How to access the term store

The term store is accessible through the following URL: “https://[your tenant’s name].sharepoint.com/_layouts/termstoremanager.aspx” but if you are assigned the MetaShare role “MetaShare Content Administrator” you have a direct link to it.

  1. Go to MetaShare’s start page.
  2. Click on the “Settings” function in the top bar:
    MetaShare's "Settings" function
  3. Click on the “Term Store” element in MetaShare settings’ left navigation menu.
    Link to the term store from within MetaShare Settings

All users can open the term store but in order to manage term sets and terms you need one of these permissions:

  1. Term Store Administrator – these users have permission to manage all the items in the term store, e.g. defining which languages to use in the term store, creating new term set groups and assign users to the group manager role.
