If a manager of a place has allowed a place to be used as a PlaceType, create the PlaceType on the server to make it available for creating new places.
Note the following points:
- You can only create a PlaceType from a place that is less than 1 GB in size.
- You cannot create a PlaceType from a place that uses expanded membership.
To create a PlaceType, perform the following steps:
- Log in to the server as an administrator.
- Click Work with Templates.
- Click Create PlaceType.
- Type a name for the PlaceType. The name you type appears in the list of PlaceTypes available to users for creating places.
- Select the name of a place from which to create a PlaceType.
- Click Next.
- Perform the following steps to provide a description, image, or URL link to a Web page containing more information:
- Click the PlaceType.
- Click Edit.
- Select one of the following options:
Optional: Type or edit a description to display next to the PlaceType in the list of PlaceTypes.
Optional: Select an image file that contains a "thumbnail sketch" of a page in the PlaceType. The image file must be a GIF or JPG file, and the image itself should be no larger than 100 pixels by 80 pixels. The thumbnail sketch appears next to the PlaceType name in the list.
Optional: Below Optionally, you can provide a URL for users to visit for more information, specify a URL to a Web page containing more information. The PlaceType will display a "More info" link.
- To refresh the PlaceType and edit the PlaceType information, select Yes, copy changes and update the information below.
- To edit the PlaceType information without refreshing the PlaceType, select No, simply update the information below.
As you set up a place to meet the needs of your team or organization, you may want to preserve your customizations for use in other places. You can accomplish this by creating a PlaceType from it, a template from which users can create places.

When a place first inherits a newly inherited scheduled PlaceBot (agent) from a PlaceType, the place manager must sign the PlaceBot in order for it to run.
