Migrate from Google Drive folders to an AODocs library

2. Apply the security settings to your library.

Important: This step is extremely important. You must perform it before launching any import.

3. Review, clean and structure the folder organization in Google Drive you want to migrate before the import. 

Note: If you need guidance to map your folder structure in Google Drive, the AODocs service team and the AODocs service partner would be happy to help you. You can contact your AODocs sales representative or send an email to sales@aodocs.com.

4. As an AODocs super administrator, import your cleaned folder structure from Drive to AODocs.

5. Monitor your migration progress.

6. When the import is finished, you can import another set of folders.

7. At the end of your migration, if you want to apply the library permissions to all folders and documents, you can perform a check ownership at the library level. If you don't perform the check ownership, the permissions will remain the same as set before the import.

Additional recommendations:
– We recommend waiting for an import to be finished before launching a new one. If you launch too many migrations at the same time, you may slow down your migration process.
– We recommend disabling the Google Drive sync tool when you perform these migrations.
– Don't forget to ask your users to install the AODocs Smartbar. You can also install it for them.
