Windows SharePoint Services 3.0: Document Library saved as a template is not in the Libraries choices on the Create Page

The scenario:

  • A SharePoint user, named Pat, creates a Document Library and saves several forms.
  • The user then requests an administrator of the site to save this as a template (and include the content) named SchoolDocumentLibrary.
  • Pat then tries to Create a new Document Library with the newly created template. However, the SchoolDocumentLibrary is not listed in the Libraries templates.

The solution:

  • List templates are stored in a gallery list at the Site Collection level
  • Users creating new items must have Read access to the gallery list
  • Users that have been given access to a Site Collection at a site lower than the root will not see the List Template Gallery items (as they do not have Read access).
    • Pat had been given access to a site that was 3 levels deep in the site collection. Therefore she did not have read access to the List Template Gallery at the root level.
  • Give users that will be creating document libraries (or lists) using custom templates Read access to the List Template Gallery at the root level of the site collection.
  • NOTE: I have not found a way to give item level permissions to items contained in the List Template Gallery.

HI,

I have been created a Document library Template call it "DLTest" and i used to create more Libraries.

The question is, what should i do to create a powershell script to create document library with "DLTest Library Template"?

To give item level permissions, just modify the view of the list template gallery to include the following field;

Name (linked to document with edit menu)

The you have the context menu per item with "Manage Permisions" as an option.
