Is there any (non-programmatical way) to group by a managed metadata column. My managed metadata column is in my view, but I can't select it in the 'Group-By' dropdowns, why? I'm using a SharePoint 2013 site on sharepoint.com.

Thanks in advance, D

Grouping by a Managed Metadata Column with "Allow multiple values" set to true is NOT possible (it just will not work properly anyway).

If "Allow multiple values" is set to false, it works just fine. I just double-checked it:

  • Thank you very much, this was exactly the answer I was looking for! I must however consider the cons of having no multiple metadata now, I'll see how this works out, but thanks.
