SMBs and Enterprises Post-migration Checklist for Slack to MS Teams Migration
There is always the risk of missing data or data leakage during data migration. Therefore, checking whether the entire data set was successfully moved after the Slack to MS Teams migration is complete is important. You must validate several factors to ensure that the migration is successful.
Data validation is an important phase after switching from Slack to Teams since it ensures whether everything has migrated correctly or not. It’s about ensuring that the data on the destination cloud (Teams) is the same as on the source cloud (Slack) to avoid business disruption after implementing Teams.
On migrate from slack to Microsoft teams, ask your team to verify and validate whether the following is migrated successfully:
Migrating data from Slack to Teams might take a few weeks to a few months, depending on the number of users, channels, direct messages, etc., that need to be migrated. And when the migration is in process, users continue using the Slack platform until the new Teams environment goes live. So, to keep up to date with the data, make sure you migrate the delta changes. When a delta migration is performed, it only moves changes made after the last migration. It identifies and migrates the new chat/messages from Slack to Microsoft Teams.
One of CloudFuze best features is delta migration, which allows SMBs and enterprises to migrate incremental changes by comparing modified timestamps. Contact our experts for a seamless transition from Slack to Teams.
3. Validate the Data after Delta Migration
Similar to validating the one-time migration data, it is essential to validate the delta changes migrated. This ensures that the team conversation is up to date and the same as on Slack.
Also, users get the same feel and experience as Slack when using Teams after completing the delta changes migration successfully.
4. Deactivate Your Slack Business Account
Do not forget to deactivate your old cloud account (Slack) after transitioning from Slack to Teams to avoid additional billing. As Slack offers a free plan with limited access to messages, you can archive your entire Slack data.
But note that you will have limited message visibility and file storage access. This is just for those who don’t want to delete their Slack account permanently.
5. Onboard End-Users to Teams
After switching from Slack to Teams, the most important thing on the checklist is that you must successfully onboard employees to the new cloud environment, i.e., Teams. However, IT Admins often find it an extensive and complicated process to grant access to the relevant apps. But with a proper structure in place, you shouldn’t restrict your employees from using essential tools that allow them to collaborate and communicate more effectively and productively.
