I have a glossary with 150 terms, with more to come. My current setup is OK, but I'm looking around to see if there's a better way. What do you think of my options? Anything better to suggest?
Current situation: one enormous table
In my enormous table, each term has a definition plus other information. The Definition cell includes an anchor, which lets me make each link in the See Also column jump straight to the row that defines the related term.
Limitations of the huge single table:
Example of my one enormous four-column table:
Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) is a data-centre focused technology platform from Cisco that allows the network fabric to be managed as a whole rather than each individual device.
Within the Internet, an autonomous system (AS) is a collection of connected Internet Protocol (IP) routing prefixes
Cisco has a range of aggregation services routers (ASRs). These are typically used at the internet edge for enterprise networks and service providers.
Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform for building, deploying and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-managed data centres.
We have a glossary of over 6000 terms and growing, each on a separate page (one per definition). It is open to our company of almost 8000 employees. As a side note, it also comes built-in with a prominent search field on the landing page and the as-you-type hits are just from that space. And an option we like (not required): a built-in Index (entries are sorted and can be paged through A, B, C, pages which display hyperlinked, alphabetized titles of entries which some find useful to be able to scan what's in there - i.e. they may not think of searching but like to discover by browsing).
It was done under contract with a noted Atlassian Expert and I understand will soon be on the Marketplace. If curious to hear more (please understand, I'm an Atlassian customer and don't work for the third-party company either; willing to discuss/screenshare what our solution looks like), feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have had many employees contribute to our glossary by the way - it's by far our most contributed-to Confluence space out of the few hundred we have.
