Due to functional differences between the Cloud and Server platforms, we are not able to deliver 1:1 feature parity between the environments. But we are committed to a cloud experience that offers the same end result as that found in server - effective control and management of documentation.

For this reason, it is not possible to use the migration tool to migrate your existing Comalatech workflows from Server.

You must install and license the Comala Document Management for Cloud app and manually create the Comalatech workflows in your Cloud instance.
