Site Collection Checklist

The Division of IT is in the process of migrating SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint Online. There are four parts to the migration: Pre-migration, Testing, Migration, and Post-migration.

Pre-migration of Site Collection

For each site collection, administrators will do the following:

  • Determine the fate of stale subsites and delete or archive content. (IMPORTANT: Consult BPM-1001 Records Retention Guide before deleting content.)
  • Review permissions, making sure appropriate team members have the appropriate access level.
  • Confirm link URLs use the appropriate relative or absolute path (If the site collection’s URL is ever changed, will this URL work?)
  • Document which lists/libraries have customized workflows, pages, or web parts.
  • Remove stale gallery custom site templates
  • Remove stale gallery custom web parts
  • Determine if the site collection has DCL 4 data and/or has it been customized using SharePoint Designer or other development tools. If the answer is yes to either question, you will need a detailed consultation.
  • Right before testing, cease all design changes to entire site collection until after migration and check in all pages, documents, and items.
