  • Hi Laura,
    Do you have any training on creating customer Templates? We are a small grocery chain but we are growing and I have to build the same site over and over again. It would really be nice to customize a template that can be used to create these store sites for our intranet. I’ve done some searching on creating a custom template but it looks pretty complex and there isn’t much out there. This would be for SharePoint Online by the way. Thanks!!

    • Currently, the only way is that complex way with the site design and writing code in JSON and XML, and you still don’t get web parts on pages with that. As soon as Microsoft comes out with something better, I’ll write about it.
