[Archivesspace_Users_Group] EAD Import issues with Geo Subjects

Hi Maure,

The subjects we already have in Archives Space are split into terms and those that are coming from the EAD import are not being split into Scotland - Edinburgh and result in one term. So they do not link to existing subjects but create duplicates with one term instead of multiples. We are on version 1.1.2 in test.

Hi Claire,
Could you clarify what you mean by the names are not matching? Like is the subject not coming over as "Scotland -- Edinburgh" or it is and that isn't how you want it structured?

Our EAD import jobs are not matching up with geographic subjects as the subjects are saved as hierarchical terms e.g. Scotland - Edinburgh so the names are not matching. How can we reference these geo subjects in the EAD so they do match up on import and we don't get duplicates? Sorry if I'm missing something obvious.
