I have a managed metadata field as a column in a document library. Users have added multiple keywords through this in some cases. What I'd like to do be able to provide a page for browsing the keywords with links to pages showing all items with those keywords added. Is there a way to do this without SharePoint Designer? Do I need to enable search features?
