How to Use MigrationWiz

MigrationWiz is an online application created by BitTitan that facilitates the automation of migration from a source service to a range of supported destination services without requiring extensive technical skills. Supported services include:

  • Mailboxes (e.g. Gmail, Exchange, Office365)
  • Cloud Documents (e.g. Dropbox, Google Drive, SharePoint)
  • Public Folders (e.g. Exchange, Office365)
  • Archives (e.g. Google Vault, Office365), including large-scale enterprise archives
  • Collaboration Data (e.g. Google Sites, SharePoint)
  • Databases (e.g. Microsoft SQL, Microsoft Azure SQL)

After creating an account, you will be able to manage users, create migration projects and access as few basic tools but to perform anything more than a Trial Migration (recreates first-level folder hierarchy at the destination only) a MigrationWiz subscription is required for each user being migrated.

This starter guide will focus on project creation, user management and migration for a mailbox migration project. These steps can be recreated for other project types since the MigrationWiz interface is consistent throughout the application.

Project Creation

1. Navigate to https://migrationwiz.bittitan.com/app/. Your window should look like this:

2. Click the green Start Migrating Now button. You should arrive at this page:

3. Click the green Create Project button. You will see a range of migration types:

4. Select Create A Mailbox Project and click Next Step.

You should now be in the Project Information section:

5. In the Project Name field, enter a name for the project (e.g. Mailbox Migration – Test Inc.)

6. Under Customer click New to create a new customer

7. Enter details of the customer you’re servicing and click Save

You should now be in the Source Settings section:

8. Under Endpoint click New to specify the service type you are migrating from

9. In the Endpoint Name field, enter a name for the service (e.g. Gmail – Test Inc.)

10. Under Endpoint Type select a service type from the dropdown menu. If you are unsure what to select, click, click Find My Service Provider for a list of service providers and services.

11. Provide login details for the customer’s administrator account if you have them, otherwise select Do not provide credentials

12. Click Add

13. Click Destination Settings on the left sidebar

You should now be in the Destination Settings section:

14. Perform steps 8 to 12 again to create your destination service

15. Click Save And Go To Summary

You should now be in the Project Summary section:

16. Click Save Project

You have successfully created a migration project, but MigrationWiz needs details about your client’s users before a migration is possible.

User Management

Skip steps 1 to 3 if you’re continuing from the above section, as you should have been automatically directed to the relevant page.

1. Navigate to https://migrationwiz.bittitan.com/app/

2. Click the green Go To My Projects button

There should now be a list of your projects on this page:

3. Click the project you wish to add users to

4. You will be presented with 4 green buttons corresponding to methods of adding users:

a. Click Add from MSPComplete if you already have users stored in MSPComplete, which will bring up a list of users you can apply a filter to and select from

b. Click Bulk Add if you have a .csv file of users or if you would like to input user details through an online spreadsheet interface

c. Click Autodiscover Items if you would like to automatically search through your MigrationWiz account for user details

d. Click Quick Add if you would like to manually input a small number of users’ details into a form interface

Once you’re satisfied with the users you’ve created, you are ready to begin migration.
