Importing managed Metadata

Today i wanted to create some managed metadata terms.

Since i don’t want to type als terms, i decided to upload them using a CSV file. So i exported a list as excel. saved it as csv file and tried to upload this file.

That didn’t work. I got an error about the csv-file, but also an alert telling me to use “importtermset.csv” as an example.

A short journey on my filesystem told me that this file can be found at the following location

/program files/common files/Microsoft Shares/Web server Extensions/14/Template/layouts/<languageID>

Where <languageID> would be 1033 in an english environment.

Download the sample file and use it to upload terms to the termstore.
