Slack to Teams migration with the smooth transition is crucial for organizations. Enterprises making this move need to be sure about the steps that are performed in the process. If you are amongst the one decided to go for migration for your company, here’s a simple guide that will walk you through the journey of Slack to Teams migration.
Before opting for the migration, check your Slack service plan as that determines what can be moved. How to do it? Log in to your portal and find the Slack service plan information in the workspace tab.
Alright, now the three easy steps! Here you go!
Why do you need inventory assessment?
You might have lots of data and you might be not sure about what to fetch from Slack? When you go for migration, examining the data that needs migration is very important. The entire workspace, including Direct/ Multiparty Chats, channels, messages, files, users, activity, needs to be examined for inventory. Determine what need to be moved.
The workspace in Slack is different from Microsoft Teams. Hence you should identify, review and analyze the channels before going for migration. This process can be quite a time consuming one but it is crucial and helps to go through the analysis before migration.
Although the Team’s chats and Slack’s direct messages are almost identical, migrating direct messages is a different process.
Before migration, the admins or the migration point of contact should build a map for users and channels/chats from Source to target.
There are two different types of mapping,
1. User mapping
We map Slack users with respective target Office 365 users to migrate messages on behalf of actual mapped users.
2. Channel / Chat mapping
We map slack channels/chats with existing MS Teams and Channels to migrate conversations into respective mapped MS Teams and Channels.
Once you finish the Slack to Teams mapping, your channels will go to Teams. You can have as many as 200 channels and 1 general channel per team including the deleted channel, however, if you have more to be migrated, you can divide and break them into groups.
In this step, you just have to migrate the data from Slack to Teams! You will have an almost similar feature and more importantly, there will be no data loss.
Isn’t it simple? Absolutely! But you need to have an impeccable tool for a perfect migration! Else you might land up encountering innumerable errors and bugs resulting in data loss too. To deflect any sort of issues, select the right tool for your Slack to Teams migration.
