I have a client that is using the Term Store to add managed metadata to a column.  She would like to show the entire hierarchy for the chosen metadata in a column.  So instead of 

German Shepard

 

She wants

 

Animal - Dog - German Shepard.

 

I have been playing around with this for a while, but cannot figure it out using either the managed metadata column or a calculated column.  Any ideas?  Perhaps it is just not possible.

@shawn_fielding If I understand well, you just need to set the column display format to "Display the entire path to the term in the field".

@Martin Coupal Yep.  I'm an idiot.  I somehow did not see that option every time I was looking in there.

There are soo many options that sometimes I miss them too :)
