In this post we will discuss how to resolve an issue which comes while trying to Save Site as Template in SharePoint 2016. Recently when I was trying to save the site a template I got the below error:
Sorry, something went wrong.
Sorry, this site can’t be saved as a template. It contains apps that don’t work in templates: <App name>

The issue was that I added a 3rd party SharePoint Apps from the App Store. This issue actually comes when you have apps, that can not be saved as a part of the site template.
For a workaround you can remove the affected app or apps from the site and then save the site as a template.
Once you have Saved the template, after that you can re-add the apps to the site.
This is not a proper solution but a workaround.
