Migration Assessment Scan: Alerts

Learn how to fix issues with alerts during migration.

Overview

Most migration tools do not migrate alerts. Alerts are created on items, lists, and libraries to notify a user of when content changed. This report provides visibility into the alerts that are currently configured in the source environment. If users would like to be notified of content changes after the migration, they will need to configure the alerts on the new environment.   As a result of alerts not migrating, we provide a lot of raw data associated with the alerts should the need arise to recreate the alerts post migration.

Data Migration

Basic migration tools do not migrate alerts.

Important: Any site that is configured as “No Access” (locked), in SharePoint will be skipped. To see a list of locked site collections see the Locked Sites scan output.

Preparing for Migration

Provide communication with users to avoid confusion post migration.

Post Migration

Provide communication with users to avoid confusion post migration.
