SPO Modern - Save site as template is missing and not showing in site settings

Julien Anid 216 Reputation points

Hello everyone,


I have a SharePoint online Modern site that is around 40 GB. I would like to save the site as a template including its design content and use the same site template on a different tenant.

I am aware of the Site template limit which is 50 MB and cannot be changed.


I have enabled the custom script by using PowerShell based on the below blog post:


However, even after 3 days the "Save site as template" is still missing from the site settings knowing that It should appear since the custom script is already enabled.

The only thing that I want from the Site is the design content because I don't want to re-build the design content on the destination tenant.

Additionally, I used the https://mover.io/ app migration tool but it seems that it only migrates files from one tenant to another without taking into consideration the design content.

Could you please advise what will be the solution to export the design content of the site and apply it to an SPO modern site that is on a different tenant?
Would highly appreciate it if you can provide the steps required.

Any help is highly appreciated.

    Hi @Julien Anid ,

    According to my research, Modern Sites do not support "Save site as teamplate" feature you're looking for.

    If you want to copy the entire SharePoint Online site to another Office 365 Tenant, we suggest you use a third party to do that.
