MigrationWiz Google Source Updates

Users often site UX and UI improvements as the enhancements that are the most practical. After all, with the many processes and protocols we must follow in any complex endeavor, making a tool easier to use or a task simpler is generally the most helpful.

With that in mind, MigrationWiz is making it a little easier to perform migrations when Google is the Source environment. These new feature updates help MigrationWiz be that much easier to use.

While students and faculty are at home, it’s a good time for system upgrades that will enhance collaboration, access, and security. Many colleges, universities, and school systems are planning winter break migrations to move or consolidate tenants and even adopt new collaboration platforms.

If you’re using Google Workspace, MigrationWiz is the tool you need for migrating a wide variety of workloads: Mailboxes, documents, archives, and even collaboration platforms. You can take advantage of low education pricing to move from one Google instance to another, or from Google Workspace to Microsoft Teams. MigrationWiz handles all these workloads:

  • Gmail and Vault, including inbox, folders/labels, email, muted emails, contacts, calendars, and calendar notifications.
  • Drive, including files, folders, permissions, document history, comments, and more.
  • Shared Drives, including documents, permissions, versions, and metadata.

Great education pricing is one thing, but when you’re planning a migration, you should never skimp on experience, capabilities, and security. That’s why BitTitan has been the choice of educational institutions for more than 13 years.

Experienced experts are here to help

BitTitan has migrated thousands of students, faculty, and staff at hundreds of educational institutions all around the globe. While MigrationWiz is known for being intuitive and easy to use, you never have to go it alone, especially if your project is more complex. Our world-class Customer Success team are dedicated migration experts who can help you plan your project.

In fact, now is the perfect time to call so we can connect you with team members who have extensive experience in educational environments – including implementing complex Google Workspace migrations.

Fast, easy, and flexible

Educational institutions choose MigrationWiz because it’s fully automated and 100% SaaS. In fact, if you were expecting to sprint around campus in order to complete your migration, you may have to get your exercise some other way. With MigrationWiz you simply initiate your migration from one centralized dashboard, then use DeploymentPro – which is included – to automate Outlook configuration.

Don’t be fooled, though. Easy doesn’t mean basic. MigrationWiz is highly customizable with advanced options that give you full control over your migration. You’re always in charge of timing, testing, setup, and execution. You can also use project sharing to involve team members across departments for greater visibility and collaboration throughout the migration.

Top security with Azure datacenters

Security is top priority for every migration project, especially in educational settings. You’re responsible for protecting personal information from students and faculty, as well as proprietary documents and research. You must be able to ensure every bit of data is safe throughout the migration process. With MigrationWiz you get the extra security of Azure datacenters. And, your data is always encrypted and never stored.

With BitTitan by your side, you can get a lot done over winter break. So when faculty, staff, and students return, they might not even notice because they’ll be able to get started with the new semester without any disruptions.

Google is changing its pricing policy, how will it affect Education migrations?

Auto provisioning of Shared Mailboxes

MigrationWiz now supports the provisioning of Shared Mailboxes for Google Groups to Microsoft Shared Mailbox migrations. This is an optional UX enhancement for the user and does not require any licenses. This option of “Setting up Shared Mailbox” is available under the “Full Migration” tab.

Update of Autodiscover feature for Google Drive

The Autodiscover process within MigrationWiz can be used to discover items from the Source environment, so that they can be imported into your projects. Autodiscover can now be used on Google Drive for destinations such as OneDrive, Dropbox, SharePoint, and SharePoint GCC/China.

Update of Autodiscover feature for Google Groups

Autodiscover is also a new enhancement to Google Groups source endpoint. This option allows you to generate a list of Google Groups as MigrationWiz will automatically discover all the relevant Google Groups available under the Google Administrator area provided in the Source setting. Once the discovery process is completed, you can click the button “Import Items” or choose to download the CSV file for edits.
