Transfer Google documents


#1

A timely tech note.

Google offers two mechanisms for students and staff to transfer documents and email from one account to another.

https://takeout.google.com/transfer
and
https://takeout.google.com

The first allows a student or staff to copy all their emails and Drive documents from a District account to a personal Gmail account.

The second allows a student or staff to download a copy of all their emails and Drive documents from a District account to a file.

The original documents stay in the district account, but a copy is created. The first process in particular is a great way for students or staff that are leaving to retain access to their files.

This is a user friendly description of the process: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6386856

Thank you for sharing @jsjoberg. This is beneficial for this time of year when students are graduating and staff may be pursuing new jobs elsewhere.

I’d be interested to know how much this is used, if at all. Are there analytics that can be pulled to see this?
