Step 2-B: You Review the Data Mapping Document
Your responsibility: Read through the Data Mapping document carefully, and make sure you understand it.
Time frame: 1-2 weeks
Guidelines: Since the Data Mapping document will serve as our instruction manual for migrating your data, it is important that you understand exactly what it is telling us to do.

You will see this in the Data Mapping document:
Where we have marked the mapping with “###”, look at the original file. We will need to discuss this data, so it’s important that you know and understand exactly what the data at each marked point is meant to capture.
As you read through the mapping, you should also compile a list of any questions you have.
