Things to know & do before the move.

Things to know before the move...
Email access will be temporarily interrupted on migration day.
During a brief window on the morning of your migration day, you will not have access to your company emails.
IT support will be available in the office on migration day.

Files with invalid characters will be renamed.
Files and folders with the special characters à, {,}, #, &, % and ~ in their name will automatically be migrated to OneDrive, but they’ll be renamed using _ (underscore) in their place.
One username and password for both Office 365 and the NRT Gateway.
Once you’ve migrated to Office 365, you will begin using your Office 365 login credentials to access the NRT Gateway too. You’ll use your full company-issued email address and current password to log in to the Office 365 web portal, https://portal.office.com, as well as the NRT Gateway, https://nrtgateway.com.
Things to do before the move...
Prepare to re-create your email Rules and Filters.
The Rules & Filters you use to categorize emails will not migrate. Take note of them in advance. You’ll be able to re-create these rules and filters more easily in Outlook.
Recover deleted emails if you need them.
Your "trash can" will be migrated automatically; however, items that you’ve emptied from your trash can will not be migrated. Recover these items in advance.
Copy and paste your email signature.
Your email signatures will not be migrated. Prepare to re-create them by simply copying and pasting them into a Word document prior to the migration. If you forget to do it before the migration, you can copy them from a sent email. Either way, you can paste them into the Outlook email client.
Save files larger than 2GB to your desktop.
The documents stored on personal network file shares, your home drive, will automatically be migrated over to Office 365 and accessible using OneDrive, except for files larger than 2GB. You’ll want to identify and save them to your computer, then manually move them to OneDrive cloud storage once the migration takes place.
