What a Migration Specialist Should Know

about 

Google Drive

Google Drive is a:

Hybrid Application


This means Google Drive typically runs as a desktop app on employees' PCs that store data in cloud-based databases and APIs that are run by Google Drive.

Universal Migrator extracts data from Google Drive via:

File-Share Connections

Other Notes:

Contact Name Assist


In Google Drive, a contact only has a "Full Name" field and nothing absolutely identifies it as being a person or a company. Universal Migrator will attempt to determine whether a name looks like a person's name or a company name. The Migration Specialist and the Firm Administrator should review this and make any tweaks if necessary.

The following credentials are required:

Admin Google Drive Credentials


The Migration Specialist will need an Administrator username and password into Google Drive in order to extract your data.

The computer used to migrate from Google Drive:

Can be located Anywhere


Because data is extracted from the Google Drive database, the migration can be run from anywhere with access to a backup of the database.

The following people are required for a migration from Google Drive:

Migration Specialist


The Migration Specialist is the person who will be performing this migration. They may be a member of Universal Migrator's own Internal Migration Team or any IT professional who has completed the Universal Consultant training program.

Firm Administrator


The Firm Administrator is a member of the law firm who can serve as a dedicated point of contact, make decisions, and answer any questions the Migration Consultant may have. This person should be readily available and is typically the managing partner or office manager of the firm.

In order to migrate from Google Drive:

The Firm Administrator must complete a User Mapping spreadsheet.
