Error creating Project Sites from custom site template in #ProjectOnline / #SharePoint Online #PPM #Office365

A quick post, if you are finding that all of a sudden your project sites are failing to create with the error below:

CreateWssSiteContent: Creating project site failed! Project Uid= <site details> Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: The site template requires that the Feature {e995e28b-9ba8-4668-9933-cf5c146d7a9f} be activated in the site collection. at Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities.SPUtility.ThrowSPExceptionWithTraceTag

Chances are you using a custom site template and this stopped working within the last week or so. The feature ID SharePoint is complaining about is a “MobileExcelWebAccess” feature. This can’t just be enabled.

The fix is straightforward, locate the site which you used to create the site template and save that site as a template again with a different name / version then link this to the Enterprise Project Type/s. Repeat this for all custom site templates.
