Accommodate Channels When Migrating from Slack to MS Teams

The idea of migrating all members of Slack Channels to Microsoft Teams can seem overwhelming and challenging for businesses and their IT teams planning a Slack to Teams migration. However, with strategic approaches, even inexperienced IT teams can streamline the process and ensure that Microsoft Teams accommodates all the migrated users.

Explore this post to learn the approaches of accommodating Slack Channel members through CloudFuze’s proven Slack to Teams migration methodologies.

Accommodating Slack Public Channel Members in Microsoft Teams

Mapping and migrating Slack Public Channel members is one part; another crucial part is to ensure that they can get accommodated in Microsoft Teams. As per Microsoft’s official guidelines, each team in Microsoft Teams can accommodate up to 25,000 members.

With CloudFuze, the approach is straightforward and lightweight. When migrating Slack Channels, CloudFuze will automatically create a team in Microsoft Teams and channels under it. As a next step, CloudFuze will add members of the Slack Public Channels to the respective channels in the relevant team in Microsoft Teams.
