SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a site called PROFILES that is one level down from the home site. This site contains about 40 subsites.

I want to move the site and its 40 subsites into another site called RESOURCING which sits at the same level as PROFILES.

I know I can save a site as a template and move it that way, but how can I get all 40 subsites included in that template?

It works with SharePoint Online. I can get to the site manager for the site collection > site I want to move but it seems that I can't move a sub-site to another site collection from companysite.sharepoint.com to companysite-my.sharepoint.com. I'm trying not to make someone, who created a project sub site under their mysite site, delete it and build it all over again. Blah. –  user18195 Jul 11 '13 at 21:24

My suggestion is that you utilize the site manager.

If you visit "http://yoursite/_layouts/sitemanager.aspx", you'll see a site manager, where you can do a move operation of all pages.

1) Select the parent site of the subsite you want to move in the left navigation pane.

2) Check the box next to the subsite you want to move in the right pane.

3) Click Actions drop-down and click Move.

4) Select Destination of the subsite selected in the next dialog.

Thanks. Managed to get this working. Had to turn on publishing at Site and Site Collection level first though. –  finisterre Jan 9 '13 at 14:47

With sharepoint online this does not seem to be possible. Using powershell even the export command is not avaialble. Using the Site Manager yields "File not found"
