There are various positive aspects to migrate from Slack to Teams for businesses and employees alike. Here are a few examples:
If your enterprise is already familiar with the Microsoft services and ecosystem, Microsoft Teams will have a minimal learning curve.
Teams offers many features that your employees need and Slack offers, including live text messaging and file sharing.
Microsoft Office 365 information protection and data protection features ensure optimum security for your data and files.
Microsoft Teams offers you in-depth insights into your team’s behavior through the Office 365 activity API.
Like Slack, Microsoft Teams also allows your users to have a conversation in a public or private mode.
Similar to the private channel feature of Slack for discussions, Teams also offers features for direct message functionality.
How to Export Data from Slack for Teams Migration?
The existing Slack service plan determines what can or cannot be migrated to Teams. For instance, some Slack service plans only allow exporting public channels and files while others allow including private channels and direct messages with a DocuSign request. The details can be found in the “About this Workspace” page in Slack. Here are the steps to be performed before exporting data from Slack.
Determine the scope of the Slack to Teams migration by assessing usage patterns of the Slack workspaces.
Use Slack analytics for data such as activity, last use, and the number of users to help determine the Slack channels that have to be migrated to Teams. While messages and files in public channels can be exported by default, content in Private Channels and Direct Messages can be exported from Slack for certain service plans.
Confirm if Apps and Custom Integrations for Slack can be migrated to Teams on a case-by-case basis.
Generate the list of users whose Slack accounts can be mapped to Microsoft work or school accounts and ensure that they have a Teams license.
