Often businesses wanting to get their company on Microsoft 365 are confused and have lots of questions about the whole process: is everything moved at once? should it be broken down into parts? Can it be done themselves or do they need help? And who exactly is going to help? Microsoft? Who will the company purchase their 365 subscription from? Some third-party vendor or directly from Microsoft, Will old data be merged or is it a fresh start? Questions are hard to answer since most vendors don’t aim their migration services at helping small firms migrate to the Microsoft 365 Cloud. Also firms only need to do the migration once, and don’t need to purchase monthly subscriptions for migration tools.
Get a Fresh Start on the Cloud With Our 365 Migrate Service. We start with setting up our customers with a Microsoft 365 subscription – ready to go, to move company data and email. Doing the simplest thing first is users’ personal data off their PCs, good thing is, with everyone to do it themselves. So now, once you have signed up with Compliant Workspace, here’s what each person in your company can do themselves as the first step: Installing the OneDrive Sync Tool is the first thing each employee must do to start the move to Microsoft 365 because when a new profile is created on the cloud, they won’t have access to their local data, and having moved all personal data to OneDrive before they start the migration will have it available to import when they get on the cloud. Then second step to getting a business on Microsoft 365 is migrating all employees to Exchange Online, At this point, firms need to change important Internet settings which affect the flow of email. This means the MX records setting in the company DNS needs to be accessed and updated, also any filtering services that run within the company will need to be disabled since Microsoft 365 will perform all the mail filtering for the firm once this switch is made.
