A new button on the top level BC admin portal menu is a rare event, on this post I run through the steps to test & time the transfer process.
Step 1: Initiate the transfer from source tenancy
|Initiation of environment transfer
Step 2: Accept transfer on target tenancy
|Accept incoming transfer
Step 3: Wait a moment
|The source tenancy will show the queued operation log
In the time it too me to draft the above bit of this article the transfer had completed!

Step 4: Complete post transfer steps
All the old users remain visible but will have no access. In the past I have simply disabled these.

- I did need to create a brand new admin account and grant the Azure role "Dynamics 365 Admin" as the existing admin account on the tenancy didn't get granted the SUPER permission for some reason.
- Then I was able to run the Update Users action
You will need to check and add the security groups on the new tenancy, even if they are named the same, since BC tracked them by the GUID they will likely need to be removed and re-added from the BC Security Groups page. The page warns you with a notification bar.

Overall 5 stars to the Microsoft team that implement this new feature - its very easy to use and FAST.
In the past needing partner DAP/GDAP Global Admin access on both tenancies to request the transfer was a major issue!
