata.

For more complex migrations and to obtain customized assistance, Microsoft recommends using a third-party tool such as ShareGate.

Check out our comparison of Microsoft’s SPMT vs. ShareGate’s Teams migration features.

Can I transfer content from Google Drive to Microsoft 365?

And we have a ready-made migration options specifically built to help you import documents from Google Drive.

What changes can I expect with a migration from SharePoint on-prem to Microsoft 365?

If you’ve moving from SharePoint on-prem to SharePoint Online in Microsoft 365, there’s a lot that will already be familiar to you. Plus, if you migrate with a tool like ShareGate, you can copy the content and structure of the infrastructure you’ve already invested time in instead of rebuilding from scratch.

Of course, there is a variable you should be taking into consideration: you’re moving to the cloud. So, if you had SharePoint installed on your servers, upgrading to Microsoft 365 means that you may not have the same features available to you. And if you want to enable new tools like Teams and get the most out of Microsoft 365, you might need to rethink your SharePoint site structure if you have a top-down hierarchy with a lot of subsites. Luckily, ShareGate can help simplify the process and make it easy to adapt the architecture you’ve already built.
