Getting Child Content Types to be able to have unique column term set anchor points


  • Hi

    Now I seem to remember cracking this in SharePoint 2010  and greater but for the life of me I can't remember how I did it ...

    I have a example

    Term Group: Policy Types

    • Term set:  Corporate Policy
    •    Term:  Dress Code ,   ...
    • Term set :  IT Policy
    •    Term: Email Correspondence ...

    Now say I have a base Content Type: Policy Base

    Which has a Policy Type metadata site column 

    I will need to point the anchor term set and one of the above term sets but this should only overridden in each of my child content types .

    Now I create 2 child content types that inherit from Policy Base

    • IT Policy 
    • Corporate

    Each child content type, although has the same Policy Type Meta Column but each should be able to have unique Term Set anchor points and not a common one 

    Can I do this easily as I seem to only have whatever was set in the base content type and not at the child instance level ?

    I have a feeling this very simple to resolve. 

    Hope this makes sense
