  1. Save site as "Site Design"

    Classic SharePoint has an option to save the whole site as site template. With modern sites, the concept of site templates have been replaced with site designs.
    Although developers can write code to create a new site design and apply to sites. Wouldn't it be nice to allow users to save the site as "Site Design" which can be re-used later? Thanks.

  2. allow saving modern site list as template (for O365 Group Generated Sites)

    The O365 group generated modern team sites do not allow you to save lists as templates which makes it extremely time consuming if you have to generate a new list with same/similar columns & formatting. The only alternative is to use a traditional team site and loose the group features.

  3. Save modern team sites as an template

    Why's not this an option? I would Love to to have this, I can't find the option on these sites, would make my life so much easier since we're using these as an organization and I need to make them often. I want to make a basic template for projects so I do not need to do them always manually.

    Is there a way to save them and make a new site collection with them?

  5. Limit available site designs to current site template

    The site designs available to users needs to be limited to only those applicable to the current site template. e.g if the current site is a Communications site then only display site designs for that template and not all site designs. Users don't know what site designs to choose and this leads to confusion.

  6. Translated web site template

    There is a nice feature, which enables user easily translate website under his/her profile. However when saving translated website as template, the translations are lost.
    Can You make improvements of SharePoint to be able to create new site with translations?
    This feature is very important in global environment.
    Thank you

  7. Allow the Communications Site Template and Web Parts in Existing Site Collections

    Allow the Communications Site Template and Web Parts in Existing Site Collections by creating a new subsite. Allow the features of the new communications site template to be enabled through site features so that existing sites can be converted to the new template.

  8. Hide classic site templates for sub sites under modern communication and group connected team sites.

    When creating a sub site under a modern communication site or group connected team sites, see options to select "Team Site (classic experience), Blog, Project Site, Community Sit", and these all are classic site templates.
    If the root site (communication site) is customized with modern features like, Theme (for corporate branding), Hub site, Hub site navigation, SPFx Application customizer, the sub site created with classic templates fails to render the above modern features. And it is difficult to navigate to other sites from the classic site.
    Either stop showing such classic site

  10. Provide the site design templates for industries in the modern sites

    It would be great if the modern site would provide the site design templates for industries which were provided for the classic SharePoint sites. These templates were useful, so they would be helpful to organize the modern SharePoint sites.

  11. Improve the Templates feature to allow templates to be created regardless of whether Community Sites or Server Publishing has been enabled.

    Improve the Templates feature to allow templates to be created regardless of whether Community Sites or Server Publishing has been enabled.

    The bug described here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2492356/save-site-as-template-option-isn-t-available-in-sharepoint-online-in-o is entirely unacceptable. Site templates is a required feature in order to be able to use SharePoint effectively, and completely neutering this feature by turning on another feature is absurd. Fix this.

    About making templates from communication sites


    ■Description(内容):
    以下の公開情報から、モダン チームサイトのテンプレート化は、現時点で実装されていないことを確認しています。

    タイトル : "モダン" チーム サイトのカスタマイズ
    アドレス : https://docs.microsoft.com/ja-jp/sharepoint/dev/solution-guidance/modern-experience-customizations-customize-sites

    また、コミュニケーション サイトはカスタム スクリプトを有効化しても、サイトテンプレートとして保存することができないことを確認しているため、チームサイト、コミュニケーション サイトのいずれもテンプレート化がおこなえるよう機能の実装をお願いします。
    I have confirmed from the following public information that Modern Teams site templates are not implemented at this time.

    Title: Customize “Modern” Teams sites
    URL: https://docs.microsoft.com/ja-jp/sharepoint/dev/solution-guidance/modern-experience-customizations-customize-sites

    I also confirmed that communication sites can neither neither have custom scripts enabled nor be saved as a site template. Therefore, I would like to request the ability to make both Teams sites and communication site

  13. Implementation of a back-up feature for modern team sites

    I would request to support saving site as templates on modern team sites or a back-up feature which saves the site like the templating feature does. Because the saving site as a template is not currently supported for modern team sites as the public information also says.

  14. I want to save page libraries as templates

    I want to save page libraries as templates


    ■Description(内容):
    現状ではページ ファイルのテンプレート化に対応しているが、他サイトで類似したページ構成を作成するにあたり、ページ ライブラリそのものをテンプレート化できれば利便性が高い。
    ページ ライブラリのテンプレート化ができるよう機能追加してほしい。
    Currrently page files can be saved as templates, but it will be very convenient to make pages for other sites if page libraries can be saved as templates as well. Thus I hope that a feature to save page libraries as templates will be implemented.

  16. TechCommunity Site as Knowledge Community Site Template

    Office365 provides a great avenue for knowledge management and collaboration. But there is not any standardized template available to setup a knowledgebase. I like techcommunity site(https://techcommunity.microsoft.com) a lot and Microsoft did a great job in creating the community .It would be great to see the same Site as Standardized template in SharePoint.This would be very helpful in creating a knowledge community, organize information and for user engagement.

  17. save as a template sharepoint online list

    Need "Save as a Template" for custom lists in Sharepoint Online for O365 enabled groups (e.g. Teams). We repurpose lists and rebuilding them takes time and labor. If we could save a list (and have choice to include data) as a template this would save numerous hours recreating the same list.

  18. Organization page templates

    I really like the new page templates. However they are all managed on every site collection. It would be useful if you could introduce something like the organization page templates instead of only saved on this site and featured templates. Just like the organization assets library feature, give the ability to centrally manage those. It would also be useful if you could configure if a site collection can inherit those organization page templates btw.

  19. Create the SPO site template if the site has 5000 or more items in the list

    It would be great to create the SPO site template when the site has 5000 items in the list. We cannot create the site template if the list has 5000 or more items. Standard feature does not cover moving the list to other site, so we request to improve the feature of creating SPO site template regardless items in the list.

  20. Make custom page templates available to all sites in hub

    When you create a page template on a hub site, then it would be great if that page template would be available to all sites associated with the hub.
