Add Competitors, Business Model, Personas and Vision to be terms which can be renamed under 'Terminology'.

Competitors is not hugely relevant for the large areas of the product organisation currently working with. However, being able to re-use competitors and it's charting capability to represent some strategically important to them is. For example, it could be used to emphasise geography penetration, and create a profile per geography and show the level of adoption, maturity for each geography.


Business Model, and allowing it's name to be changed is just a terminology request as opposed to any other additional functionality. Same for Personas and Vision.

    This would also be helpful for us. We do use the Competitors and Personas and find it very useful but we would also like to have the freedom to add additional areas and update terminology for use with something else (i.e. storing vendor or partner information for our company or research findings as mentioned in another comment ... and much more!)

    We would want to use the competitor section as it is for strategic customer positioning...

    Any updates on this?

    This would be really valuable for me as well. Specifically, I'm looking for a good way to represent customer groups. The existing persona functionality would work really well, but without a rename it would potentially add a lot of confusion.

    I can only eccho this feedback. Working with enterprise organizations, "Personas" isn't really accurate for research findings - as we merely cater to business processes for instance. Making these titles editable is of course one option, or a different name such as "Reseach Findings" could be another. Best regards, Malene from Tradeshift

    We would like to be able to clone one of these areas and customize the name, so we aren't limited to one choice - the default (competitors, biz model, personas, vision) or a re-named version..

Ability to customize "Persona" field terminology

we refer to 'personas' as 'communities' - aligning more terminology will make the tool more relevant

Customize Names at Third Level Down (e.g. Vision, Business Model, etc.)

This is useful because we all approach product development using different frameworks (e.g. LSU, JTBG, etc.), and need to customize the terminology throughout. Thx

Make "Vision" part of the modifiable terminology

I can have a custom term even for "goal" but amazingly enough not for the highly political term "Vision". For us, Vision is reserved for the executive management, but I can make a "strategic claim", and I need have this reflected in the tool
