Cloudiway migrates all Slack Channels, Private and Standard.
The Cloudiway migration tool supports all versions of Slack, standard, paid, and unpaid.
Slack Channels are migrated into Microsoft Teams.
When migrating Slack to MS Teams, you have 3 options:
- 1- Migrate a Slack Channel into a Team (General Channel of the Team).
- 2- Migrate a Slack Channel into a Channel of a Team.
- 3- Migrate a Slack Channel into a Private channel of a Team.
What is migrated?
- Standard (public) and Private Channels.
- Files under the channels.
- Channel messages. (Links to files and images are not migrated).
- Private channels memberships.
- Slack Conversations are migrated into an HTML file in the target
- The 20 most recent channel conversation posts will be migrated into the target channel conversation.
Option 1: Migrate Slack to Team
In order to migrate a Slack to a Team, you have to specify the name of the Team (prefix of email address) in the target name in the Cloudiway portal.
In this example, we are migrating a Slack Channel called design into a Team called design. We have to specify “design” in the target name field.
If the Team design does not exist in the target, it will be created with the pre-processing task. Otherwise, the migration engine will just bind to it and migrate the data into the default General Channel of this Team.
Option 2: Migrate into a specific Channel of a Team
If you want to migrate into a specific channel of a Team instead of the General Channel, in the Target Name field, you have to specify the name of your Team and the name of the Channel in the Target Channel Name (Optional).
Example: If I want to migrate a Slack Channel called dvt to a Channel called Programming under a Team that has the email address firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: If the Team or the channel doesn’t exist in the target, they will get created with the pre-processing task.
Option 3: Migrate to a Teams Private Channel
If you want to migrate into a specific Private channel of a Team, you have to enable the “Migrate to Private Channel” option.
Example: If I want to migrate a Slack Private Channel called Paris to a Private Teams Channel called Versailles under a Team that has the email address email@example.com
Note: If the Team or the channel don’t exist in the target, they will get created with the pre-processing task.
Slack Migration, Before and After
Here’s a screenshot of a Private Slack Channel called Paris. It has some messages and some files (Teams_v2.psm1 and PdfBoring.pdf) attached.
It is going to be migrated to a Private Slack Channel Called Versailles Under a Team Called IleDeFrance.
Please beware that the chat messages are posted with a timestamp of the migration and will appear on the bottom of the message thread. Also, please note that if a message error out and you restart the migration, that message will be pushed during a delta pass and will appear again on the bottom of the thread. (This will cause a chronological disorder in the messages). This is a Microsoft Graph API limitation.
The files and messages are migrated.
