Hi, GatsbyinEnglish,

Save the template to the "Monthly" folder
or
Save the template in the "Monthly" folder.

Open the "June" folder from the "Monthly Review" SharePoint site.
or
Open the "June" folder in the "Monthly Review" SharePoint site.

Select "approved" in the "Status" drop-down list.
or
Select "approved" from the "Status" drop-down list. 

I think all of those prepositions work well. "to" and "from" imply movement, while "in" does not. Finally, I prefer "on" with "list."
