Creating a Tenant (or Web Application) Level lookup field (using Managed Metadata)

Do you find yourself recreating the same lookup tables in different site collections? Often as administrators, we forget the power of the Managed Metadata field in that it is a field that is accessible by all sites in a Tenant (or Web Application).

Join us as we explore ways to use Managed Metadata as a “Tenant-wide” lookup! And while we are on the topic we can open the floor to discuss the other powerful uses of Managed Metadata!
