Migrate IE favourites from windows server 2008 to Edge on windows server 2016

There is a windows server 2008 with users who can configure their favourites in IE. A migration to windows server 2016 is imminent and I'd like to migrate these favourites for each user. I've tried finding googling for GPOs who can do that but ended up with nothing. Before I ask every user to somehow save their favourites and import them into their new browser, is there an automated process to do this?
