Provide a ‘suggestion’ box at the main menu that will let people suggest terms. This is useful when you are using this as the repository for standard abbreviations and acronyms. It would need an email associated with it. Would be nice to have this as a configuration item so you could choose to utilize it or not. Some enterprises may have a process that would not support ‘suggestions’ (i.e., all the terms must come in through the data modeling or report development step).

We have already lodged a similar enhancement request, though implemented slightly differently. We simply asked for the Feedback button to be available at all times, not just when viewing a term.

I like the idea, especially if it was automatically its own special "category" or "holding area" where people could even directly comment on the meaning, even if they might only be standard users.

Our workaround is to publish Candidate terms and to educate our people about the meaning of various statuses (Standard, Accepted, Candidate or Deprecated).

They've worked out that they can use Feedback from any term to suggest other terms. Once they've done that once, they have the standard email address!

Here's another enhancement idea: when feedback is being sent have a check box "send email to me too".
