Move device configuration profile from device to user?

Actually I have assigned a device configuration policy for my edge settings to a device group. Now I would like to assign that policy to a user group instead to devices.
So my first idea is to add the user group assignment to the same policy and then to wait until more or less all users have received that policy too. After that I would remove the device assignment and everything is done.....hopefully.
I‘m not quite sure if it is a good idea to assign the same policy to a device and a user at the same time?
Eventually someone already did a scenario like that and can point me to problems that can come up?
Thank you in advance!

@PuDerBaer Thanks for posting in our Q&A.

For this issue, in general, you can first remove the device group and then add the user group.

But it is not sure that every device configuration profile will no longer apply to the device group. In our official article, for windows devices, when remove devices from a group that's assigned the profile, some CSPs remove the setting, and some CSPs keep the setting, also called tattooing. So, it is suggested to try to test specific settings to confirm if it is available.

Thank you fpr your answer!
When I remove a device from the policy all of the setting are gone. So no problem with tatooing.
When I remove the assigment to the devices first I´m not sure if the new user assignemnt will arrive fast to enough to not let the users device unconfigured.
Because of that I would like to overlap the device and user assignment for a while. But as @PaD-7009 mentioned there should be no negative impact because it is exactly the same policy.....

Thank you for your help :-)
