Cloudiway migration is the only solution on the market capable of migrating your Google Sites to SharePoint Online.
This article explains how it works.

Google Site to SharePoint Online migration

What is migrated:

  • Horizontal navigation bar;
  • Vertical navigation bar;
  • Logo;
  • Web page;
    A web page is the simplest kind of page; you can write content, embed gadgets, and arrange it however you like. The web page has standard formatting controls like bold, italic, underline, bullets, and more. You can attach documents from your hard drive to the bottom of the page, and you can let other site collaborators comment on your pages. Google Sites periodically saves versions of your page while you edit, so it’s easy to go back to earlier versions of the page to make comparisons or undo changes.
  • Announcements;
    Much like a blog, announcement pages display posts you make to the page in chronological order, starting with the most recent. For example, an announcement page would be great for keeping a record of weekly meeting notes, while providing quick access to the most recent meeting info.
  • File cabinet;
    File cabinet pages let you store and organize files from your computer’s hard drive, making it an easy way to share files with other users of your site. Anyone subscribed to the page will be notified when files are added, changed, or removed.
  • List page;
    List pages let you make and organize lists of information. Items on the list are easy to add, edit, and remove, and viewers of the list can sort it by any column. Like the file cabinet page, subscribers are notified when items are added, changed, or removed.
  • Google Gadgets;
    To easily embed rich media, retrieve feeds, or perform simple tasks like managing a to-do list, you can insert gadgets into your Google site.
  • Viewers of documents;
    Documents can be displayed inline.
