    Awesome tool by the way!! Especially so that the user is notified upon the completion of imported items!

    An option to mass unnest labels after the account import after mail migration

    Contact notes from gmail imports don’t appear to Import into Gsuite accounts (and into gmail if one were to import there).

    Thanks!

    Hi Jeremy,

    Glad you like the tool!

    Transferred mail is nested to preserve the label structure of both accounts. If you would prefer to un-nest these labels, you can do so. When viewing your account at gmail.com, in the folder list on the lefthand side, hover over the label for a nested folder and click the arrow to the right of the label name. Select “Edit” from the dropdown menu. The popup window will allow you to un-nest the label and bring it up one level, to the root level. All of the emails will move as their label structure is changed.

    If Gmail says that the label already exists, you can work around this by applying the desired label and then removing the old one. First, open the label containing the messages you’d like to re-label. Then click the “Select: All” link. Click the “Select all [#] conversations in [label]” to ensure your changes apply to every message with this label. Select the label you wish to use from the label dropdown menu, and uncheck the label(s) you would like to remove.

    If Gmail will not let you un-nest the label because it’s a reserved system label, you can work around this by moving the emails to the desired system label and removing the old label. First, open the label containing the messages you’d like to re-label. Then click the “Select: All” link. Click the “Select all [#] conversations in [label]” to ensure your changes apply to every message with this label. Click the “Move to” folder icon and select the system label from the label dropdown menu. Then uncheck the label you would like to remove.

    Thanks,
    Andrea
