Transfer Google documents

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.

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