Hi - I'm looking to set up a standard folder structure so that when new project folders are created in a document library in SharePoint, they all follow the same internal structure.

 

Some folders may even contain standard document template files.

 

what's the best way to do this?

 

We currently have one document library for all client work and each project is in a separate folder, with 4 sub folders in each.

 

Thank you!

Did you try using Document Sets ?

You can enable document set feature at site collection level add it as a content type and create empty folder structure with in that content type. You can also add document template files with in that folders.

 

If you have further questions please let me know

I haven't yet - is there somewhere I can find a step by step guide to creating these?

I have found a guide on document sets but it only seems to allow specific files to be added, not folder structures.

 

Thank you

Hi @Angela McGhin, @Deleted,

 

Sorry to wake this post up, would you kindly share your approach to creating the folder structure template?

 

Many thanks,

HI @Angela McGhin ,

 

Try this guide https://support.office.com/en-us/article/create-and-manage-document-sets-c71d5796-d559-48de-b1b3-423... 

I can't remember is it will setup documents within the folders or not.
