Can custom project templates be created so they appear in the "template" list when creating a new project?

I'm looking to provide a collection of pre-defined and sanctioned project templates to users along with a useful description - just like is done with the built-in templates.

I'm hoping to avoid a much less clear set of XML files in a directory for users to have to browse and import from - which would require separate documentation.

Yes, you can add your Project XMLs to the Template folder...

<Install Dir>\proddata\project_templates


This folder can be modified and your Templates removed as the system is updated with future releases. You will need to mind the changes as you perform those upgrades. You will most likely have to replace them after the upgrade completes.

The other option is to create a "Template" folder and have them just pick/choose from that folder (Read only) then just copy it into their working folder for tweaking/modifications.
