I have a list of items that contain terms related to software subsystems and requirements. Here is my list:

  • Archiving
  • Automation
  • Collaboration
  • Customization
  • Performance
  • Publication
  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Reliability
  • Security
  • Standards Compliance
  • User Interface

I need to give the list itself a title. The list is going to be used within a project management software to allow categorization of feature requests. More than one item can be selected. A colleague of mine suggested the title Tags (seems like a IDGAF answer) another suggested Modality. Anyone have any thoughts?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I'm not sure this question will help the wider internet. Sorry, Nick, I think you request is too localised for Stack Exchange. – Matt E. Эллен Feb 24 '12 at 23:42

How about simply 'categories'? Or... classes?

Since you state the purpose is to allow categorization, categories makes sense to me. Since it's for features, maybe you want to qualify and call them "feature categories." – Ron Pihlgren Feb 24 '12 at 22:44
