I am creating a document to list "Complaints and Compliments" by customers/suppliers/staff/anyone, I want a column heading preferably a single word do describe the person making the compliment or complaint. The column will contain their name.

  • Does "customer" not meet your needs? – Davo Mar 15 '19 at 12:04
  • I should have expanded that it could be anyone. I have edited the post. – Naz Mar 15 '19 at 12:10
  • Complainer? (and then the person being complained about it complainee) – Smock Mar 15 '19 at 12:55
  • @Smock But what if the person made a compliment? – Naz Mar 15 '19 at 12:57
  • oh I see - so one word to cover whether they complain OR compliment. Commenter ? Ugh.. – Smock Mar 15 '19 at 13:57

Try originator. From Collins:

countable noun [usu with poss]

The originator of something such as an idea or scheme is the person who first thought of it or began it.

...the originator of the theory of relativity.
