Ask Me about not saving under user profiles

  Date: Nov 01    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 899

I receive an email from a user stating that whenever he tries and add terms
to his " ask me about" on his profile and hit save, it doesn't save it. I went
ahead and tried it on my profile, system user profile, it doesn't work. I double
checked the properties under The user service app, and the user properties, and
everything looks normal.

any ideas? suggestions as to where to look and what to do?

The AskMeAbout user profile field uses a managed metadata term set for
storing its values. So there could be several issues.

1 ) If a managed metadata service app isn't available you won't be able to
edit the field.

2) if a specific term set has been chosen the user may not have permission
to add anything to the term set. If so an admin must pre-populate values
for the user to pick from or they won't be able to edit the field

3) if a specific term set hasn't been chosen but permissions on the default
term store have been modified the user may not have the ability to enter new
items. See #2

Those are the things I would check first.

I have checked our service apps, and found out that
the web application was set to the wrong service up for metadata, I updated
that, and everything works fine!
