If your company is currently using SharePoint Online (Microsoft 365 / Office 365) and planning to migrate to Google Drive (Google Workspace / G Suite),  CloudFuze can help speed up and automate the migration. CloudFuze is one of the very few SharePoint Online to Google Drive migration tools in the world, allowing IT admins to focus on their core priorities while CloudFuze takes care of the migration.

Step 8: Map the Users

CloudFuze has a built-in Auto-Map feature that maps users in the SharePoint Online and  G Suite accounts by matching the email aliases. You can select a few or all the users for migration in this step.


Step 9: Search or Delete Mapped Users

Additionally, you can search for specific users in the search box. You can also remove any mapped pair.

Step 10: CSV or Manual Method

Besides Auto-Map, CloudFuze also supports CSV or manual migration where users can be mapped and paired using a CSV file. The CSV file needs to be uploaded and validated through CloudFuze before the migration begins.

Step 11: Select the Users to be Migrated

As said earlier, choose one, a few, or all the users in SharePoint Online that you want to migrate to Google Drive (G Suite).

Step 12: Map Permissions

CloudFuze, by default, migrates permissions in SharePoint Online to G Suite. Alternatively, you can select custom permissions by clicking on the Edit button next to each other. This will override the default permissions.

Step 13: Choose Migration Options

In this step, you can select a few final options such as migration project/job name, additional emails for notifications, migration type, etc. In most cases, these fields can be left to default.


Step 14: Preview the Migration

Check all your migration settings one final time and click on the Start Migration button. This will start the file migration process. 


Step 15:  Migration In Progress

CloudFuze displays the status as In-Progress during the file migration. At this moment, you can pause or cancel the migration. Keep in mind that pausing or canceling migration will not affect data in the SharePoint Online Account.

Step 16: Migration Has Been Completed

When all the data is migrated over, the status will be shown as ‘Processed’. You can then download the migration report to validate the file transfer by logging into the G Suite account.
