I have received the below email from my client:
I am trying to block certain terms in the Term Store from being used for tagging.
In this site https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Create-and-manage-terms-in-a-term-set-549070a7-41c2-4210-9e9c-5fad22bd8748 it states that when I ‘Deprecate a term’, that term itself cannot be used for tagging, but its child terms are not affected and can still be used for tagging.
Hoever, when I do this in the Term store, the child terms will also be affected and are also blocked (I tried to deprecate ‘Agencies’ and its child terms like ‘CAD’ and ‘SPF’ are also deprecated)
Why this is happening? Is our interpretation of what stated in Microsoft site is correct? if not, what is it stating?
