Classic SharePoint Term Store Retirement

Microsoft announced the rollout of the modern experience of the global term store for Syntex & SharePoint admin center in November 2021.

To better align with their modernization efforts, Microsoft will start retiring the classic experience of the term store and recommend all users to use the modern term store.

This update will only enhance the user interface of managing and curating terms on the term store. All the enterprise taxonomy created by your organization will continue to exist and will be visible from the modern term store.

Admins will start to see a banner on the classic Term store page. The banner will display the date when the page will be retired and a link to documentation describing where to find all the features in the new admin center. Sample below:

After the retirement date, the classic Term store page will be replaced with a redirect page to the new SharePoint admin center so that any bookmarks continue working. Sample below:
This is expected to start in early September and continue till mid-September for Targeted release customers.  Full rollout is expected to be complete in early October for all customers.
