I have created SP survey and saved it as template.Then I created a survey using that template.I was able to find that template belongs to Survey through (g_wsaListTemplateId = 102).But I din't get any reference to identify the name or id of the custom template that I have used.

Can anyone help me finding out the name of the custom template used to create that list?


  • Using what?? JS or C#? – Atish Dipongkor - MVP Nov 3 '16 at 5:43
  • I created in site itself .SiteContents->Add an app->Survey. By going to SurvEdit.aspx of that survey I used "Save as template" option. – NivethaSri Nov 3 '16 at 5:47

Another option is to do via Exporting List Schema via export list command.

To export List Schema follow below url:


where {ListGuid} corresponds to the List Guid

To find out you List Guid go to List - List Settings and copy List Guid from URL ideally it would be with query strin name "List={guid}"

In the generated List Schema you will find ServerTemplate that corresponds to List Template ID
