Starting September 1, 2021, classic Sites will not be viewable by others. Learn how to convert to new Sites today.

Analyze and manage your classic Sites

You can use Classic Sites Manager to help transition from classic Sites to new Sites.

Classic Sites Manager allows you to view all your classic Sites and information about each site. For example, you can see how many times each classic Site has been viewed over the last month.

You can convert a single site or multiple sites when you use Classic Sites Manager. Use filters to sort and analyze multiple sites.

  1. On a computer, go to Classic Sites Manager.
  2. Click on a site to open a side panel with more info about the site. It may take about 24 hours for a recently created classic site to appear on Classic Sites Manager.
  3. Apply one or more filters.
    • Title
    • Owner
    • Views in the past month
    • Views in the past year

Tips: If you initiate the conversion of multiple classic Sites to new Sites:

  • You’ll become the owner of the converted sites.
  • If someone is unable to create new Sites in your site settings, they also won’t be able to convert classic Sites.
  • If some sites can’t be converted, like if they’re in a different domain than you, they’ll be skipped and you’ll be notified by email.
  • Completion emails are only sent if a conversion fails for a size violation. If you want to check for other failures, you can filter for sites that say “Not started” once your bulk conversion is complete.
