Businesses that plan to ensure 100% replication when switching from Slack to Teams must focus on every critical area. And since messages are one of the core aspects of Slack, it is crucial to prioritize the nitty-gritty of Slack messages and migrate them comprehensively.
Read this post to understand the process of migrating formats, images, videos, and GIFs of Slack messages (Channel messages and DMs) to Microsoft Teams.
Migrating Formats and Images of Slack DMs
Attributes such as text formats, images, videos, emojis, and others elevate Slack DMs not just in terms of aesthetics but also play a crucial role in improving user productivity and overall work experience. And accurately preserving them is vital for businesses that look forward to replicating their Slack environment in Microsoft Teams.
With CloudFuze as a strategic migration partner, businesses and their IT teams can migrate all or selective Slack DMs to Microsoft Teams while preserving all attributes and metadata.
Here is an example of Slack DMs containing images, emojis, and formats such as bold and numbered lists:
The process of migrating Slack DMs along with formats and images with CloudFuze is straightforward. It starts with configuring Slack as the source and Microsoft Teams as the destination cloud in the CloudFuze webapp.
Another needle mover step is to map user accounts from Slack as the source to Microsoft Teams as the destination.
If your organization has a diverse set of user accounts and if a bulk of them do not accurately match with the new accounts created in Teams, the best approach is to map the source and destination user accounts through CSV.
Here is an example of the replication of formats and images of Slack DMs in Microsoft Teams. Unlike Slack, Microsoft Teams may not show the preview of the migrated images in many cases.
Similar to Slack DMs, it is critical for businesses to ensure a comprehensive replication of Slack Channel messages to ensure workflow continuity post-migration. CloudFuze makes it simple for IT teams to migrate Slack Channel messages in bulk while preserving formats, images, videos, emojis, and other properties.
Here is an example of Slack Channel messages with images, videos, PDFs, and text formatting:
After following the same mapping and migration process as Slack DMs, Channel messages and their attachments and properties will reflect in Teams the way as highlighted in the example below:
