Migration of Meeting WorkSpace from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2013

Here is limitation by Microsoft….Meeting work spaces has been depreciated in SP 2013.
Sites created using the Meeting Workspace site templates that are upgraded to the SharePoint 2013 user experience will no longer operate in SharePoint 2013. In the event continued use is necessary while a migration plan is determined, sites using the Meeting Workspace site template should be operated in SharePoint 2010 mode. Client integration features when operating in SharePoint 2010 mode require a 2010 version of the Microsoft Office client. The Meeting Workspace site templates will be removed completely from the next major release of SharePoint and sites that were created by using the Meeting Workspace site templates will not be supported.
Solution:
You can migrate existing meeting workspaces in this way
  • 1.       Create a “site template” having list of “attendees”, “Meeting Docs”, “Agenda description”.
  • 2.       Your meeting space must have more than one meetings there that’s why you need to create one template (reusable every time)
  • 3.       Create new site every time under one site and start putting all docs and list to new site (New site will be same you previously set as template)
  • 4.       Using content deployment wizard to move the list and libraries…coz if u use this utility it will bring your meta data along docs and list items …..meta data mean…..name, date, author etc of docs.
