Let's say I have 2 sites in the same Sharepoint Environment, call them 'Site1' and 'Site2'. I have a Document Library in Site 1 which I saved as a DocLibSite1.stp template. I want to install the DocLibSite1.stp template in Site 2 so I tried 2 things.
Upload the DocLibSite1.stp file in the Site Settings / Solutions (under Web Designer Galleries) and add the Document Library as an App from the template. When going into the Create New App and searching for DocLibSite1 I am getting nothing.
Upload the DocLibSite1.stp file in the xxxxxx.sharepoint.com (root site) Site Setting / Solutions (under Web Designer Galleries) and again, tried to add the document library as an app from the template in Site 2. Again, when searching for DocLibSite1 I am getting nothing.
- When creating a new app from Site 1 and searching for DocLibSite1, I can find it.
- When trying to Activate the solution from the Solutions (from either the root/site1 or site2), the Activate/DeActivate and Upgrade options are grayed out. See Image
- When searching online I found this: See link, but it seems to refer to a Server based Sharepoint Environment and not Online based.
Specific to Sharepoint online, I could not find anything.
Would appreciate help. Thanks
