SharePoint default page templates

Default page templates allow site owners to set a default template for all editors who are creating pages and news on their site.

The default template will be pre-selected when an editor opens the template picker. However, they will have the option to select a different template before they create their page.

Create a template

1.Create or open a page or news post that you want to use as the basis for your template. Add or change the web parts and content you want to be in the template, just like you would on any new page. For more information on creating pages and using web parts, see Create and use modern pages on a SharePoint site.

2.When your page looks the way you want, click the down arrow next to Save at the top of the page, and click Save as template.
