Workgroup Templates on Office 365 RRS feed

  • Question

  • When trying to add Workgroup Templates from our Office 365 SharePoint site I get the message "you cannot use an internet address here". We are migrating to Office 365 and will want to have the templates hosted so I really need to be able to use an internet address for the location of the workgroup templates. is there a fix that allows this? Alternatively, is there a better way to locate shared templates in SharePoint & point to them so everyone with SharePoint access can use them?

  • It is probably a late answer. I ran into the same issue and found the following approach useful and comparable to the use of workgroup templates.

    a. you can create and  use templates through the document types in a SharePoint Library. You can also link these document types in a central library

    b. you might create document types on a site level that serve then as group templates. (site content types of the class "document content types" and in the advanced settings you can specify the template)


    hope this helps
