Migrating from Yahoo Groups to Groups.io #transfer #yahoo


billca42@...
 

Could someone point me to the instructions on migrating fro Yahoo Groups to Groups.io? I want to transfer all my existing posts and have a way to invite all my existing members. I was told that's possible, I just can't find the information on how to do that.

Our transfer just went through today!

 

If you lose the link just Google: groups.io yahoo groups transfer

 

That’s what I kept doing as I could never find the instructions either J

billca42,

Could someone point me to the instructions on migrating fro Yahoo Groups to Groups.io?

A link to the Easy Group Transfer instructions can be found at the bottom of every Groups.io page. Along with some other handy links:

I want to transfer all my existing posts and have a way to invite all my existing members.

You won't need to invite your existing Yahoo Group members, their addresses (and subscription settings) will be copied into the Groups.io group during the transfer.

I was told that's possible, I just can't find the information on how to do that. 

That and more. See also GMF's collection of Group Transfer notes.

I'm offline for five or six days, and come back to my email, discovering
half a dozen lists I subscribe to on YahooGroups, are now at Groups.io.

Did Mark manage to automate the entire process, or are more groups
migrating from YahooGroups now, than back in April?

jonathon,

Did Mark manage to automate the entire process, ...

The only change he's mentioned in the last several weeks has been that Yahoo Groups updated its CAPTCHA system; now he can solve it much more readily. But it isn't any more automated.
or are more groups migrating from YahooGroups now, than back in April?

I think it is likely luck of the draw that more of the groups you're in moved recently rather than at some other time. Or your groups may have clustered together due to commonality of membership / management. "Group think" in the common influences sense of the phrase.
