List Templates

This reveals granular options for your new List Template:

Template Privacy

Templates like these are created within a Space, and, therefore, only people with access to that Space are able to use them. More information on Space privacy can be found here.

Important Note

Templates for Spaces, Folders and Lists will always include tasks in those locations. If you'd prefer just templating a layout instead of tasks, use view templates instead.
