Migration tools for large imports

If you have many users or currently use Microsoft® Exchange, you can use one tool or a combination of tools to migrate email, contacts, and calendars to your new G Suite account. The tools you use depend on where you're moving data from and what type of data you want to move.

Need simpler options? If you're an individual user or have fewer than 20 users in your organization, see simple import options.

What do you want to migrate?

Migrate email

We recommend using the data migration service to migrate email. The data migration service lets you easily migrate your users' mail to G Suite in the Google Admin console without installing a client. Setup is simple, and most mail server connections can be made automatically.

Need to import other types of data?

Google Drive—You can use an API to migrate data to Drive in a new G Suite account. Or, users can move their own data. For details, see Transfer data between G Suite accounts.  

Directory data—Use Google Cloud Directory Sync (GCDS) to synchronize the data in your G Suite domain with your Microsoft® Active Directory® or LDAP server. Your Google users, groups, mailing lists, and shared contacts are synchronized to match the information in your LDAP server. For details, see About GCDS.

Third-party tools—There are third-party tools in the G Suite Marketplace that can help you migrate your data. You can search by topic and product name. Learn more about how to Install Marketplace apps.
