Drawback of This Office 365 to G Suite Migration Process

2: Need Good Knowledge: As you saw above, if you want to migrate Office 365 database into Google Workspace you should have working experience with Google Workspace, and Office 365.

3: Time Consuming: This is a very time taking method. If you want to upload all Office 365 emails/contacts/calendars in Google Workspace you must repeat the above-given process again and again.

4: Limited Time Data Migration: The free manual process enables users to migrate a maximum of one year of emails/contacts/calendars.

At the End: So, this is the complete information to migrate Office 365 to Google Workspace. I believe using the above migration process you can easily upload Microsoft 365 to G Suite. If you want to shift limited data from Office 365 to Google Workspace, the above method can be much helpful for you. But for bulk data/email migration, it takes a lot of your time and maybe chances of data loss. Therefore, most professionals recommend using any trusted third-party application to migrate Microsoft 365 to Google Workspace.
