I would like to have an app (Knowledge Libary) with automatically configured settings (like an alert when a document is uploaded). If I configure a Document Library and save it as a template, can I save alerts, content types, and security group with it? I want All Domain Users to have read access to the document library by default. Thanks!
Content Types are included in the template, But I think Alerts and Security is not, when you create the list it will by default inherit permission from the list.
What you could do is to have an library request list that would achieve something like that after item is created (with the target where the library is created) and Workflow would create library, apply security and alerts (not sure if the last one can be achieved with out of the box wf)
