GPO - Automatically import another browser's data and settings at first run - Not working

Occasional Visitor

Hello,

 

We are currently making the switch from IE to Edge in our Corporate environment.

 

After setting up policies, we rolled out Edge to a test-group, however, the favorites weren't automatically imported for any of them.

I double-cecked if i have set up the policy correctly, and I have.

 

Automatically import another browser's data and settings at first run is set to import all supported datatypes and settings from Internet explorer.

 

We are using the Build 91.0.864.59. I have found that there was a bug in an older version, but that should be fixed.

 

Any ideas?

@Kvooo Hi!  Yes, there was an issue with the AutoImportAtFirstRun Policy that was fixed last year.  I don't know of any new issues but I will reach out to the team and follow up with any insights from them.  

 

In the meantime, another option is reaching out to MS Edge Support (https://microsoftedgesupport.microsoft.com/hc/en-us) they would be able to help investigate your specific case.  

 

And finally we have our FastTrack team (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/fasttrack/microsoft-365/microsoft-edge) available to help with deploying MS Edge in your organization.  Thanks!
