Public Folder migration to Office 365


It's no secret: Migrating public folders (and public folder archives) to Office 365 is tricky.

Even if you're moving to Modern Public Folders on Office 365 there are many stumbling blocks that make life difficult (check out our latest blog on the subject).

You also have a wide choice of destinations to might decide to migrate to, such as Groups, SharePoint, Teams, shared mailboxes and other destinations such as Azure or third-party cloud archives.

Essential provides an unbiased vendor approach to technology and solutions for your project, and is able to advise on and recommend products and/or services depending on your scenario and requirements.

Analyse your Current Public Folder Hierarchy

Visualise and drill into your Public Folders before migration to size up the effort and make informed decisions on what needs moving and where...and whether it needs moving at all.

Ensure a Seamless End-user Experience

By checking for mail-enabled folders, data ownership, and permissions in advance you can ensure that Public Folders behave correctly for on-premises and cloud-based users as they migrate.

Zero-downtime Migration Methodology

We can ensure your migration allows business activities to continue uninterrupted, with the option to synchronise content between on-prem and the cloud.

Sticky Bit 4: Migrating Public Folders to Office 365

A few years back you didn’t have an option to migrate your legacy public folders to Office 365 – in fact public folders on-premises were to be end-of-lifed.  SharePoint was initially tabled as an alternative, but this didn’t ‘wash’ with a lot of Microsoft customers because it didn’t offer the same functionality and was over-complicated.
