Use the content center site template for Microsoft Syntex


The content center site template is provided in the SharePoint look book service, which is no longer being updated. Some of the information in this template might not reflect the current Syntex features.

The Microsoft Syntex content center site is a ready-to-deploy instructional SharePoint site template designed to help you better understand Microsoft Syntex capabilities.

You are introduced to the tools and information you need to create and train your own models. You'll then be able to use this site as a central content repository or as the control center for managing your own Microsoft Syntex models.

In this site, models can be trained and evaluated using your own content. However, to apply the models to libraries, a license for Microsoft Syntex is required.

Provision the site

The content center site can be provisioned from the SharePoint look book service.

You must be a SharePoint Administrator or Global Administrator to provision the site.


Microsoft recommends that you use roles with the fewest permissions. This helps improve security for your organization. Global Administrator is a highly privileged role that should be limited to emergency scenarios when you can't use an existing role.

  1. From the main page of the SharePoint look book, on the View the designs menu, select Syntex > Syntex content center.

  2. On the Content center page, select Add to your tenant.
