Update Demand/Capacity Terminology to eliminate confusion

Currently, throughout Aha! and in the documentation the term Capacity is used loosely to imply both Capacity or Demand. This is creating confusion amongst our users and we request that Aha! clarifies the terminology to distinguish between demand and capacity. For example, in the Aha! Roadmaps | Capacity planning for individuals | Aha! support page, reference is made to “Estimate capacity by initiative” and “Estimate capacity by release”, but they seem to mean two different things, in that for Initiatives, you don’t estimate capacity, but rater the demand (capacity needed), but for releases, it is truly intended for the release capacity. It would much clearer to the users if you change the term “Capacity” to demand, when an object, like initiatives and features, has a demand on a team, and the size of the demand it is needed from the team. Making this change will simplify the understanding of the demand/capacity concepts and make it easier to use.
