FYI from Google if you create your own Google Templates

Google logo
Hello Administrators,

Your organization has custom templates in the woisd.net Google Drive Template Gallery. We’ve phased out this gallery. To help make your templates easier to organize, you can now create custom templates individually in Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms. The old Template Gallery will be removed on or after February 15, 2017.

What you need to do

Before February 15:

You and your users should review the templates stored individually in Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms. For details, see Use your work or school template gallery.
If any templates that you need are missing, submit the templates. Any administrator can update template categories in the Google Admin console. Organizations with G Suite Business (formerly Google Apps Unlimited) can control who can submit and approve templates.
If I do nothing, what will happen?

Any users who try to access the old Template Gallery in Drive will be redirected to Docs and only see the templates that have been submitted.

If users bookmarked specific templates, will those stop working?

Bookmarked templates will continue to work, but we strongly encourage you to submit the templates so others can use them.

Can I control who submits templates for my organization?

Organizations with G Suite Business (formerly Google Apps Unlimited) can control who can submit and approve templates.

If you have additional questions or need assistance, please contact Google Support.

Sincerely,

The G Suite Team
