To migrate Office365 Sharepoint to Box Business / Enterprise accounts, you need to create one-way sync pairs like this:
Office365 Sharepoint (firstname.lastname@example.org) -> Box Business (email@example.com)/files Office365 Sharepoint (firstname.lastname@example.org) -> Box Business (email@example.com)/files ...
The above will create a one-way sync of Office365 Sharepoint with Box. The data will be migrated, and it will also be kept in sync—allowing you seamless transition.
Here are step-by-step instructions for how to setup data migration sync pairs.
