From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC313294 · Published Jan 11, 2022

Action Required by Mar 31, 2022


Message Summary

Updated Timeline: We apologize for not sending an earlier update regarding our delayed rollout. We delayed the feature release to ensure the best possible experience for our users, and it is now ready. As previously mentioned (MC238780 – February 2021), this new feature will enable the ability to add taxonomy columns directly to library views in modern SharePoint libraries.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88828.

When this will happen:

Targeted Release (select users and entire org): We will begin rolling this out in mid-January and expect to complete rollout late January.

Standard Release: We will begin rolling this out in early February and expect to complete rollout late February.

How this will affect your organization:

Users will see a new “Managed metadata” option as a column type within the “Add column” menu in SharePoint lists and libraries.

On selecting the option, users will be able to specify the column information such as its name and description, and select the desired term set or term that exists within your organization, to associate the column with.

Before this update, users had to create managed metadata columns from within “More options” in the Add column experience.

What you need to do to prepare:

You might want to notify users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
