SharePoint My Links Migration from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint Online.

My company is migrating from SharePoint 2010 and many of our users have extensive "My Links".  Since the "My Links" functionality is not in SharePoint Online, how do we provide this?  

Is there a third party web part?
Is there a way to do this with custom code/extensions/pages, etc?  

I know that in SharePoint 2010 I can go to "http://siteurl/_layouts/MyQuickLinks.aspx" to see my lists, but no easy way to download all of the data and especially for all the users.  

Ideally we find a way to export each user's links and provide them in a similar link in SharePoint Online.  
At a minimum, need to capture everyone's links and make them available in some format in SharePoint Online once we turn off SharePoint 2010.  

Any ideas/Suggestions?

Anyone?  Almost a month now and no "experts" to help.

Sorry for the delay. Please try the instructions on MySite migration here:


it is the only way I know of at this time. Someone had a tool at one point, but I have to look through my old files. I'll come back if I can find it.

How are you migrating to SharePoint online? 

Newer SharePoint has a 'follow' feature that is similar to my links. I don't know if that can be used to migrate your My Links, but I will see what I can find.

Experts Exchange is like having an extremely knowledgeable team sitting and waiting for your call. Couldn't do my job half as well as I do without it!

Thank you for your feedback, will look into these shortly.  

Walter, we have a tool called ShareGate.  At this point I do not have access to this app, but perhaps there is a path there. Did a quick google search and there seems to be some hits there.  Might send a note to their support and ask directly if I cannot find anything online.
