SharePoint default page templates

From Microsoft Corporation

MC220031, Stay Informed, Published date: Aug 7, 2020

We originally announced this feature in MC215704, June ’20. After making changes we are ready to proceed with the roll-out.

Default page templates allow site owners to set a default template for all editors who are creating pages and news on their site.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 64529.

When this will happen

  • We will begin roll-out to Targeted Release in mid August and expect to be complete for all tenants by mid September.

How this will affect your organization

Set template

SharePoint site owners will be able to set the default template in the page template picker.

Pick template

The default template will be pre-selected when an editor opens the template picker. However, they will have the option to select a different template before they create their page.

We have also created an additional entry point to edit or delete templates from within the template picker. Previously this action was only available in the template library.What you need to do to prepare

You might consider updating your user documentation and training. Learn more about creating and using page templates in SharePoint
