How to Move SharePoint Site to Another Site: 2 Simple Ways
The traditional methods of moving content between SharePoint sites are too complicated. Users need to pay much attention to structures, permissions, and other before the migration. However, this article will give you two simple methods to transfer your data between SharePoint sites without professional knowledge.

Step 1. Log in to SharePoint Online with an admin account.
Step 2. Open the Microsoft 365 admin center and click “SharePoint”.
Step 3. Click the URL of a site you want to move to another in the Active sites list.
Step 4. Open “Settings” from the upper-right corner and choose “Site contents”.
Step 5. Open the “Subsites” list, click the three-dot icon beside the site and choose “Site contents”.
Step 6. Tick the contents that you want to move from this site and click “Move to” in the right-click menu.
Step 7. Select a location in the site list as the destination. Then the selected data will be moved from one SharePoint site to another.
