Frequently Asked Questions
How long will it take to migrate to SharePoint Online?
The time it takes to complete your migration depends on several key variables; the amount of data you want to migrate, your bandwidth, migration infrastructure and the performance constraints of your source system. Once we understand your needs and the state of your existing environment we will be able to advise you on a predicted time frame for your migration.
Can SharePoint Online migrations happen during business hours?
Yes, however best practice guidance from Microsoft is to stay outside business hours to achieve peak performance. You may experience lower throughput if migration is performed during business hours due to Microsoft prioritising users over migration processing.
