  1.  Create Term in the Term Store (be mindful if the Term Set is open or closed – it can impact the import)
  2. Add new property (or alter existing property if appropriate) in User Profile Service > Add New Property, and complete the following:
    • Name and Display Name

    • Add AD property to be mapped
    • Any other settings as required
    • Save
  3. Start Full Profile Synchronisation
  4. Check completed work
