Hi

 

I am having trouble creating a sharepoint list from a template. I am not getting the option. When I click New I get the drop down to select a list or document library etc.

But when I click list, instead of taking me to the Create A List Page as the Microsoft Documentation describes, I get a sidebar come in from the right, where I can enter a name and description, and then get taken straight to a blank list.

There is no option coming up to even choose a template. I have tried to follow the documentation but my experience is not as described there. Is there a setting or a feature I am missing that anyone knows about?

I've had similar issues and found the only "fix" is to navigate to the "classic experience".

Hello, Please check this information and get solve your problem.
Select + New list to open the Create a list chooser. ...
Select the template you want, and select Use template. ...
Enter a name for your list, an (optional) description, select an (optional) color, icon, site to save to, and then click Create. (advertising link removed)
