SharePoint 2010 : Choose a Column Type (part 10) - Term Set Settings

Term Set Settings

As mentioned earlier, you can connect a column to an existing term set by using the Use a Managed Term Set option. This option allows you to select the existing term set from the box under it, as shown in Figure 32.

Figure 32. Selecting an existing term set.


If you want to create your own new term set instead, select the Customize Your Term Set option. This enables you to create the term set in the box under that option. By default, when you select the Customize Your Term Set option, a new term set is added with the label Untitled. You can rename the term set by clicking on it once and typing the new name. To create terms in the term set, open the drop-down menu for the term set (hover with the mouse over the name of the term set, and then open the menu that appears) and click Create Term, as shown in Figure 33.

Clicking on the Create Term option creates a new term without a label (name), and you can then give it a name. You can then open the menu for that term and either create terms under it (using the Create Term option), move it, or delete it.

A more advanced way to manage the term set is to click the Edit Using Term Set Manager link at the bottom of the box. This opens a new page that has more options for managing the term set, including the description for the term set, an ability to lock down the term set, different sorting options, and more (see Figure 34).
