We have a document library in which we're using a MMD termset to represent the document category. The most comfortable view for our users is a grouped-by-category view. Because the default grouping mechanism doesn't respect the term hierarchy, we've set the Category field to "Display the entire path to the term in the field". This does result in the hierarchy being expressed, but it's pretty noisy and hard to read.
... [+] Category : Reports [+] Category : Reports:Investment:Asset Allocation:VendorX [+] Category : Reports:Investment:Asset Allocation:VendorY [+] Category : Reports:CAFR [+] Category : Reports:Investment:Performance:VendorX [+] Category : Reports:Investment:Performance:VendorY ...about a hundred other categories...
There are a lot of categories, and it's pretty ugly.
Is it possible to change the output of the termset string, even just to inject a space on each side of the colon separator?
I also tried creating views for each of the top level terms, which would filter the results like "Begins with 'Reports'", but of course they thought of that and disabled filtering MMD by 'begins with'.
The Managed Metadata Navigation library feature is not cutting it either - we also use Document Sets and as soon as you filter by a group, it shows the set names and also everything spilled out of them. Adjusting the Folder settings for the view don't work as expected.
Any suggestions at all for cleaning this up are appreciated.
