Blank Site Template in SharePoint Online Office 365

Hello,

Recently, I got a lot of complaints from users who said they can not see the Blank Template while creating a site in SharePoint Online.

Well, blank template is still available in the platform but you can not see it.
Because of no access to infrastructure you do not have more to do.
But, you can still use it using powershell.

Only thing, you need to remember here is the template id which is STS#1 for the template.

That's it and you are good to go.

Thanks,
Rahul
