How to Save a Modern Page as Template in SharePoint Online?
Page Templates in SharePoint Online provides great re-usability and saves a lot of time. Once you finish customizing a page by adding web parts, content, styles, etc. you can save it as a template and create new pages from it, so that you don’t have to start from scratch again! To save any modern page as a template in SharePoint Online, follow these steps:
- Navigate to the page which you would like to save as a template.
- Edit the page and choose the “Save as template” menu item from the save drop-down menu.
- This saves the page as a template under the “Templates” folder of the site pages library. At a later point of time, You can edit this page template if need. Updating the page layout won’t affect any page that are already created from the template.
Alternatively, you can navigate to any page, and click on “Promote” from the toolbar and choose “Save as Page Template” to create a new page template. You can also use: New >> “Copy of this page” from the drop-down menu of any page to create a new page from an existing one.
And now, anyone can create new pages from the template! If you choose a page template, a new modern page will be created exactly with the same structure and look & feel of the template page.
You can click on the little three vertical dots to set it as a default template or remove the template from site!
Once you create a page from the template, you can further customize the created page by adding/removing web parts and other content (That won’t affect your saved template, BTW!).
