Hi All

I am just trying to create a template for creating new office 365 sites, but the option to "Save as Template" is missing.

I have done some reading and it looks like sites that tide to office 365 group (which is done automatically) cannot be saved as templates. So i am wandering what are my options in this case.

And yes - Custom Scripting is on and publishing features not enabled.

Thanks

Save as template is not the recommended way to generate a site template Today. You should take a look at doing with PnP
