Glossary - Acronyms, Phrase, definition
To improve glossary functionality I propose the following.
1. There should be a data type called acronym as part of the glossary.
This should be case sensitive. This would allow for the organization to set its own acronyms and thus ensure effective use.
2. allow for users to have mulitple instances of an acronym. POC- Proof of concept, point of contact, . Allowing the process writer to designate a definition.
3. If there are dominant definitions within Promapp instances, for example APQC, SAP, BPM, these could be part of a larger glossary function to help share concepts across multiple organizations.

I love the suggestion above, I'd probably add that a 'Context' text field could help set the scene of how the term should be interpreted, or if the owner/expert could select the applicable entries from the matching glossary items.

I hope this is still being taken under consideration, we just had an issue today trying to add the acronym for "IT" - you can imagine how well that went
Agreed. Glossary customization would be very helpful.

Thanks for the suggestion. We don't have this on our roadmap right now but we'll monitor interest from other clients.
For the more dominant definitions Lean Tags could be used, which have the added benefit of reporting, so users can see each process the Tag is used in.
