NOTE: For large projects, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org before migrating any projects to your SaaS instance. This is to ensure that no other users are migrating at the same time. (This is only temporary)
Below are the steps to migrate projects from your local Mingle instance to a Mingle SaaS instance.
- Login as a Mingle Administrator user to perform the activity
- Perform Export on your local Mingle instance
Step 1: Click on project and then on ‘Project Admin’
Step 2: Select ‘Export Project’ link and click on ‘CONTINUE TO EXPORT’
Your project export will be downloaded to your local system in *.mingle format
Note: Before exporting the project, ensure that all users have email ids associated with their profile. This will be required as users will need to reset their password on Mingle SaaS instance by clicking on ‘Forgotten your password?’ link.
