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 rolling this out to Targeted Release customers in mid-June.
- We will begin rolling this out to Standard Release customers in late June.
- We expect the rollout to be complete by mid-July.
How this will affect your organization
SharePoint site owners will be able to set the default template in the page template picker.
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.
