Hi, I've been doing some digging online and cant seem to find detailed information on how to roll out custom templates via group policy so that all users can access the templates when they open the application i.e. word and select file>new. Thanks.

Hello @jonnygray30 

 

I could be wrong (if you ask my ex-wife I am ALWAYS wrong :-p) but I don't think this is possible. You can set up an SPO site to store the templates and the users can access them that way, or maybe somehow programmatically deploy them with a VBA script. I personally just stick them up on SPO so if they change everyone gets an update.
