Where term store descriptions show?

Iron Contributor

Hi all,

We want to make use of the description field from our term store so that users can see them.  So far the only place I have found that exposes it is when you chose to browse the term when you are adding a term to a column.  Not only that, but the term set that we want to use is connected to the "Skills" field in Delve, and I have have not been able to expose that anywhere.  Is there a way to expose it that I am not seeing?

No answers? Not even a "nope?"

@shawn_fielding I've certainly not found a way yet. I was hoping to do the same when users select from a number of term sets when setting the page properties but it only displays the term rather than the description which would have been useful.

@RobElliott I realise this is an old thread, but it might help someone that synonyms will be shown in the UI when selecting a term.




This is what I was going to do, but I have a few hundred terms that I need to import. Problem: you can't import synonyms, only term descriptions (which don't display anywhere.)

I'm surprised this has been an issue for more than 3 years.
