Important Custom SharePoint List Template Notes

I came across these notes on creating custom list templates when I was searching for a quick reference on list types and base type definitions to use in the CAML ListTemplate element. I copied them verbatim here for my reference. The original post can be found here:

Important details to note are:

  • FeatureId (optional): This is the ID of the feature in which the list template is defined
  • BaseType (required): Specifies the base type, or default schema, for lists created using this template. See the table below for the 5 possibilities.
  • Type: this is the template type on which the new list template is based. Se the table below for all base types of standard SharePoint list templates.
  • DisplayName: the display name of the list template.

More details can be found in André Vala’s post.

The following table lists the 5 base types:

Base Type Description
0 Generic List
1 Document Library
3 Discussion List
4 Survey
5 Issue List

The following table lists all available list templates with their template type id and their corresponding feature id:
