Google Workspace Migration from Microsoft 365

Vast Edge creates an app password before connecting Microsoft 365 to Google Workspace; as it considers Outlook to be a less secure app. Let’s have a look at the step-by-step guide to carry on the migration process:

Step 1 : Verify your domain

Here your Microsoft 365 domain, that you use for G Suite accounts, will be verified. Have a look at Add a domain to Microsoft 365 to complete the whole process in just 2 simple steps.

Step 2 : Add users to Microsoft 365

Here you can choose any of the two options: add users one at a time or multiple at a time. You should also add user licenses.

Step 3 : Create a list of mailboxes to migrate

In this step, you need to create a migration file with the list of Gmail mailboxes to migrate. Creating an Excel file is the easiest way to do it.

Step 4 : Connect Microsoft 365 to Gmail

In order to migrate Gmail mailboxes, Microsoft 365 needs to connect and communicate with Gmail. For this step, Microsoft 365 offers a migration endpoint that describes the strategy to create connections to migrate the mailboxes.

Step 5 : Create a migration batch and start migrating

You have to create a migration batch. For that, visit Admin Center > Exchange in your E-mail console.

Step 6 : Update your DNS records to route Gmail directly to Microsoft 365 or Office 365

In general, email systems use a DNS record known as MX record for delivering emails. Earlier, your MX record was pointing to Gmail system. However, since you have completed your email migration to Microsoft 365, configure your MX record to Microsoft 365 or Office 365.

Step 7 : Stop synchronization with Gmail

Here, you have to verify that email is being routed to Microsoft 365. Afterwards, you can delete the migration batch and stop the synchronization between Gmail and Microsoft 365.

Step 8: Migrate calendar and contacts

Lastly, you can import Gmail calendar and contacts to Outlook. For that, visit the link: Import contacts to Outlook & Google Calendar to Outlook.

Google Workspace Integration

Vast Edge migrates users from G Suite to Microsoft 365 or Office 365 in multiple stages. It requires provisioning like making users mail-enabled for hassle-free migration. Businesses must enable permissions to set SMTP forwarding for a successful migration.

After migration batches are finished, users can use their migrated mailboxes on Microsoft 365 as their primary mailbox. The routing domains can now be removed, as can the G Suite tenant. The migration of mail, calendar, and contacts from G Suite to Microsoft 365 or Office 365 is complete henceforth.

Migration limitations:

The largest email message that can be migrated depends on your transport configuration. The default limit is 35 MB. Other migration limitations are:

Data Type Limitations
Mail Vacation settings, Automatic reply settings, Filters/Rules will not be migrated
Meeting rooms Room bookings will not be migrated
Calendar Shared calendars, cloud attachments, Google Hangout links, and event colors will not be migrated
Contacts A maximum of three email addresses per contact are migrated over
Contact-Tags Gmail tags, contact URLs, and custom tags will not be migrated
