How does one give a user permission to create list templates? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using MOSS SharePoint 2007 enterprise.

    From searching the web, I have found various pages that show the clicks to take to create a list template.

    However, what I am encountering is this. I am a member of the owner group for a site. I go to a list's settings and click on create a template for this list. I get an "Access denied" message.

    So, if I am one of the site owners, why can't I create a template?

    Do I have to make uses site collection owners to be able to create templates?

    That seems a bit extreme.

  • Hi,

    Design or above level permission levels are able to use save list as template feature so you should verify the permission.Make sure you are not breaking permission at list level. You should also check  "List Template Gallery " permission ( go to site settings-->click list templates--then go to settings page to verify permission.

  • Thank you. I am awaiting word back from the user as to whether this worked.

    I believe the option we chose was to break the inheritance and give the user design permissions just for this list, since that is not permissions we wish the user to have against the other 300 or more sites on the site collection.

    I will let you know if this fixes things.
