    I added this to the Broadcom Ideation section, but there's nothing for Rally under categories, so I don't know if it will fall into a crack.

    We have several groups of individuals, that need to add comments/discussions to all projects/teams. The only way to do this currently is to make them an Editor of some/all projects so that they can comment. This is proving to be unnecessary as they don't need to edit anything - and adding Editor invites unwanted mistakes that could be disastrous.

    Recommend that we consider a "Commenter" role that allows you to do nothing but add comments. Even better, allow the Read-Only role, to be read-only everywhere except for Discussions, where they are permitted to add comments.

    Hi Greg,

    Thanks for taking the time to share ideas.  Rally is a bit unique in that we have what we call "in product feedback".  On most pages you'll see a megaphone icon in the top right corner.  If you click that, you can enter your feedback and the product managers will receive that and add the idea to their list.

    I have submitted my Feedback within Rally to support Greg's suggestion.  I prefer the second option (allow Viewer to add a Discussion).  I wouldn't want to complicate permissions by adding a Commenter role.
