When you migrate your Zoho account from one datacenter to another (for example, from the US to EU), all of your Zoho services including Docs, will be migrated. Before you migrate your Zoho account, you should know the limitations in each service.

Below, you can learn the migration process, understand what's migrated, what's not migrated, and other essential details regarding Zoho Docs.

Migration process

  • The Super Admin or an Admin of the Docs account must send an email to support@zohodocs.com with the preferred datacenter details.
  • Once we have the requirements, we will ask you for your preferred date for migration.
  • Our migration team will initiate your migration on the preferred date.
  • Once all your data is migrated, we will ask you to check and confirm that everything has been migrated successfully.
  • ‚ÄčIf there are any failures in the migration, you can report to us, and we will try to migrate them again.

Note:

  • The Super Admin or an Admin who initiates the migration will be our point of contact for all migration-related activities and issues.
  • During migration, any changes made in the source datacenter (for example, the US) will not be migrated to the destination datacenter (for example, Europe).
  • To migrate data, a new mirror account will be created temporarily in the destination datacenter. Once all the data is migrated, accounts will be swapped.
