Dear All,

I'm trying to setup a new column in a document library to use manage metadata created in term store.  When I try to save the new column, this error appears The Taxonomy feature (Feature ID "73EF14B1-13A9-416b-A9B5-ECECA2B0604C") has not been activated.

After googling, I've found that this solution is not active in a "BLANK" template web site and is hidden. Also I've found a Sandboxed Solution which didn't work because Sandboxed solutions are no longer supported...

I'm NOT a Visual Studio Developer so I don't know how to enable this through code.

Is there a way to enable this?

 

Thanks

Rodrigo

You need to enable the feature by means of powershell...use PnP to simplify the process: https://github.com/SharePoint/PnP-PowerShell/blob/master/Documentation/EnablePnPFeature.md

Thanks!! but it didn't work

after install I run the following (I also try with -force switch):

 

Connect-PnPOnline –Url https://xxxx.sharepoint.com/sites/mysitecollection -Credentials (get-credential)
Enable-PnPFeature -Identity 73EF14B1-13A9-416b-A9B5-ECECA2B0604C
Enable-PnPFeature -Identity 73EF14B1-13A9-416b-A9B5-ECECA2B0604C -Scope site -force

I have the same error when I try to add a column to a document library with a Managed Metadata Type.

It works! Obviously I had to wait for the timer service. This don't work as "DeploySolution -inmediate" stsadm command :D
Gracias!
