Act Now! Google Apps For Teams Is Shutting Down


Happy Wednesday!

Please note that if you have a Google Apps Site created in Google Apps for teams your account will be officially shutting down on September 4, 2012.

Here is a link to the official google apps administration team help page filled with all the information and tutorials of what you need to do

Don't panic ...

If you're an admin of a Google Apps Teams account you will already be receiving email instructions from google on what to do. Here is how to deal with your Google Site:

1.Your Google Apps for Teams account will become a personal Google Account.If your username is not available it will automatically default to user%domain.com@te.gtempaccount.com.
You will still be able to log in using the Google sign-in process such as http://www.google.com/docs and http://www.google.com/sites instead of the /a/domain.com URLs you were using originally.

2.Copy Your Google Apps For Teams Site - follow this tutorial on how to do so

3.Once the changes have taken place you must change your username by upgrading to Gmail or change your primary address to a non-gmail address.

If you need a hand feel free to contact me through my profile or my help site.

  1. Hi Becky. Ever since we copied our site, our publishers are receiving "Upload server error, please try again later." when trying to add a file to a page on the new site. All the other functions appear to work fine...just can't add files. Any thoughts? I also sent you an email regarding this. Thanks.
