Migrate Microsoft Teams Chatrooms/Channels
Support migration of Microsoft Teams
We need to do a tenant to tenant migration of Office 365. Your tool looks like it could aid with that, but my question is about Microsoft Teams migration. Aside from the Teams content that is in SharePoint, I have not found any supported method to other content from teams such as chats and channel conversation. Is Sharegate working on this?
Starting today, you can now migrate Microsoft Teams using ShareGate Desktop. This is the first version and we will keep improving it over the upcoming months.
For the full release notes, please see: https://support-desktop.sharegate.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043621432
We have a team with channels. Each channel contains a opportunity. When the opportunity is approved we want to move the files and conversations of this channel to a new projectteam. Is it possible to migrate a single channel to another team.
Yes! You can follow the thread here: https://feedback.sharegate.com/forums/912880/suggestions/40532320
Have a nice day!

Jean-Philippe - you mentioned below that you'd create a feature request for the ability to copy content from one team to another team within the same tenant. Has that been created, and if so, is it something I/my colleagues can vote for?

Hi Team, after started using new version 13.0.0, I realized about the need of migrate Teams over already existing ones in destination Tenant. But, I only have the chance to create Teams and not select those I have already created. Any chances to work with a mapping file as input with source vs destination Teams paths/URLs?
Also, there is a diferent naming convention in the new Tenant, and I have several Teams to migrate for one acq (+900), so it is very hard to change the names one by one.
Thanks for sending this in! Just to be clear, you'd like to copy content from a team to another team within the same tenant? Right now, you can already copy files since they're stored in SharePoint. When it comes to conversations and other components of teams, we can't yet when but this is clearly something that we might support in the future. The idea of "merging" 2 teams is something that we always knew could be needed at some point.
I will create a new feature request for this.
My organisation has one very large tenant and a small test environment we hardly ever use. Will it eventually be possible to copy the contents of a team to another one in the same tenant?
Yes! Microsoft Teams can now be copied with ShareGate Desktop.

Has this released today?
The May 26 release date is perfect timing, working on a current customer effort and this will be a major win!
Are there any updates on the timeline for the deployment of of your Teams Migration Tool?
Will this be tenant-to-tenant only migration? Our need is to migrate channels, teams, and conversations within our own tenant.
Awesome news! Looking forward to using it! It would be great to include Planner Boards and Stream videos, but I don't think Microsoft even has the APIs available for those yet. Also migrating emails and calendars - basically the whole O365 Group object :)
You'll be please to hear that we are planning on releasing the Teams migration capabilities on May 26.
We'll keep you posted if the situation changes!
Do we have an update on when this will be available?
Andreas Aasheim commented
Do you have a more exact date of implementation?
You'll be happy to hear that Microsoft Teams Migration will be included in ShareGate Desktop at no extra cost!
Any ideas regarding the licenses. Will this an additonal license?

Could you please confirm, whether we can migrate/Move Microsoft o365 Teams to Another tenant o365 Teams using ShareGate.

This would be a game-changer for planning and maintaining my org's Teams architecture. Is some point before Summer 2020 still looking like an accurate ETA?

This would be ideal!!
We have 2 Tenets: Tenet1 is our Corporate O365 tenet, which is what we're using moving forward. However, Tenet2 exists with a couple of departments who bought it independently because they wanted to test Office 365 a couple years ago. Tenet2 is heavily used by one department, leveraging Private Channels and Chat.
We'd love a way to be able to migrate Tenet2 into Tenet1 without losing Channel Posts (Standard and Private), Documents, Conversations (within documents and posts), Group Membership, Teams Settings, and Mailboxes.
We'd also like to have a way to re-organize the Teams (creating one large team with different channels instead of the 15 separate teams they currently have)
