Zoom Team Chat Migration app mapping

The Zoom Team Chat Migration app (Slack migration tool) is a self-service tool in the Zoom App Marketplace that provides end-to-end (E2E) migration of Slack chat history and data for users migrating from Slack to Zoom Team Chat. This tool can help users migrate Slack data and consolidate multiple Slack Workspaces into one Zoom account.

Note: All users in your Zoom account must be active with licensing ready for chat messaging history migration.
