Upload Meetings List Templates
A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström
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.
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
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
- In the List Template Gallery click on the STP file you want to copy to
another site collection.
- Save the file to your PC.
- Open the site settings of the other site collection
- Click on the 'List templates' link in the Web Designer Galleries group.
- 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.
