SharePoint 2013: How to resolve missing list templates for MySites


You have deployed MySites to your farm.  Your users report that they are unable to create new lists and that the Custom List template is not available.  You investigate and find that this custom template and, indeed, nearly all of the usual templates you are used to seeing, are missing

  • Have your users execute the following steps on their MySites:
    1. Click OneDrive.
    2. Click the Settings "gear" icon
    3. Choose Site Settings.
    4. In the Site Actions group, click Manage site features.
    5. Scroll down to the bottom, and there you'll see the Team Collaboration Lists feature.
    6. Click its Activate button
      This instantly adds all of the templates you are used to seeing.
    7. Now go back to the Site Contents page, and you will see alot more templates available
