Thank goodness, this is the easy part! To add managed metadata to your library (or list), go to the Library Tab > Library Settings:
Docs2

Click on Create Column:
Columns2

Choose Managed Metadata:
TermStore11

Scroll down to see the Term Set Settings section. Expand the Term Sets to the level you want the user to choose from. For example, if I expand and select Southern Africa, the user will only be able to choose from the Terms below Southern Africa. Click OK to save and add your column:
TermStore18

Click on the tags to search for the term you would like to use:
TermStore17

Alternatively you can also start typing in the field and it will search and display the available terms to choose from:
TermStore16

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.

Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
