Managed Terms

Managed terms are placed in central repository, controlled and managed by a selected group of administrators or librarian. This enables consistency across users, provides hierarchical organisation, and enforces strict information architecture. In the SharePoint Term Store Management Tool, users with sufficient permissions are able to manage and perform CRUD operations on terms in the hierachy.

Like keywords, terms can be added to many types of content within SharePoint.

E.g. To add a managed term to the document, click the drop down on the document (inside the document library that has been enabled for tagging with terms) and select Edit Properties. Find the managed metadata field and either start typing a term or click the Browse for a vlaid choice icon on the right. This will open the Select Managed Metadata dialog.
