Hi there

 

I have a strange request. I have created a document library template for a client and have shown them how to create a new library each time they need to by clicking add an app and going to the template but they feel this is too difficult. Is there a way to create a quick link to the document Library template on a page so they can just click on this and it will create the document library for them ? 

 

Using Modern sites in SharePoint online. 
Thanks

Dee

Solution
Try this:

Browse to the templates as if you are going to add a new library - e.g the URL will end with '_layouts/15/addanapp.aspx'

Click your template

Click Advanced Options

You should now find the URL in the browser has changed to one specific to your template - copy that URL, and put that as a link on a page, for your user to click - then they just have to enter the name, and click Create.
