[Action Required] Take action on your inactive classic sites before Nov. 2020

Google logo
A new Sites experience launched to meet user needs.
Delete, archive, or convert your inactive classic sites before November 2020.

Dear Kuka,

In 2016, we launched an updated Google Sites (referred to in this email as "new Sites") designed to help you create websites without programming experience, optimize across mobile and desktop, and co-build with real-time collaboration. In 2017, we announced that we are replacing the previous Sites experience, referred to as "classic Sites", with our new Google Sites product. Since that announcement, we've invested in the new Sites experience by building top requested features.

We've identified that you own one or more inactive classic Sites that have been inactive for more than 24 months. You must take action before November 2020 if you want your inactive websites to continue to be available to visitors.

Additionally, starting November 1, 2020, site creation will no longer be available in classic Sites and will only be available in the new experience.

What do I need to do?

Start your migration today. We've created a new Classic Sites Manager to help you with this transition.

  • ⇨ Use the Classic Sites Manager to take the following actions for your inactive website(s):
    • trash icon Delete your website(s) if you no longer need them.
    • download icon Download your website(s) if you want to store an archived version of your website.
    • sites icon Convert your website(s) to the new experience if you want your websites to continue to be available to visitors.

  • If you take no action, inactive website(s) will no longer be available in Google Sites and will automatically be downloaded as an archive and saved to your Google Drive starting November 2020.

SAIMM: Johannesburg Branch Event, 18 August 2020

Time: 16:00 – 18:00

"Training, mentoring and knowledge transfer, futureproofing our industry"
A panel discussion

Date: 18 August 2020
16:00 to 18:00

Event Brief:
The Johannesburg Branch of the SAIMM has, for over 5 years, devoted the August meeting to the Annual Student Debate, which has, over the years showcased some of the talent which is up and coming in our local universities. Unfortunately, due to the current global situation, physical meetings are not possible, and the nature of the Student's Debate does not lend itself to virtual communication mechanisms.

However, to maintain the August student focus, the Johannesburg Branch has decided to host a virtual panel discussion entitled "Training, mentoring and knowledge transfer, futureproofing our industry".
The intention is to engage a number of stakeholders in the training and development of the leaders of our industry in the future, and discuss interactively what we are doing now, is it enough, what should we be doing to safeguard the future of our industry and its skills-base.
The plan is to include representatives of the various stakeholder groups in the discussion, including; the institutions (both as recipients of, and providers of the fundamental skills), industry (as end-users of the skills and custodians of the future), and the private sector (as facilitators of post-graduate knowledge transfer). Each panelist will offer a few thoughts relevant to the topic and then the discussion will be opened to questions from the audience, which we hope will include thoughts from all sectors.
The Johannesburg Branch thanks the following sponsors:

Metskill (Pty) Ltd
Tshipi é Ntle Manganese Mining (Pty) Ltd
University of Johannesburg
