Google TakeOut — Transfer Your Gmail and Drive to another Google Account

I just got the note below from Google today.  This feature would have been really handy a couple of years ago 🙂

Your domain now has access to a new tool which allows students to copy Drive and email files when they leave your domain.

Hi there,

We are writing to let you know that your domain now has access to Transfer your content, a new extension of Google Takeout. With this tool, your students can copy their Drive and email files from their G Suite for Education account to another Google account before they leave the domain. This will enable students to easily retain their email, essays, resumes, science projects and any other files stored on Google Drive if your school removes access to their old account. Learn more.


The technology team will be creating a screencast to show how to manage this process for both students and staff in the next week or two.  I’ll post them here.   I’m also planning to work with the high school team to create a protocol for all senior students to follow these steps so they can retain data from their accounts after graduation.  So, more to come.
