Creating Powerful SharePoint2010 Term Stores (Taxonomy)with MindManager Jim Ehrenberg Senior SharePoint Architect SharePoint Pros
Disclaimer I do not work for MindJet. I am not a partner with MindJet. I just think it is a very powerful tool for anyone using, planning, managing SharePoint. Everything I am showing you today can also be accomplished with Excel as well as other methods. The Term Store concept and the use of taxonomy is the important take away.
Please show by raise of hands Do you know what the SharePoint Term Store is? Do you know what MindJet is? Do you use site columns, content types, or lookup fields? Do you have a defined taxonomy of any type? Are you using tagging? Who is a newbie to this stuff? Who did not raise their hand to any of these?
OK, so what is the end result of what we are trying to accomplish here?
1- Lay the foundation for taxonomy at your organization
2- Enhance SharePoint with standardized taxonomy
3- Enhance filtering and search experience Faceted type selectors based on metadata fields make grouping and sorting a breeze Powerful filtering makes it easier for end users to find what they need
How will we demonstrate these concepts? We will use a SharePoint site to manage a zoo Obviously lots of information is entered that relates to animals People use different terms for animal names: Lion, African Lion, Lion, Panthera leo We need to standardize our taxonomy We will build an animal taxonomy in MindMap We will bring it into SharePoint We will apply it!
For today everything is already set up but let me show you the process
