I'm not looking for a technical term, but a more polite way of saying that the user's request is a lower priority and we may or may not get to it once higher priority issues are cleared out. The company owner and top management will see these statuses, so they shouldn't be slang.
For purposes of understanding what I am looking for, here are some other "statuses" I am using (but can be changed to match the tone of this status if necessary):
- Being Investigated
- Being Worked
- Ready for Testing
If necessary, we may end up with multiple statuses, one which indicates that it should be worked soon, and one or more others which indicate that it may be awhile or it may never actually get done.
I've looked at various websites and considered terms like
- queued (promises completion, and may or may not be easily known to Americans)
- waiting for resources (true, but very technical)
- parked (to much slang)
- pending (pending what?)
But none of them really convey the politeness of the possibility that we may or may not get to this in the near future.
Feel free to ask for any clarifications, or to edit this to make it more appropriate for this site (I usually posted on Stack Overflow, but since I don't want a technical term, I thought all of you would do a better job of it).
UPDATE: added the adjective "short" to the title because that is what I really want.
