How to migrate a Team Folder
From the Add New Migration Item menu (accessed via ‘Add items to migrate’ > ‘Add user’):
- ‘Export Type: ‘User’
- Export Name: This should be the email address of the Team Folder Owner specified in Step 1 of CloudM Migrate.
- Select the destination object type (Shared Drive in this example)
- The ‘Given Name / Item Name’ will be used as a name to create the destination Shared Drive.
- This must be the exact name (or ID) of the destination Shared Drive, in this case it’s the same as the ‘Given Name’.
- ‘Documents Path’ should be the exact name of the folder that is to be migrated (spaces are acceptable).
Note: To migrate multiple Team Folders, follow the above steps again, you can use the same export name for multiple migration items, as long as the Documents Path ( the Team Folder) is different.
