Intro to uploading templates to Office Online

In the previous post, we explored the vast array of Publisher templates available on Office Online that you can download and use for free. Though some of those templates were created by Microsoft, most were created by customers like you. In this post, we’ll talk about how you can post your Publisher files to the Office Online community to share with other Publisher users too!

Why upload my templates?

Many users have templates that they use and reuse time and time again. Why not share your solutions with other members of the Microsoft Office community and build up a reputation of fresh designs and creativity among your peers?

How to submit a template

Submitting templates to Office Online is easy. Simply go to the template submission page, and you will be directed to sign in using your Windows Live ID. There you will find easy to use, step-by-step instructions on uploading, and finally sending in your template submission.

Office Online templates 

There is generally a wait time of 1-2 days before your submitted templates are posted, since the templates are checked for viruses, personal information, objectionable content, and copyright material. If your templates are downloaded by your peers enough times, they may even show up in the Publisher application’s catalog!

And that’s it! Simple as that, your templates are uploaded to be shared with Microsoft Office users around the world.
