When migrating from CAS Desktop to CAS 360 the Client Success Team will be assisting you with the data transition.
Both CAS and CASLite + users can follow the below instructions below to run validation checks on CAS Desktop in preparation for Client Success to migrate your data to CAS 360.
Review Migration Requirements
Before you can use the Migration utility you need to ensure:
- You are running the latest version of CAS Desktop; To download the latest version of CAS, refer to your BGL Client Centre login and navigate to Your Support | Software Downloads
- You have access to the Migration utility.
- At least Windows 7 Service Pack 1 is required on the computer running the validation checks.
Access the Migration utility in CAS Desktop
Open CAS Desktop. From the CAS Explorer screen, select Introducing CAS 360.
The Introducing CAS 360 window will open. Select the Migrate icon to open the utility.
Link your CAS Desktop to your new CAS 360 Firm
A migration tool will display, prompting you for the Migration Settings.
1. Begin by entering in your CAS 360 User Name. To locate your Migration Token Key, click the link on the CAS 360 Migration Settings page.
(If you need to re-enter these details at a later stage, select the Hammer and Spanner icon in the Migration Utility tool).
2. You will be taken to the Migration Management screen in CAS 360. In order to generate a migration token key, click on the Generate button.
Once a Token Key has been generated, select the Copy button. This key will be valid for 30 days.
3. Return to the CAS 360 Migration Settings page. In the field assigned for the Migration Token Key, copy the generated token and right click your mouse to select Paste. Once the Token has been copied in, select Validate.
4. You will then be asked to confirm which CAS 360 firm you are migrating to. If the firm listed is correct then check the box and select Save; If the firm is not correct, then press Cancel. Ensure you have selected the right firm before regenerating the token and trying again.
Run a Validation Check
Select the companies you are migrating to CAS 360 and then select Run Validations.
Note: To select all companies, please select Run Validation without selecting any companies and the validation will process for all of your companies.
The Migration utility will run a check to confirm the correctness of the data being migrated.
What happens if you receive a validation error?
A validation error will appear if a particular piece of company information needs to be corrected. These errors can be:
- Automatically resolved by CAS Desktop on-screen;
- Manually resolved on-screen by you;
- Ignored and the migration will proceed (only for optional corrections).
Refer to Validation Checks for assistance on resolving the particular error(s) that you receive.
