Upload Meetings List Templates

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint iconIn a series of articles Peter Kalmstrom, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, is showing a way to use SharePoint to automate taking meeting notes and handling meetings and meeting decisions in general.

In the previous demo Peter created an action point list built on the Tasks template and added his custom Action Points content type to it instead of the default Task content type. Then he saved the list as a template, so that it could be used in the whole site collection.

To use the template in another site collection it has to be either manually uploaded to the List Template Gallery of that site collection or added to the site collection with a script. In the demo below Peter shows the manual upload, but first he create a template for the meeting notes list too.

Upload a template file (STP) to another site collection

  1. In the List Template Gallery click on the STP file you want to copy to another site collection.
  2. Save the file to your PC.
  3. Open the site settings of the other site collection
  4. Click on the 'List templates' link in the Web Designer Galleries group.
  5. The List Template Gallery library will open, and you can upload the STP file just like you upload other files to a library.

Before you start using the template in the new site collection, remember to change any default column values set to suit another site collection. Peter uses one site collection per department, and therefore the department column has a default value that must be changed for a new site collection.
