How to Migrate Data From Slack to Teams

1. Introduction

As Microsoft Teams offers vast benefits over Slack, many companies plan to switch from Slack to Teams. So, if you are one such company that wants to break up with Slack and decide to move to the Office 365 environment, which offers Teams for free as part of their applications, this article is for you. It is a big task for IT Admins to migrate the files from Slack with zero data loss regardless of the company size.

All your concerns about how the files migration is done, where it is stored in Teams after migration, how to access them, is the migration secured, which migration tool to consider, etc., are addressed in this article. You can either refer to the Slack to Teams migration guide or connect with migration experts to understand the complete migration process in detail.

2. Is file migration possible from slack to teams?

Though the manual migration of your company’s Slack files and attachments to Microsoft Teams seems like a simple process, there are a few points you should consider:

  • Files need to be converted into HTML to perform the migration
  • During the migration, some files may be lost and can’t be retrieved
  • On any of the files shared or received, there will be no timestamps
  • A lot of manual power and time required to migrate

As a result, if you have many files and want to migrate them easily without any data loss, you should opt for a third-party service that keeps your data safe during the Slack to Teams migration process.

3. How does Cloudfuze migrate files from slack to teams?

CloudFuze automates the migration for both files included in the direct messages and channels (public and private) with pre-defined mappings while preserving appropriate permissions. Users are authorized and mapped with their respective email addresses, as shown in the image below.

If there is any change in the email addresses in the destination, then CloudFuze migrates by importing a CSV file where the users are mapped manually as per the company requirements.
You can select only the channels you want to migrate by checking the box before the channel name or selecting all the channels as per your needs. Note that the files from the selected channels will only get migrated to the destination, i.e., Microsoft Teams.

4. Where are the migrated files stored?

All the files you shared or received will be migrated and available in the respective chats and can be accessed in the same way you access them on Slack. In addition, all the files of direct messages get stored in your OneDrive and all the channel files migrated will get stored in the SharePoint Online document library with as-is authorship information and the respective channel names, which makes it easy for you to find and open a file.

5. How do the files work after the migration?

The files are migrated as is, which means files shared through links like Google Doc links are migrated and can be accessed with the same link in the destination. All the other attached files, such as any Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and more, are migrated and accessed in the same format.
