Have you ever thought of having an option to schedule the process of SharePoint migration and running it at a later point of time? That would be really helpful if the migrations are all run automatically whenever you need without having any manual interference. Let’s help you understand this with some examples.

Some Scenarios Why Auto SharePoint Migration Scheduling is Better?

Assume that you have already assigned the task of SharePoint development migration data from your same source to the same destination daily in order to get the destination synched with the source. This can be easily done by configuring the options without any issues. But at times while doing the same work manually, there are chances you misconfigure some options which might result in corrupting the data. There are also chances that you might forget to do the migration at times.

Here, let’s consider one more scenario where your business has assigned a job to the technical person to move the data from On Premise to SharePoint Online on the specific date, before the specific time as the on premise servers will be installed after. But by chance if you get a reminder via your personal app, but still cannot do the migration simply because you are not in front of the machine or due to some other work, the result will not only affect your job, but the organization will also lose crucial data.

So scheduling your SharePoint migration beforehand would be much easier for you and relaxing at the same time. To do this job automatically there are some tools that can meet your requirements perfectly. Not only in the above scenarios, but in most of your scheduling requirements can be achieved by using a scheduling feature in the SharePoint migrator tool.
