Step 5: Create users

Create your users or import them through a csv file. Create the users. The users have to be created in the following way:

  • specify the source email address;
  • In Target Email, specify the name of the library where you want to migrate. (ex : myLibrary).

If the library does not exist, it will be created automatically by the platform.


NOTE: Data can be migrated to different places. For example, a single folder from one user could be migrated to a unique location, away from the user’s other files. Find out more in this article.

  • Automatically provisions the OneDrive profiles (by default, they are created the first time a user connects to OneDrive).
  • Automatically set the permission to the migration account (by default, only the user has permissions to their OneDrive and nobody else).

Step 7: Migrate

After the pre processing task is completed, select the users that you want to migrate and click on Start. The migration starts automatically.
