In SharePoint 2010, I am trying to search by department. I am importing all the user profiles from Active Directory, and I have the department user profile field being populated from the Active Directory user accounts.
I read a post on this forum that stated to use "department:ThisDept" as the search syntax to search for department - In this example I am trying to search for "department:62 - Tech Support", however no results are returned even though I can look at a users
MySite page and clearly see that their department is 62 - Tech Support.
Do I need to do any thing to the department property like make it a Managed Metadata property with Taxonomy, and if so, do I use the same steps that I used for converting the multi-string properties to taxonomy when I updated to 2010 from 2007?
