Collaboration with Google Sites Just Got Easier

Several recent updates to Google Sites greatly improve their use and value for collaboration.

  • The ability to copy an entire site

  • More control over the search box to do things like search across multiple sites

  • The “recent announcement” gadget now allows you to control how much text is shown in the post summary. You can also configure the gadget to show a thumbnail of the first photo in the post

  • The Start Page is now available in all editions of Google
Of these features, the site copy and search improvements offer significant new value.

With the ability to copy sites, it is now possible to create a template site, for customer portals as an example, and copy the site for easy replication. Search gives you the ability to have users search over several related sites, providing easier access to information.
