New Features added to Google Sites!

The New Google Sites is so slick and easy to use, but some features have been missing.  This tech tip will discuss two new features of the new Google Sites.

Feature #1 – Links in Page Navigation

You can now add links to web pages, photo galleries, drive files, etc and have it show in the page navigation. See picture below – Daily School Schedule looks like a page, but it goes to a Google Doc, and District Calendar looks like a page, but it goes to a calendar page on the District website. read more

Copy Comments and Suggestions in Google Docs, Sheets and Slides

I love collaborating with my team (and educators all over NW Ohio!) with Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. One of my biggest frustrations is that the comments and suggestions don’t transfer when you make a copy. This means you lose your history of all your collaboration when you duplicate a document, spreadsheet, or presentation.. Now Google is making it possible to copy comments and suggestions any time you make a copy of a Docs, Sheets, or Slides file.

To copy your comments and suggestions, simply select “Make a copy” from the File menu as your normally do. Now you’ll see an option for “Copy comments and suggestions” or “Copy comments.” read more

The NEW Google Sites

As some of you might have heard, Google recently released a new version of Google Sites. It is so slick!  You have the Edit panel that allows you to put all of your items in your site.  Then, you simply drag and drop the items to where you want them on your page.


To create new pages, click on the Pages tab of the edit panel and create your new page. Then, just drag it and drop it wherever you want it in your navigation.


Select a theme to add some color and choose an image for your header background. Google will also automatically adjust your background image and text for readability.
