Google Sites

Google Sites is an easy way to create internal websites for teams, projects, and resources.

Sites features integrations with G Suite (Google Apps), allowing easy schedule embeds from Google Calendar, files from Google Drive, or locations from Google Maps.

Multiple people can collaborate on a Site in real-time, just like with Google Docs. Manage site permissions to restrict viewership to people with or accounts, or specific individuals or groups.

Content on the screen is arranged through drag-and-drop functionality, so no web experience is necessary.
