Before Migrating to Google Apps for Education

GAFE (Resources)


  • Sign-in Required
  • For Faculty, Staff

To prepare for the data migration, there are steps you need to take. Your experience with Google will improve if the data that is migrated into Google Apps is clean. Please:

Email – 1) Clear out your Drafts folder. 2) Perform any desired mailbox hygiene (file messages into folders on the server, delete unwanted messages and folders, etc.). 3) Identify and remove any export-controlled data from Exchange email accounts. U.S. export laws control the transmittal of export controlled technical information to non-U.S. persons and locations (http://www.umresearch.umd.edu/Export/exportlaws.html). If you believe you have data like this, please contact us atgoinggoogle@umd.edu.

Calendar – Act on all invitations by either accepting or declining them if you want them to migrate over to your Google Calendar.
