Document Template section is not available when creating a new Document or Form Library

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

When I attempt to create a new document or form library by clicking View All Site Content, then click Create, then select Document Library, the Document Template section at the bottom is not available - it doesn't even show on the page.

 How do I get that section to show up?

Custom document library template at farm level.


Dear all..

I'm trying to create a custom document library template at farm level, as I want to template to be available in all the sites I create.

The thing is that I'm not sure if I'm taking the correct approach. I just need a standard document library with 3 additional columns (Metadata) 2 text fields and one date field. I will then add a document library of this type to a custom site template I've already created. (So instead of list with Type '101' I will use my custom 10055 library.

The way I'm trying to do this is:

1. I make a copy of the FEATURES\DocumentLibrary folder of my installation. So now I have FEATURES\CustomLibrary folder

2. I create an empty SharePoint project in Visual Studio 2010 and map the TEMPLATE folder, and the I add CustomLibrary folder and all the files and subfolders in it.

3. I edit the feature.xml, and add a newly generated GUID

4. I make the modifications I need to the other xml files included in the DocLib and SiteTemplates subfolders. (Type=10055, etc..)

5. I right click on the solution and deploy.


After this, I can't see my custom library when I try to create a new item in my sites. 

One thing I don't understand is why the OOTB DocumentLibrary feature has HIDDEN = true in the feature.xml file. Anyway I've tried both in my custom template, but

Altering in-document form layout for Document Library Columns



My users need to add metadata to documents they check out of a Document Library while they are in the document. That works fine (the forms appear at the top of the Word Document, underneath the task bar). However, the layout of the forms is kind of bad. Is there a way to redesign the forms in the top of a word document so that they look better?



Saving a Template Directly to a SharePoint Document Library


I have created several content types to create new documents in a document library, did all the plumbing and stuff and it works great. So a user selects new, then selects the contenty type and the associated template opens. User edits the document and when (s)he is happy presses save and then....the user is prompted with a dialog box pointing to "his local harddrive" instead of the document library!!

In MOSS2007 when a user did the above he could directly save it to the document library.

Possible bug in SP2010 - Managed metadata column and STP document library template


Hello I have a problem with managed metadata on two different servers and would like to ask you to try it.

I assume you have managed metadata service running.

1, Open some document library in some site
2, Create column - managed metadata type and select some termset and set it as required.

3, Upload a document and fill in metadata when you will be asked.

4, Then edit properties and check, that metadata are there.

5, Save this library as template.

6, Deploy document library from this template and try steps 3+4.

My problem is, you can select metadata, but they are not saved. e.g. when you check document properties managed metadata are not there.

Can you confirm this behavior ?
Thank you very much.


P.S.: one more weird thing. If you do metadata filling using office 2010 compatible application. Metadata remain there, but they are not visible in document library properties.

trouble associating template in document library?


I am having trouble associating a template with a document library.  When I enter the URL for the template under the Advanced Settings for the library, I get an "Invalid URL" error message. I've compared my URL to other templates on other sites and I think I'm doing it correctly.  The name of my document library is "Link Checks".  I put my template, BrokenLinksTemplate.doc in Links Check/Forms  so that my URL is formed: "/Link Checks/Forms/BrokenLinksTemplate.doc".

Can anyone advise me what I might be doing wrong?

Document Set not working from a Site/Library Template


Hi all,

found a strange bug ...

Created a site in SharePoint 2010, added the document set content type to a document library.  I then created some standard document sets within the document library to use in a site template.

However, when I created a new site from the site template the document sets appear as folders, with no document set info section when you go into them.  However when you do the drop down on the name in the library it shows "Document Set Version History".

It is as though the document sets were only half recreated.  I can create a new document set in the same library and that shows as it should.

Anyone else come across this?  Anyone have any tips or solutions? Incidentally the document sets are also not working when a new library is created from a library template.  They have the correct icon, but the link that has been automatically created does not work.

Oh, you can create new document sets within the newly created library (within site template or from a library template) and they work fine.  It is only document sets that are saved within the templates.

When looking at a document library from a template that included a document set the link to the document set itself has been recreated completely wrong.

This is the link on the original document set

Merge Upload form and editform in Document library upload document



I have a document library.  When the user click on the upload, I want to display an entry form that have: Name, description, keywords and file with the browse button. All those fields should be on the same page. 

The problem is that by default when the user click on upload button, it get redirected to _layouts/Upload.aspx which ask the user to browse for the document, when he click ok, it is redirected to Forms/EditForm.aspx to provide the Name, description and keywords field. 

My client do not want to have two pages, he just want to enter and upload the file all in one page.

Any ideas how can I accomplish this?

Thank you,

External Data Fields in a Word Template saved as a content type in a document library with multiple


I have created a Word Template for a Document Library that has an External Data Column in it of Client Name which also adds Client Address1, Client Address2, Client City, Client State, & Client Zip.  Now this works fine for a Document library with that template as the Template.dotx file. 

I want to be able to make a bunch of Templates and have them all as Content Types in one Library.  When I do this I cannot get the External Data Quick Parts to work.

Anyone have any ideas?
