This SharePoint tutorial, we will discuss how to fix error Save list as template missing in SharePoint Online.
Save list as template is a very good feature in SharePoint. We can reuse a SharePoint list by saving the list as template. Then we can download and uploaded into another site and can reuse it. But if you are working on SharePoint Online modern team sites, then you might not see the Save list as template option in the list settings page under Permissions and Management.
According to Microsoft, SharePoint Online group-connected team sites do not currently support list templates. For other SharePoint Online sites, enable scripting to use list templates.
Save list as template missing in SharePoint Online modern team site
Follow the below steps to enable Save list as template in a list in SharePoint Online modern team sites.
Run the below SharePoint Online management shell cmdlets.
Import-Module Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.Powershell $tenantName = "Yourtenantname" $SiteURL ="https://$($tenantName).sharepoint.com/sites/TSInfoModernSite" Connect-SPOService -Url "https://$($tenantName)-admin.sharepoint.com" Set-SPOsite $SiteURL -DenyAddAndCustomizePages 0
If in your Office 365 tenant, the custom script is already enabled then, after running the above cmdlets, you can be able to see the Save list as template option in SharePoint Online modern team sites.
But if you do not have custom scripts enabled then follow the below steps to enable custom script at the tenant level.
We can do this at the SharePoint Online admin center.
Open SharePoint admin center and if you are using the modern SharePoint admin center, then click on Settings from the left navigation and then click on Can’t find the setting you’re looking for? Go to the classic settings page like below:
This will open the Tenant Settings page, there search for Custom Script.
Here choose Allow users to run custom script on personal sites and Allow users to run custom script on self-service created sites radio button like below:
Alternatively, you can also access the Tenant Settings page directly like below:
Note: It may take 24 hours to reflect the changes, but usually it takes less time to reflect.
Once you enable custom script, now you can see the Save list as template option like below:
