Sometimes, there is a situation in which we need to move one subsite to another subsite. We can move one subsite to another subsite using Site Manager in sharePoint Online.Here I explained all the steps in detail.

Overview

Sometimes, there is a situation in which we need to move one subsite to another subsite.

We have received one requirement from one of our clients. Initially, they have created many subsites under one site collection. Now, they want to move those multiple subsites under another subsite.

Let’s take one scenario.

I have the following sites and subsites.

  • https://dshah.sharepoint.com/sites/it
  • https://dshah.sharepoint.com/sites/it/test1
  • https://dshah.sharepoint.com/sites/it/test2

Now, I want to move https://dshah.sharepoint.com/sites/it/test1 to https://dshah.sharepoint.com/sites/it/test2

Here, we will use site manager to move this file.

Now, let’s get started.

Step 1

Let’s observe the site first that we want to move.

The site has one document library and one custom list which will be moved along with the site.

Step 2

Open site manager using the following URL.

http://yoursite/_layouts/sitemanager.aspx

Here, in my case,

Your site = https://dshah.sharepoint.com/sites/it/test1/_layouts/15/sitemanager.aspx

It will open the Site Manager like this.

Step 3

In Site Manager, the left side shows all the available sites under root side.

 

The right side shows all the contents available in the selected site from the left pane.

Step 4

Now, let’s move test1(https://dshah.sharepoint.com/sites/it/test1) site to test2.

To do so, we will select the test1 site. It shows all content to the right side.

Step 5

Right-click on Test 1 and click on Move.

 

Step 6

It will open a pop-up to select a destination site.

 

Select Test2 and press OK.

 

Step 7

It will take some time to move the site from one subsite to another.

Step 8

Now, our subsite has been moved successfully.



Please refer the below screenshot for it.

Conclusion

This is how we can move a subsite from one subsite to another subsite.
