How to perform Trello migration to Microsoft Planner in 4 simple steps

Trello to Microsoft Planner

Microsoft Planner, a high-level planning app, is part of Office 365. Its interface uses Kanban board-style task cards and has several valuable features, including collaborating, displaying data visually, and adding notes, among many others. Trello is a popular Microsoft Planner alternative used by companies to track and manage their projects, resources, and tasks.


Trello Migration Complexities

There is a lot of overlap between Trello and Microsoft Planner. These tools appear and perform pretty similarly. However, some companies switch from Trello to Microsoft Planner.

While data migration may seem easy, there are often challenges along the way, such as with a change in storage, application, or database. These difficulties will only increase if the necessary data migration method is not followed.

Some of the significant cloud migration challenges include:


  • Data redundancy & duplication
  • Source & Target system fields mapping and data transformation
  • Data loss risks
  • Long debugging
  • Much manual work
  • Complicated process

Although Trello provides export functionality, it doesn’t solve the abovementioned challenges. To migrate Trello Boards without these issues, you need an automated solution.

Migrate Trello to Microsoft Planner

Even though Project Migrator makes migration very simple, you still need to complete the following steps for successful data transfer between project management platforms.


Step 1: Establishment of source and target system connection 

First, you must connect the Trello environment (which serves as the source) and the Microsoft Planner environment (which serves as the target). This connection creates a link between both systems, allowing both systems to exchange the required information at different stages of the migration.

Step 2: Source system selection

In such migrations, organizations can take control over data. Some organizations want to migrate all data, while others want to proceed with specific projects, tasks, etc. Project Migrator allows you to select what data needs to be relocated.

Step 3: Object mapping

Project Migrator provides a user-friendly data mapping interface at this stage. It allows you to inspect and edit the data transferred from Trello to Microsoft Planner. You can choose what information from the source goes to which fields in the target system.

Step 4: Commencement of the migration procedure

 Cloud data migration between project management platforms makes FluentPro Project Migrator much easier. This robust solution reduces data loss risks and human errors by providing process automation.
