This article describes how to manage the number of concurrent migration batches in Microsoft Exchange Online in Microsoft Office 365.


Administrators can set the number of concurrent migration batches for new and existing migration batches by using the Exchange Admin Center (EAC) or Exchange Online PowerShell.

  2. Sign in to the Office 365 portal (, click Admin, and then click Exchange to open the EAC (if it's not already open).
  3. In the left navigation pane, click Recipients, and then click Migration.
  4. Click the migration batch that you want to change.
