Error Reports

Allowing the Migration Manager application to send error reports means that if a problem is encountered, the application will automatically send details of this error to the Development team.  All transmissions are encrypted and all data is handled in accordance with our Privacy Policy. Not allowing error reporting can limit the amount of investigation we can provide when errors occur.

Progress Items

When you mark a Progress Item as Done/Complete, Migration Manager can automatically create a comment on that Progress item stating that the item is complete and mark the comment with the date/time and user's initials that completed the task.


Once all adjustments have been made, click Save & Exit.
