Hi.

 

We're planning on rolling our own sites and news templates, and tell our content creators to use those instead of the SPO build-in templates. As it's not supported to remove or modify the build-in templates, we'd like to instead be notified if and when content creators create a site or page based on a build-in template. Is this at all possible - is there any attribute or whatever that indicates from which template a news article or site was built, that we can query for example from powershell?

Take a look at the Audit Log Search in the Security & Compliance Centers...there are events for Site creation and you can get notified everytime a site is created
