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

Managed Metadata and Site Templates/Solution Packages


I have a new SP2010 site that uses managed metadata. There are multiple 1st level sub sites that contain doc libraries, doc centers, etc using site columns with the metadata. I am wanting to package up these sub sites as site templates. Each sub site will be it's own package.

My questions relate to how the new managed metadata fits in. Can I create a package that will deploy the managed metadata on an enterprise level to the other sites? I have dev, stage, and prod environments and what I am trying to do is create packages to deploy across all 3. Is there a way to package the metadata in this fashion so that when I create my stage and prod environments I can deploy the metadata without having to re-create it manually?

Then once the metadata is configured in stage and prod, I plan on using the new visual studio import solution package template to create site templates for each sub site and deploy that package to stage and prod. Anyone have any tips, tricks, possible road blocks, or suggestions with this approach?


CQWP and managed metadata field filter


Hi everybody,

I want use the CQWP to list all documents from all document libraries of concrete site and i want filter the result with a custom managed metadata field. When I set the query to do in a concrete document library, CQWP allows me to select the managed metadata field that I want to use to filter. But when I select a site and I set the List type to 'Document Library' the fields listed in the filter not shows my custom field.

Anybody knows how resolve it?

Thanks in advance,

managed metadata - is it possible to tell if they are using a hub or the site I am on?


I have a site that I am working on that was set up by someone else.

I have a link to the main site and the managed metadata hub.

If I go to either site /_Layouts/termstoremanager.aspx, I see what appears to be the exact same thing.

Does this mean that the hub is being used and that I can access it from the non-hub site?

Does it mean that the person who set it up made a copy in each and one isn't being used?

I can go to a site column which is configured to point to the term store, but I can't tell what anything is pointing to.

(I also have access to central admin if that helps)


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

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?

Internet facing SharePoint site - user shouldn't have to log in to change the langague

Hello, I am using SharePoint 2010 for Internet sites.  Anonymous access has been enabled.  Language packs have been installed so that users can switch to different languages as required.  However, the only way for a different language to be selected other than the default is for the user to log into the site and then the option would be displayed.....This is an internet facing site with anonymous access therefore users shouldn't have to log in to change the language.  Can someone guide/advise on switching the lanuguage of the site without loggin in. Thanks, Shelley
