Auto-Update Managed Metadata Term Store from External DB or List

  
Hi all,

I have been able to import terms using the .CSV file within the MMSA Term Store, but is there a way to auto-update the terms from an external list. Example: An external database already has terms and adds terms on a regular basis. Is there a method for updating the Term Store automatically when terms are added in the external source. Perhaps creating a SharePoint List populated with external data and somehow linking this up to the Managed Metadata terms? I know that System keywords are added to the term store when a user tags an item, but is there a way to tie into this functionality for managed metadata?

list of employees - custom list or managed metadata term set ?

  
Hi all, I am working on a intranet site for a small company with 25 employees. They want to create a site for tracking employee training. Most of the items on this site are going to be associated with an employee entity. What is the best way to manage the employee entity ? should I create a custom list called employee or should I create a term set called employee containing the names of all 25 employees ? In a related question is it possible to add a "people picker" field to a custom list ? ( e.g. Training schedule list ) I note that for 'assign to' columns SharePoint provides a dialog which enables you to browse and select users from active directory. Is there a way to add similar lookup functionality to a custom list in SharePoint ? thanks and regards, Counie  

How to add custom properties to terms in the SharePoint 2010 managed metadata term store?

  

There is a "Term.CustomProperties" collection to get the collection of custom property objects for the current Term object from the read-only dictionary.
But where and how to define and set custom properies for terms? This dictionary seems to be read-only by default.

Any help / documentation would be appreciated. / Frank

How to maximize use of managed metadata in the document library?

  
We are creating new Intranet portal based on SharePont 2010 and we have document library with 100-200 documents. Old Intranet is based on previous version of SharePoint. End-users did not like the usability of the document library as it was hierarchical. Users needed to know, which was the folders and its subfolder to find out where is the document. We are currently investigating if we can solve this problem by using managed metadata. We know how to define term set and how to give metadata to the document, but we don't know what is the most usable way to utilizem them in the document library. Let say that end-user would like to see all documents that has managed metadata "User Guide". How to configure document library so that users see only those documents. Not all our users are skilled and we have to provide very intuitive way to search relavant documents to them. Some predefined metadata dropdown would be great.Kenny_I

Setting Managed MetaData default values on site creation

  
I am working on a project where the requirement is to have specific document content types.  I have therefore create a site columns feature which creates all my columns, I have a Site Contentypes feature which creates all my content type and I have list templates based on my content types.  I also have created a couple of Site definition features which create specific list instance based on my list template As part of my content types I have created a few Managed Metadata fields which I wanted to set defaults for on the creation of my sites.  I have therefore created a feature which is right at the end of the WebFeatures section in my ONET.xml.  This features enumerates through all lists, looking for specific column names(managed metadata columns) and looks to set these to specific values.  The code to set the default value on the field is: TaxonomyField documentCategoryField = (TaxonomyField)library.Fields["Document Category"]; if (documentCategoryTerm != null) { documentCategoryField.DefaultValue = documentLibraryDefault.ToString(); documentCategoryField.Update();                                                     }                         &n

Provision DocumentLibrary with Managed Metadata column

  
Via the SharePoint 2010 UI I've created a DocumentLibrary and added a new column of type Managed Metadata. I've associated a TermSet with this column and all works fine. Now I need to create a deployment package in Visual Studio 2010. It is easy enough to create the Document Library. I've followed the below steps 1. Create empty SharePoint 2010 project 2. Added new Empty Element to the project. In the Elements.xml I have <Field ID="{15712E76-A603-43AB-885E-CE48BD216381}" Type="TaxonomyFieldTypeMulti" Name="DocTags" DisplayName="DocTags" ShowInDisplayForm="TRUE" ShowInEditForm="TRUE" ShowField="Term1033" Required="FALSE" StaticName="DocTagsInternal" Group="NotSure"/> 3. Added ContentType to the project. Added FieldRef elements to the Element.xml 4. Added List Definition From Content Type and associated it with the above Content Type. 5. Created a List Instance of the above List Definition. 6. Build and Deploy. 7. Associate the column with a Term Set. 8. Add Document to the Document Library. I can select a Term from the applicable TermSet, but when I save the document I get: Failed to get value of the "DocTags" column from the "Managed Metadata" field type control.  See details in log. Exception message: Invalid field name. {00000000-0000-0000-000

Can Managed Metadata columns be edited in the DataSheet View of a Library or List?

  
Hi, I like to mass set document properties in a library using DataSheet View, the properties are columns based on Managed MetaData values. When I open the doc library in Datasheet view, those columns become read-only. I made sure the library does not require 'Check Out' and also tested it in other views then the AllItems view. Can someone confirm what is the expected functionality and or if there is a bug?

search on managed metadata column values

  
I am trying to search on a managed metadata column in a list.  I have the managed metadata as a mapped property (these are automatically set up actually). I have a column frequency (daily, weekly, monthly, yearly) I can enter a search box owstaxIdFrequency=#a132a333-39f1-4737-9ad4-a932482e025f   //this is the taxonomy guid for Daily.  This shows results. How do I search on the word "Daily" in the frequency column?  (I just want to figure it out on a simple search first meaning just using one search box)   I noticed that there are extra maped columns for managed metadata columns (owstaxIdFrequency also has owstaxIdFrequencyx0020Tag, I tried owstaxIdFrequencyx0020Tag="Daily", but it didn't work)

Managed Metadata columns in Sharepoint Workspaces

  
Hello,   all our document lists use Managed Metadata columns. They are required also.    Sharepoint Workspaces list current values for these columns, but do not allow changing them. Thus effectively making Sharepoint Workspace unusuable, because we can't check-in new documents.   Am I missing something?

I came across this other post which suggests that functionality is not available ? pls someone confirm. Mass-editing metadata when documents are uploaded (individually or in bulk) to MOSS 2010  

Client Object Model - update metadata

  
Is there a way that I can update the metadata for a document in a document list using a UniqueId without having to speciify the library name? If I know the library name and the ID I know how to update the metadata but what I was hoping was that there would be a way of doing it using a UniqueId without knowing exactly which Library the document is in.
