I’ve often wondered if the functionality of the “Enterprise Keywords” term set and its control can be recreated with a custom term set. This functionality is mainly:
It turns out that you can, as long as you implement a custom control to do so.
The TaxonomyWebTaggingControl has a boolean property called IsAddTerms that, when set to “true” (the default value is “false”), will attempt to add whatever is currently typed in the control to the control-bound term set.
Hey, listen! To alternatively allow a user to explicitly add a term to the term set, set the “AllowFillIn” property of the control to “true”
This, combined with setting the IsMulti property to true and binding the control to a custom term set, could theoretically reproduce the functionality of the “Enterprise Keywords” term set in a more tightly-governed manner that does not require all terms to be visible throughout the term store, and can add terms automatically to a custom term set.
