  3. Enter the File name you want for the copied site in Google Drive, the Folder you want the copied Google Site to appear in and choose if you want to Share with the same editors

  • Some sites are too large to copy (see demo video)
  • Only editors and the owner can copy the site
  • At the moment you cannot prevent editors from copying a site


It will take 15 days for full rollout of the feature to rapid release G Suite Domains (released on 29 May 2018) and scheduled release will start the 15-day roll-out two weeks later (12 June 2018).
