Migrate Classic Sites to New Sites

Migration tools to transition your classic sites will be released in 2018. Both classic and new Sites will continue to be supported during this time. Timelines and instructions regarding the gradual depreciation of classic Sites will be released in 2018. The specific depreciation date will be announced at least one year in advance.

Migration will fail for some large sites. You can try copying some site content to a new site and see if it will migrate, or maybe just wait until the migration process is improved.

Please note that if you try to migrate a site too often you can be blocked for a while from further attempts.

For a test I created a new Classic site that contains a text box with some text and a table. I then migrated it to a site in the New Format.

List pages are converted to a spreadsheet that is stored in Google Drive and inserted into your page.

NOTE: The spreadsheet is not automatically shared. You must access the spreadsheet and set its sharing to public or anyone with the link in order for it to be viewed by site visitors.

Attached files will be moved into a Google Drive folder.

NOTE: The folder is not automatically shared. You must access the folder and set its sharing to public or anyone with the link in order for it to be viewed by site visitors.
