Who defines whether or not a data element is PII?
It would be useful if that was indicated in the index and not only when you expand the item.
Can we access the data dictionary via the REST APi to present it to others.
Would be good to make the data dictionary available to others where required. To be able to show where the data has come from (other systems)
Would love to hear more about this idea. Do you have time tomorrow to stop by the UX lab to talk about it? We are right next to the knowledge bar.
It would be useful to be able to drill down into the data produced in a report.
Overall a very nice and thoroughly documented data set.
Love the entity relation diagrams and the explanation for all fields.
Soms remarks I have after the first few minutes:

Would it be possible to allow users / admins to customise the monitor report snapshots at the top of the Reports Page, with custom created reports, or different set of reports? Consequently, is it possible for users to create their own reports based on data they select?
What about individuals (students or staff) who want to exercise the right to opt-out of data sharing?
I like the Search Feature, autofill is nice, speed is superb (probably because all data is client side?)
My first use of this tool would be very BBLearn database scheme oriented, because there we know where which data is located. I would like to be able to search for the name of bb_bb60 data fields to see where it is mapped.
When exploring the data dictionary, as a report developer / analyst / etc, it would be nice to see an interactive Entity Relationship Diagram which shows the "term" in context of the entity - maybe even flash / highlight the term if the ERD is busy - then allow a zoom in / out to show more or less entities, and navigate between relationships to other tables / entities.
If the ERD can be made to be interactive, then hover-over terms to show basic info of terms/tables, and option to navigate to term's full info page. Could also extend to table / entity to show list of terms/fields for a specific entity.
It would be great if the fields in the data dictionary are grouped by table.
Data dictionary: Provide a way to group fields by entities, maybe a hierarchical visualization of the dictionary.
Access control to reports. Not all users would have access to all data.
Provide a [community driven?] catalog of common reports that admins can "instantiate" into the Reports dashboard.
Being able to use existing, read only, reports as templates to create new customized ones.

My browser font size is set to 20, this is causing some elements to appear in the wrong position:

You can reproduce (in chrome) via Settings > Customise fonts and set to anything greater than 16.
Some thoughts on the reports view:
