    Thanks for the post! This seems like a really elegant solution.

    Hello, I’m trying to get this to work but I cannot select the Enterprise Keywords column in the filter. It simply does not show up. In list views, SharePoint does not allow filtering by multi-value columns. Is this the same phenomenon? What version of SharePoint were you using for the screenshots?

      Hi Teylyn,

      This approach uses the Managed Metadata Service and is therefore a SharePoint Server 2010 feature (not Foundation). On the site libraries you need to enable ‘Enterprise Keywords’ from List Settings > Enterprise Metadata and Keywords Settings.

      I hope this helps…

        Thanks for your reply. I found the issue. The source was not pointing to the exact list. You do mention the source in the article, but I still had it sitting at “all sites in the site collection”. All good now.

    Is there any way to utilize this feature without pointing to a specific list? I.E. could I pull all documents or pages from an entire site collection with the tag SharePoint?

    This is good. Is there a way to show related metadate (enterprise keywords) in a webpart or something on the page?
