Multiple templates for Document Repository RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have a document repository in SharePoint 2010 and we need to have multiple document templates for it. From the Document Repository > Advanced Settings > Document Template - it only lets us have a single document as the template.

    We would like users to have the option of selecting from multiple document templates, when they are creating a new document in the document repository.

    Thanks,

    Aritra Saha

  • You need to create site content types for each template, then associate the individual templates with each content types.  After that, change the doc lib to allow for mgmt of content types in the Advanced Settings, then add all the content types while removing the default one.  Once you've done this, the New button dropdown will show each template as an option, and when clicked, the user will be presented with the relevant template.
