Default Document Library Template

    Question

  • Hi All,

    I have a sharepoint site, and I want all libraries and lists to include the following metadata items...

    * Classification (Public|Private|Confidential)

    * Document Type (ProjectDocument|Personal|

    * Project (Project 1 | Project 2 | Project 3)

    I want all new libraries and Lists to have this metadata.

    Any ideas to how this will be best achieved?

    Cheers

    Micah

  • Hi,

    According to your description, my understanding is that you want to all libraries and list have same metadata items.

    We can create a library or list fix your needs, then save it as template.

    Here are the steps:

    1,  Create a library or a list including the metadata column you want.

    2, Click Library/List Settings-> Save list/document as template-> OK.

    3, Create new library or list with the new template.

    Best Regards,

    Andy Wu

  • Hi Andy,

    Yes I want all my sites libraries and list's to have the same settings (IRM/DocumentTypes) but the tricky bit here is my users can create groups in O365 which automatically provisions a sharepoint site.  I need those sites to have the settings applied preferably with no interaction from me!

    Cheers
