How can you best migrate your teams from Trello to Planner?

Project managers have used project management software for years to plan and coordinate work with teams. Anytime the migration of project management software comes up, there is a significant deal of doubt. Even IT administrators are uncertain about switching from one project management tool to another, such as Trello to Planner. Organizations rely on Trello as a top-notch project management solution to keep tabs on various projects and effectively manage their teams.


Reasons for Cloud Migration

It is not unusual to look for an integrated single project management system when two businesses (organizations) merge or acquire one another. As a result, companies must transition between project management software. In addition, as firms grow, needs grow, and companies often require more sophisticated project management tools.

Trello and Microsoft Planner are similar. Your end-users will not find any issue coping with the changes, given that both tools look similar and possess almost the same functionalities. Adding to the convenience, Microsoft Planner is fully compatible with Office 365.


Cloud Migration Challenges

Migration from Trello is not straightforward since businesses have several challenges to overcome. The main obstacles in cloud migration include:

  • how to export Trello
  • address data loss, redundancy, transformation, and correction issues
  • account for possible human errors
  • only manual export and import available
  • lengthy debugging / data quality check
  • significant amount of time is required

The Trello Export feature can be used, but the difficulties will persist. Since there are no standard options for transferring Trello Boards, the question of how to migrate them frequently goes unanswered in such migrations.

As a project manager, you shouldn’t waste time on manual migration and operational challenges. Instead, to maximize productivity, you should find  a completely functional system with all the essential data in a relatively short amount of time. A few options are available when you migrate Trello to Microsoft Planner.
