An application I'm documenting has a tab labeled "object properties". Over
the past couple of years, the developer has added a number of object
properties that apply only for a limited number of customers in unique
situations. There are now so many of these additional properties that
they're crowding the "real" properties.
We want to move these limited-use properties to another tab. Question is,
what do we call that new tab? I prefer to stay away from "Advanced"
properties, because I don't want users getting interested and poking around
in there, getting themselves in trouble. "Custom" properties doesn't quite
fit either, although that's the best alternate I have right now. Given a
choice, I'd call them PITA options, because they really are a pain in...
well, you know. But our Marketing people won't go for that. I need a name
that identifies these properties without encouraging people to try them!
Any suggestions for a name for this new tab/collection of properties? Please
copy me directly, as I'm on digest. Thanks.
