This article is for administrators of the classic Google Sites (no “Publish” button at the top right). Get help for administrators of the new Google Sites.

If you have the legacy free edition of Google Apps, upgrade to G Suite to get this feature. 

This feature is also not available in the G Suite for Government edition.


When a user saves a page as a template, they create a copy of their page that others can use to create new custom pages. The template includes a copy of the page design, structure, and content that others can revise however they want.

With templates, people in your organization can share good designs, build sites more quickly, and promote a common look for sites on your corporate or school intranet.

  • A corporate manager might create a Product Rollout template for planning product launches.
  • A teacher might share a template for posting course information.
  • A school group could publish its Events template.

Templates created using classic Sites appear in your organization's private gallery and are available to everyone in your domain.
