What does it mean when it's a chelating ligand?

This means that there is a complex containing a ligand that forms a ring of atoms including the central metal atom. In other words, more than one bond is formed between the metal ion and the ligand.

A chelate is a complex with at least one ligand that forms a ring of atoms with the central metal atom in it.

A chelating ligand is a ligand that can bind to a metal ion at multiple sites. A non-chelating ligand only binds to the metal ion at one site.

A chelating ligand is when a ligand has more than one bond with the metal atom.
