Online website for users to test new ArcGIS Features

    Would you like the opportunity to review NEW features in ArcGIS and tell ESRI what you think of them BEFORE they're imposed on you in the next release?

     

    Let's have an online website or webinars where users can view mock-ups and/or test new ArcGIS Features before release to beta.  I think it could save hours of headaches later on.

     

    Why am I suggesting this?  Read below:
    I agree that the redesigned table display is the worst new feature in ArcGIS 10.
    See these ideas on Ideas.arcgis.com for details:

    Allow attribute table tab to open in a new window in ArcGIS 10
    Add "Maximize Button" to attribute table

     

    How did this happen?  Did ESRI test or focus-group this with users to see if they LIKED IT?

     

    Please give users the opportunity to review major new changes before they are released.  It would give us the opportunity to weed out the problem features before they are inflicted on us.
