Office 365 SharePoint Site Templates

When creating a new site collection within O365, you can choose the default (RootWeb) template to use.  

Most of these are the same as SharePoint2013 – but there are a few slight differences.


The easiest way to check the site template ‘name’ for use in PowerShell is actually to use the F12 developer tools – and view the HTML – neat trick !


For reference, I’ve made a list of all of them below.


  • STS#0 – Team Site
  • BLOG#0 – Blog
  • DEV#0 – Developer Site
  • PROJECTSITE#0 – Project Site
  • COMMUNITY#0 – Community Site


  • BDR#0 – Document Center
  • EDISC#0 – eDiscovery Center
  • OFFILE#1 – Records Center
  • EHS#1 – Team Site – SharePoint Online configuration
  • BICenterSite#0 – Business Intelligence Center
  • POLICYCTR#0 – Compliance Policy Center
  • SRCHCEN#0 – Enterprise Search Center
  • SPSMSITEHOST#0 – My Site Host
  • COMMUNITYPORTAL#0 – Community Portal
  • SRCHCENTERLITE#0 – Basic Search Center
  • visprus#0 – Visio Process Repository


  • BLANKINTERNETCONTAINER#0 – Publishing Portal
  • ENTERWIKI#0 – Enterprise Wiki

Hopefully that helps someone out there – it certainly made sense for me – as it was missing the CMSPUBLISHING#0 which is the normal SP2013 “Publishing” site.
