  • Migrating to SharePoint Online (Office) requires using 3rd party tools, such as AvePont, SharePoint, FluentPro, etc.

    If migrating Project from Project Server 2010 to project online, then FluentPro may be the best choice.

    When migrating from any SharePoint/Project Server to Office 365 (SharePoint), then this is a time to analyze your current environment, clean up and determine which documents and projects should be migrated, design of the new environment, etc.  

    There are many pieces to the migration process, and would be a good idea, to bring in a consulting group for guidance.  The 3rd party tools provide this service as well, if their software is purchased.

    However, the first step, is business value of using SharePoint, make sure goals and objectives are defined and agreed upon, and then see best why to get there.

  • Thanks for replying.

    We checked this tool. As the license cost is high, we can not go ahead with it.

    We have option of CSOM/PSI/manual effort to do this(20K + records). Want to explore custom approach to migrate.

  • You can develop you own migartion tool - Fluent Pro are using the same API's that everyone else has access too. The dev effort will depend on the Project Server data you are trying to migrate to Project Online. The amount of time it will take you to develop and test some custom code / application, you might be able to migrate it manually in that time etc.

  • For the SharePoint Data - the free Microsoft tool does quite a lot now: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepointmigration/introducing-the-sharepoint-migration-tool - it doesn't migrate any project data though.
