I'm trying to add a site term group (and terms) using the new term store experience. I'm using a default communication site and also tried a group connected teams site.
I simply don't have the "Add new term group" button and term store says "You have view-only access to the term store properties.".
I have tried adding myself as Site Owner (next to being site admin) - no change.
When I add myself as global term store administrator, I can create a term group within the site. I can then assign myself as contributor and then remove myself as global term store adminstrator and can readily work with the term group within the site collection.
- Are site collection term groups not something we do anymore? Are they pretty much "Not supported" anymore? (do note that the documentation doesn't talk about them: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/set-up-new-group-for-term-sets)
- Is the process I described the "correct" process, as-in "ask your local term store administrator to add a term group to your site, and add you as the owner of that group"?
- Am I missing something?
Note: I am not talking about global term groups/sets - site collection level only. It used to be that you are the boss of your site collection as site admin, but either I am doing something wrong or something changed.
