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.

Note: FastTrack participants: For FastTrack, we do not migrate alerts.
