Office 365 email migration tool is updated

The built in tool for mail migration in Office 365 was recently updated. The most significant features added to the tool are:
  • Create and schedule multiple migration batches. You can create and queue up to 100 migration batches for a staged Exchange migration or an IMAP migration. Only one migration batch runs at a time, but you can queue up multiple batches, so when a migration batch is finished running, the next batch in the queue starts.
  • Restart a migration batch with failures. After the initial synchronization for a migration batch, where items are copied from on-premises mailboxes to the cloud mailboxes for each user in the migration batch, some mailboxes may fail synchronization. Now you can restart that migration batch and try to synchronize the failed mailboxes.
  • Get details about skipped items. For cutover Exchange migrations and staged Exchange migrations, the migration dashboard now displays information about the specific items that were skipped, including the reason why the items skipped and the location of the item in the user’s mailbox.
  • Open migration reports. You can open the migration statistics or migration error report for a migration batch right from the dashboard.
  • Edit a migration batch. If a migration batch for a staged Exchange migration or an IMAP migration is in the migration queue (but isn’t currently running), you can edit the migration batch by submitting a new CSV file, changing the connection settings, or changing the number of mailboxes to migrate simultaneously.
