Over the past several years, Bamboo has been busy investing in the development of new products to support SharePoint Online (SPO). These products mimic the functionality, as best we can, of our award-winning on-premises products and, in many cases, outperform our legacy products with new features and functions. Calendar Plus, Chart Plus, Column Level Security, and others are now used in hundreds of SharePoint Online tenants.
With the development of these new products on SharePoint Online, we now have two sets of product offerings, the on-premise products (for SP 2013, 2016, 2019, and 2022) and the SPO products. Product migrations will differ if you’re moving from on-premises to on-premises or if you’re moving from on-premises to SharePoint Online.
On-Premises to On-Premises Migrations
On-premises customers with active Bamboo support receive free upgrades to newer on-premises versions, for example, SP2010 to SP 2016 or even SP2019 to SP2022. Migrating from on-prem to on-prem migration best practices can be found here: Product Migration Made Easy | Bamboo Solutions.
On-Premises to SharePoint Online Migrations
For our customers on active Bamboo support looking to migrate from on-prem to SharePoint Online, we offer a discounted upgrade license for the equivalent Bamboo SharePoint Online products. Contact us early in your migration planning so we can assist with your license needs as you prepare to move to SharePoint Online.
Please note that these new SharePoint Online products don’t accept existing configurations from the on-premises products. These products are completely new in order to be compatible with the modern architecture and the front-end code requirements of SPO. The product settings will need to be reconfigured once the SPO products are installed in your new SharePoint Online tenant.
Also, note some products are no longer needed in SharePoint Online and won’t have an equivalent in our SPO catalog. However, we have new products that fill new gaps in SharePoint Online that you may want to consider for your new tenant. This includes Employee Directory Plus, Tabify, and Carousel.
Thank you for your continued support, and we know your users will love the familiar Bamboo experience now in SharePoint Online. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
