We have a lot of business templates (circa 50+) and have recently moved to SharePoint.
Our templates are stored in a document library and we have become aware that if someone opens a template now from the SharePoint library, any changes are saved back to the template.
Obviously the expected action would be as before, the user should be prompted to save the dotx as a docx. This is not the case.
If we use the "Upload template" option on SharePoint, we will have a dropdown with 50+ choices which is not practical.
Also we would have to implement the templates across every document library - not practical.
Is there any other ways to achieve what is the expected action on opening a templates (dotx / xltx) on SharePoint?
