UW-Madison Google Workspace - Export Data Using Google Takeout

Google Takeout allows you to export data from your UW-Madison Google Workspace account into a file that can be uploaded to a different Google account. This tool is a great option for individuals leaving UW-Madison.

Note: Google Takeout will only export data that you are the owner of. It will not export data that has been shared with you. View workaround.
