Meeting Link Migration for Teams in Cross Tenant
Note: both, first user Mailbox/Calendar and Teams must be migrated
A 3rd party
tool is required to accomplish a meeting link migration.
With Exchange Mailbox
migration, all items, including calendar item will be migrated as they are. Calendar
item with a link to a Microsoft Team meeting link back to the original Team
meeting in the source tenant. The URL is retained.
A Teams Channel meeting is
not recreated in the target tenant. Those meetings must be rescheduled manually
by the channel owner.
How it works (e.g.
Quest): The meeting link
migration task will create a new Team meeting with the original meeting details
in the target tenant. It will set the target user as the organizer. The
original meeting migrated to the target will be canceled. The cancellation will
be automatically sent out to the organizer and recipients.
migrating Teams meetings and their respective link, be aware of the limitations
from the tools chosen. Additionally, attendees outside your organization also
receive cancelations and re-invites. This results in questions/ confusions, if
those attendees aren’t informed before the migration occurs.
attendee list is not updated to match the target domain.
new meeting is only created if the migrating user is the
organizer of that particular Team meeting.
3rd party tools
recreate present and future meetings, both one-time and recurring meetings.
Meetings that happened in the past are migrated with Calendar migration.
recreated on target could result in meeting time zone updates to UTC. This is
one of the limitations of the Microsoft Graph API.
subsequent runs of the Meeting Link Migration Task will skip the meetings which
were previously processed.
like a flag and categories are not supported with this migration.
The cancellation email will
be sent to the mailboxes of target attendees. If mail forwarding from the
target to the source is not configured for them, the attendees in the source
tenant will not receive the cancellation email. As a result, they will observe
both the original meeting, which was cancelled, and the new one, created by the
On Demand service.
migration with the Migrate Calendar option selected, must be
completed before starting this task.
