Product Improvement: Top Navigation Menu

  • Waffle dropdown menu is now located on the top left and listed in alphabetical order.
  • The item within the menu currently selected by User will be excluded from the waffle dropdown menu to enhance user experience.
Product Improvement: Optional Admin Email Address
  • The [AdminEmailAddress] field can now be set as optional instead of mandatory in the custom email success notification template. This allows users the flexibility to still customize and send out success notification emails without the need to input/disclose the admin's email address.
  • Before this update, a "success" email was sent to both the Source and Destination email addresses. For large-scale migrations, it may not be practical or desired to have that email send to the Admin account because of the sheer number of emails. In addition, not all Admin accounts may be monitored. For these reasons, the [AdminEmailAddress] field can now be made optional.
Product Improvement: Diagnostics for SharePoint/OneDrive for Business v2
  • Once SharePoint/OneDrive for Business v2 has finished importing in SharePoint, any error (.err) file in the Azure Blob will be identified and logged into Kibana.
  • This helps BitTitan Support improve troubleshooting.
Product Improvement: Stability when performing "Reset Migration"
  • A clean-up flag is set in the database each time the user performs a reset. When the SharePoint/OneDrive v2 connector starts and sees this flag is set, it cleans up the Azure storage and resets the flag. This ensures that any files left over in the blob which are no longer available in the Source or are already deleted by user will not be migrated again.
Product Fix: Public Folder Advanced Options
  • [Public Folder Migrations] Advanced Option "UseDisplayNamePermissionMatching" added to trigger display name permission matching for Office 365. Default behavior will now only match the SMTP alias.
  • Scenario/Problem: previously, permissions were applied based on matching either the display name or SMPT alias. As a result, there are scenarios whereby mailbox folder sharing permissions are not being migrated correctly.
  • [Public Folder Migrations] Removed Autodiscover option from Public Folder projects
  • Scenario/Problem: prevent delay on customer's end to perform migration and reduce overhead on Support.
