  1. Thanks for sharing Marc,
    There is also a hidden field that you can read the values from, slightly easier to extract the terms as all the values are stored in the value attribute, separated by a semicolon. There is no title attribute on it so you can’t use as clean of selector as you show, but if you have only one MMF on a form, something like this should do the trick input[type=’hidden’][class^=’ms-taxonomy’]
    For invalid values it adds a label with an empty guid (zeros only).

      Good point. The value for that hidden input is “Newton Centre|977e6e98-2515-4426-92eb-6bbbb45eab20;hanover|00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000” in my example above. It’s a little messier to parse out, but as you point out, it contains everything.

  2. Marc, could you elaborate on why you recommend to join SPYam? At this point, I don’t see a clear added value, compared to LinkedIn groups for example. And a major drawback is that the network is private, so threads are not indexed by search engines and this limits their reach.

      SPYam seems to have the critical mass that I don’t see in any of the LinkedIn groups, which are simply very fragmented. I’m a member of about 10 of the LinkedIn groups, and the content just doesn’t have the value I see in SPYam.

      The other clear benefit is that there are Microsoft Product Group people who are active in SPYam, which I also don’t see in any of the LinkedIn groups.

      • Good points, thanks Marc. It’s true that a social network is about the community it draws, not just the features it offers, and the involvement from Joel Oleson and Microsoft people has to count for something!
