Posibility to display the category name(s) in views?

Thank you for making your extension available to the public. Taxonomy functionality is really missing in SharePoint.

I noticed that in a taxonomy enabled document library the site column "Kategorien" is added. When adding this column to a view it lists the selected category ID's seperated with colons. Is it possible to let it show the category names instead of the ID?

Hi Thomek,

Thank you, for your reply!

At the moment it's not possible to show the names of the categories in the document library. To get the possibility to use taxonomy across multiple site collections, we can't use a simple Lookup-Field. That's the reason we had to save the IDs of the list items and can not show the names of the categories.

When we find a usefull facility, to show the names of the categories across the site collections we will implement it.

Best regards,
