We are drowning in Office 365 news and we love it!! We share some of our favorites in this episode. This time we are recording using Teams because Christina is on vacation at the Canary Islands and I am in Stockholm. Pretty good sound quality anyway. Thank you for listening. Cheers!
Save list or library as template
Many times when you setup a document library (or a list) with lots of metadata columns, views, etc you want to save it as a template so that you can reuse that model on all other sites without having to do the same setup over and over. But if you go to the Settings of a modern site in SharePoint online you will not find a link to “Save list or library as template” anymore. As an on prem user, you are used to work like this, using templates to be able to setup a list or library quickly somewhere else and that will save you lots of work since you don’t have to recreate the same columns/views etc again. Here are two options to achieve this in SharePoint online:
Option 1: Using Powershell
To enable the “save as template” option you must run a Powershell command. I tried this and it works just fine: you will see the link in the library settings and if you go to “Add an app” your list template will show up as we are used to. Note: you must go to “add an app” because in modern views, if you click on “New” and “Document library” you will not see the list of templates.
When things like this are removed or hidden in SharePoint online, it is of course for a reason, but I cannot tell or judge if it’s a risk to enable this link using the PS command. Maybe someone who reads this knows? Then please leave a comment, it would be much appreciated! It has worked fine in my tenant and the libraries that I added using my template works exactly the same as any other modern library. But I can only say: run this at your own “risk” 🙂
The following cmdlet must be run on the site where the library is that you want to save as template, and then also on the other sites where you want to use the template. So you are not enabling the command on your entire tenant. Open SharePoint online management shell and run the following cmdlet:
Option 2: Using Content Type Hub
In this episode we discuss and use some of the latest news that has been released to Office365 recently. We also talk SharePoint swag, or rather, the lack of it! Don’t you agree? 😉 Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or on Instagram where we are @witgirlspod or on Twitter @sharepointbabe and @bananisen. Thank you for listening!
