"Save list as a template option" missing. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Would anyone have any explanation or tips as to why there is no option to save a custom list as a template for my site?

    I'm checking under list settings > permissions and management where it would usually be, and there are all of the options that are normally available, except for saving a list as a template.

    Note: I have full permission over the site so I don't see why that would be an issue for creating a new template, but I could be wrong.

  • Quick solution -

    1. Go to list settings and copy the GUID from the URL - /_layouts/15/listedit.aspx?List={GUID}
    2. Go to this URL and replace the GUID with your list GUID - /_layouts/15/savetmpl.aspx?List={GUID}
