What is a SharePoint Policy and Procedure Template?
Developing templates is easy with SharePoint. To do so you create a SharePoint site with the appearance and features that you want it to have and then save it as a template. This is a quick and easy way to lock in the site setup into a reusable condition that you can use as the basis to create other sites. The downside, however, is that user templates can lead to performance problems, and it may not be the best approach when creating reusable templates for an entire organization. To avoid this problem, you should use site definitions to create templates that will form the basis for creating new sites. The upside of this approach is that site definitions do not suffer from the same limitations as user templates. When you organize information in a template, you have created a policy and procedure on how that template will be used more than once in SharePoint.
