June 24, 2021Migrating to Microsoft 365? harmon.ie Can Help!

If your organization isn’t already on Microsoft 365, you are almost certainly considering the move.

Either way, you know the move involves many considerations, including migrating content, handling permissions, instituting governance policies… and many more. And let’s not forget the need to map and migrate on-premises SharePoint site URLs to new SharePoint Online URLs.

Note that changing those URLs will also require you to update your harmon.ie sites and ‘favorites’ links. If you are wondering, “How do I do that?” – don’t worry. We’ve got you covered… As part of the recent harmon.ie 365 rollout, we included a brand new sites and ‘favorites’ URL migration tool that makes this process simple… and scalable. So simple that it has already been used to effortlessly migrate customers with many hundreds of thousands of SharePoint URLs.

How Does It Work?

The harmon.ie migration tool automatically replaces the URLs of SharePoint sites and favorites defined in harmon.ie, from your old on-premises URLs to your new Microsoft 365 URLs. This process is completely transparent to users, so they start working with the new environment without manually configuring sites and favorites.

The entire process is completed in the following, three simple steps:

  1. Create a mapping table between SharePoint on-premises and Microsoft 365 URLs. This is an Excel sheet with the on-premises URL in one column and the corresponding Microsoft 365 URL in the second column.
  2. Provision a Microsoft 365 site to all users and set it as the social server, using harmon.ie registry keys.
  3. Provision harmon.ie migration registry keys.

That’s it! Now, instruct all your users to restart Outlook and the migration process automatically commences.

It is hard to overstate how much time and troubleshooting effort is eliminated with this tool.
