Customizable Terminology for Proxy Vote

The term "proxy vote" is not intuitive, which I believe is the reason some folks end up not using it. I would like to change it for "Voting on behalf of a client".

    We have the exact same usecase as this one for our main ideas portal. Furthermore, we are trying to further adopt Aha! across other teams for other usecases, and we have a scenario where if we could rename proxy vote to be something else it would 100% tick all the boxes for transferring this usecase over. Without being able to do that there is resistance as the term proxy vote is not easily understood.

    Most importantly the ideas portal, but to have consistency, both.

    Thank you for reaching out! Is the need to rename it primarily for ideas portals or also for Aha! on an ideas details page?

Ability to customize terminology for Proxy votes

Currently, I can not change the terminology in the Portal for Proxy votes. I changed all the other instances of "votes" to "likes" This has led to an inconsistency in user-facing terms.
