How To Copy Files From Box to OneDrive With Embedded Links

embedded links for box to onedrive

Transferring embedded links is one of the primary focus areas for businesses planning to copy files from Box to OneDrive (or from any other source to the destination cloud). This is because embedded links play a critical role in collaboration and resource access.

CloudFuze makes it hassle-free for Enterprises, SMBs, and MSPs to transfer embedded links along with user accounts and data from Box to OneDrive (and in other migration combinations).

This guide is designed to help businesses understand the importance of migrating embedded links and how CloudFuze can simplify the entire process.

Why Is It Critical for Businesses to Transfer Embedded Links?

Embedded links play a similar role as permissions, shared links, and in-line comments in maintaining the collaboration between individual employees and their teams. Therefore, businesses of all sizes and industries planning to replicate the collaboration structure in the destination cloud (OneDrive for Business) must have the embedded links transferred accurately.

For example, a company’s marketing team may rely on a couple of mother documents or spreadsheets to access links to all the other resource files. In such a case, migrating those mother documents and spreadsheets along with the embedded links becomes a mission-critical task.
Retaining the embedded links with 100% accuracy, in turn, helps individual employees and their team benefit in many ways, including:

  • A smooth and structured onboarding (to the destination)
  • Continuity in the collaboration processes used before in the source cloud (Box)
  • No or minimum loss in productivity and overall operational efficiency
