How to Migrate Group permissions from Box to OneDrive

Migrating permissions is the key to any successful Box to OneDrive migration. If you are an IT admin currently exploring ways to migrate your company’s data from Box to OneDrive, you should keep in mind that permissions can’t be migrated when you do the data transfer manually. Only a cloud office migration platform like CloudFuze can migrate permissions along with data.

Box supports end-user groups. Multiple team members can form as a group to share and collaborate. Similarly, in OneDrive, admins or users with privileges can create user groups. These groups appear throughout the Microsoft365 platform and have product-specific functionalities.
