#Office365Challenge – Term Store Management in Office 365 Part 6 Using Synonyms for Terms. This is an extremely powerful ability which allows you to add other labels / synonyms.

To add synonyms or other labels to your terms, go to Settings > Site Settings > Term Store Management. Expand and click on the term you would like to add to. On the right you will see Other Labels, and have the ability to add multiple labels:
TermStore21

Now when the user types the label instead of the actual term, they will still find the correct term:
TermStore20

Is it just me – or is that simply amazing!!?

So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.
