My users have a requirement in SharePoint Online to create new versions of Word and Excel documents from an existing document "template". The templates are simple pre-formatted Word or Excel docs.
Ultimately what I would like to happen is when a user clicks "new" in the document library, in addition to the defaults of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc, a list of document templates would also show up along with the defaults:
I know in SharePoint 2010 this is possible (see this post: How do I configure a document library to create a new document using a custom template?).
An attempt was made to create a new Content Type and modify the List Settings to include that Content Type, however now when clicking "new", it brings up the Upload dialog rather than the default "Create a new file" dialog.
Is this doc templating possible in SharePoint Online? Ultimately it would be best if this were out of the box, however we could potentially roll a custom solution as well.
Any insights would be appreciated.
