Migrate classic Sites to new Sites

You can use the Classic Sites Manager to help you and your users manage the transition from classic Sites to new Sites.

The Classic Sites Manager allows you, the administrator, to have a view of all of the classic Google Sites that exist in your organization and information about each site. For example, you can see how many times each classic Site has been viewed over the last month.

The information in the Classic Sites Manager can help you plan your overall migration. You can easily identify sites to delete and sites you might want to migrate. Additional functionality will be added to the Classic Sites Manager in the coming months. Learn more at Transition from classic Sites to new Sites.

Note: It may take up to two hours for changes in sites to reflect in Classic Sites Manager. Administrators can see all of the classic Sites in their organization, but individual users will only see the classic Sites that they own in the Classic Sites Manager.

Use the Classic Sites Manager

  1. Go to https://sites.google.com/classicsitesmanager.

  2. Click on a site and a side panel will appear, which gives you more information about the site, including a link to the conversion tool to convert the site to new Sites.

  3. Filter sites based on the following criteria:
    • Title
    • Owner
    • Views in the past month
    • Last viewed date
    • Last edited date 
    • Creation date
    • Status (active, deleted, or migrated)

    You can also sort sites alphabetically, by last edited date, and views in the past 30 days by clicking the headers Name, Last edited, and Views past 30 days.

  4. With this information, you can decide to delete old sites, which haven’t been used for quite some time, or contact the owners of those sites for more information.

Export to Sheets

You can export data from the Classic Sites Manager to a Google Sheet by clicking in the bottom left corner Export to Google Sheets, and you will see a Sheet in Drive titled Your classic Google Sites export for <your domain> on <date>.
