Document templates in group-connected SharePoint sites

Posted by

I completed the AIIM Managing Information in SharePoint and O365 course a while ago and I am trying to add a document template to a content type, but getting an access denied error when uploading the template document, even though I am a site owner. It is a group-connected site, which appears to be the source of the problem, according to this Microsoft post: Cannot upload document template to content type

Has anyone found a work around for this? Is it really impossible to add a document template to a content type in a group-connected site?

I’m a Microsoft partner and on the ‘fast’ release track and just checked both a modern and classic site and both exhibit that behaviour when trying to attach a document template to a content type.

An example of where an MS development team didn’t think the use case all the way through before release.
