Trying to use a saved List Template in a different site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I've created a communications plan custom list template and saved it to the list gallery. In searching online for instructions on how to select this list within my PWA project site (the SharePoint site associated with my project) I do not have an option under Web Designer Galleries for List Types (option to select from saved lists/list gallery). I also cannot find anywhere to upload a saved .stp file into my site. Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • T-Bish,

    Did you save the list as a template in the PWA Site Collection or a different one? If it is under the PWA Site Collection, then all you need to do is go to Site Contents >> Add an App on the project site you are trying to create.

    If you saved the list as a template in a different site colelction and have the STP file, you will need to uplaod it to the List Templates Gallery, by uploading the STP file. (http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/26108.importing-of-list-templates-with-stp-files.aspx)

    And finally, if you still have issue, this might help: http://blogs.technet.com/b/victorbutuza/archive/2014/09/08/list-saved-as-template-does-not-appear-under-add-an-app-or-what-lists-can-you-save-as-template-and-use-for-creating-other-lists-based-on-them.aspx
