How to migrate Planner from one tenant to another?

Migration of Microsoft Planner to the new tenant is possible only with third-party commercial tools that allow such operation.  By design, you will not be able to migrate your existing data in Microsoft Planner from your tenant – your Office 365 environment to a new tenant – separated Microsoft 365 environment.

In case of Planner migration between tenants, you will need to plan an additional budget to buy a Planner migration tool that will help you to manage the migration process.

Planner migration tools available on the market:

  • Sharegate Desktop – recommended

Remember because you will use a third-party solution for the migration test it first on the Sandbox environment.
