Create a library from a template

Libraries are document containers. A library is associated with a single storage account that owns all the documents in your library. Each library has its own specific configuration.

In AODocs, you can create a library from a template. These are libraries that have been preconfigured to answer a specific use case.

Note: You can also:
- Create a library by copy
- Create a library from scratch

Important: Only library creators can create new libraries. This role is defined and managed at the domain level by the by AODocs super administrators. Learn more: Manage library creators.

To create a new library from a template:

1. On the AODocs homepage, press Create library. The Create library page opens.


2. Scroll down to the Library templates section. Select the required template.


A library template page opens, with a description of the main features of the library template. You can also access tutorials.

3. Press Create library in the top right corner of the library template page.

4. A pop-up opens. Enter a name for your new library.

Note: The library name can contain any kind of character (including special characters) but the library name must be unique (two libraries can't have the same name).

5. Select a storage account for your new library.

Note: If you have only one storage account configured on your domain, it's selected by default. If several storage accounts have been configured, select the storage account you want to assign to this library from the list of available storage accounts.

6. Press Create library.


Your library is now created. For Document Management libraries, you are redirected to the homepage of your library in the AODocs user interface. For Team Folder and Secured Folder libraries, you are redirected to the root folder of your library in the Google Drive interface. Once the library is created, the library creator receives an email to confirm that the library has been created.

7. You can now apply permissions and start using your preconfigured library.

Important: When you create a library from a template:
- The library is shared only with the library creator.
- Template documents and attachments are copied from the library template.
