Call2Teams - Partners
Call2Teams accounts are structured in an hierarchical fashion which can result in several account or sub-account layers. Client accounts or Internal-Use accounts are usually sub-level accounts of a Native Partner Base Account. In some cases a 'Source Account' maybe a 'Proof of Concept' or 'Trial' Account. If a client or the users of a 'Source' account need to be moved between Partners or other Sub Accounts, there are a few ways this can be achieved.
Migrating Users and Services
This method expects the MS 365 tenant to remain the same. This is suitable for accounts where the services and users wish to be moved to a brand new sub-level account under any Native Partner.
If the Partner or Reseller differ from the Source Partner or Reseller, we will need written permission from both the source and the new provider.
You will need to raise a Service Desk case with us and include this permission.
You should create the new Sub-Level Client Account under its new target Base account but do NOT create any Users or Services or Administrators at this stage. You MUST, however, ensure that sufficient licences of the types required, are added to the account. We will check these at least match the existing source account and advise any discrepancies.
We will perform the Migration and advise when completed. All Users, Services and Administrators will now have been migrated away from the old Source account and will appear in the newly created target client account.
The old source account will expire after a 14-day cooling off period. You may amend Administrators on the new Sub/Client account as you wish.
This method expects the MS 365 tenant to remain the same. This is suitable for accounts where the services and users wish to be moved to a brand new sub-level account under the same Native Partner. Example: You have structured your accounts into global regions and have a client under the UK who should be under a USA account.
You will need to raise a Service Desk case with us.
You need to create a new Sub-Level Client Account at the correct location in your Account hierarchy. You will then need to assign the correct number of each type of licence(Mirroring those on the account being moved). We will perform the Re-Parenting for you and advise when completed. All Users, Services and Administrators will now have been migrated away from the old Source account and will appear under the correct account level as advised. Finally, you can then remove the licences etc from the original account.
Can I Move Users/Accounts Myself?
This may be preferable in some cases, especially if there is a change in the MS Tenant. The simple rule is to create the new client/sub account first and begin to add the services etc as you would for any new client. When you are ready, you should remove the users, licenses and services from the old account and Sync the new one.
Please see Section 5 of the Teams Admin Setup Guide in the Documents section of your Teams Service screen for guidance on manual configuration. This covers details on the domains that may need to be removed/amended in the Microsoft Admin portal
Residual Calling Policies
Any residual policies in the Microsoft Admin portal that might cause conflict following a migration or re-parenting, may need to be removed before a new Sync can be performed. You can simply remove anything that contains call2teams.com.
Call2Teams sets up 2 domains for a Microsoft Tenant. If, following any of the above processes, you find there are more than 2 or any conflict exists, it is safe to remove these and perform a fresh Sync.
