Error Saving List as Template

I have full control. So why can’t I save a list (or library) as a template?

As the owner of a sub-site, you have full control. You can create a list and get to list settings. But when you click Save List as Template, you get an error.

The reason is that list templates are stored in the List templates gallery—which is a document library—on the root of the site collection. If you don’t have Full Control there, you can’t save to the gallery. Thus, you can’t save a list as a template.

You have two options. First, you can obtain the necessary permissions to the root of the site collection. If that’s not possible, then your site collection administrator will have to create the list template for you. Perhaps with enough requests, you’ll get the permissions you desire.


  1. Learning to proofread your work yourself is a a must-have skill. But, it always helps to have a second pair of eyes review your work to make sure you haven't missed embarassing typos, or grammatical and syntactical errors. I'd suggest WordsRU.com for this. It also saves you a lot of time to have your work formatted according to the right style. Saves you a lot of time and allows you to focus on your work.

  2. I agree that a second pair of eyes is absolutely essential to avoid rejections. Through WordsRU.com I was able to get top class editing and proofreading, manuscript critique. They also write excellent author profiles and book synopsis, so pretty much the entire package.
