I have created a document workspace library, but now users can only select one document template when clicking "New Document".

enter image description here

I have found this screenshot above, but could anyone explain me where I can add such additional templates as seen in the screenshot?

Thanks in advance.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

  1. Go to Library Settings -> Advanced settings -> Set Allow management of content types? to Yes -> click OK button
  2. Site settings -> Site content types -> Create -> Enter Name (f.e. PowerPoint), add description -> Select parent content type from: Document content types -> Parent Content Type: Document -> click OK button -> click on Advanced settings link -> Upload a new document template (f.e. powerpoint.pptx) -> click OK
  3. Go to Library Settings -> In content types area click Add from existing site content types -> select type, that you created -> click OK

    In addition, you may need to create new Document Content Types for your additional templates. A Document content type can only have 1 template. – Andy Burns Mar 9 '12 at 15:18
  • ok, I will try this out :) (About the my post on serverfault: didn't know there was this sharepoint stackexchange site) – juFo Mar 11 '12 at 10:45
