Delayed template chooser?

hey everyone

Today I’ve found something nice when I was creating a new site collection..

No it wasn’t the central admin that I’ve found.. but in fact when I was choosing my template for the root web


I saw that in the “custom” tab , I could choose my template later… now this came in very handy because I had made a backup from an Office 365 site and I needed to create it as root web..

So I of course selected this and clicked on OK.

Now I had the wsp of the site template that I took from the office 365 site, all I had to do was to figure out a way to add this to my site collection (site templates list) and create my root web from this wsp.

Funnily enough SharePoint again provided me with the solution.


So now I’ve selected the “Solution gallery” –> uploaded the wsp and I could select the site template that I wanted.


Cool feature that I didn’t even know it existed. Glimlach
