Pause and Cancel during the running action: - Operate as intended. Force Refresh: - When set in the options, refreshes the Source and Target Termstores prior to migration. Synchronizing dependency terms and Orphaned terms on Source: - During synchronization, Orphaned Terms are skipped. - This will resolve any issues that related to: "AddTerm Exception : This operation is invalid in the Orphaned Terms term set. The operation failed.” that may occur if attempting to migrate from a source termstore that has orphaned terms and those terms are being reused. - Please Note: Even though the error described will not occur during dependency term synchronization, a similar error may still occur whilst the term is attempted to be migrated later on. - The only way to resolve this is to ensure there are no Orphaned Terms on the source, prior to migration. (Feature)

  • Taxonomy Migration Update III - Migration License Usage & Term Store DefaultLanguage utilized. (ITM-08322): Provides license usage logging of the following: - Term groups - Term Sets (Added and updated term set usage cost in bytes) - Terms (Added and updated term usage cost in bytes) Adding this feature has also increased the speed of migration when migrating the same termstore across again.

  • Copying Tasks List with modified type for "% completed" column - Number type changed to Choice type (ITM-08378): The solution is to convert field type to Choice in the list. In case when the field type in target list is not "Choice" and there are values in the field that are not specified as "Choices" for the field in source list user may want to set "Allow Fill-In" option for that column on the source list to true before copying. For e.g.: column XYZ in source list is of type Choice and the choices this column are: Enter Choice #1 Enter Choice #2 Enter Choice #3 Enter Choice #4 but in target list user has column XYZ of the type Text and items have values different than choices in source list (See attachment for details) (BugFix)
