Get assignable value from taxonomy field

Returns assignable value from taxonomy field in this format: "WSSID;#VAL|GUID".

This is necessary because SharePoint workflow uses different formats to get and set managed metadata field values. When retrieving a managed metadata field value, SharePoint returns the format “VAL|GUID”. When setting a value, the format "WSSID;#VAL|GUID" is instead required, where WSSID is the ID of the associated row in the hidden taxonomy list.

Activity supports managed metadata fields that accept multiple values.

Note: If you want to update managed metadata fields that accept multiple values, you should use [TaxonomyFielName]_0 column.
