[arin-discuss] Bringing back IP resource Request Templates

Having used ARIN online a couple of times now to apply for address
space for clients I do have a couple of comments.  What I miss mostly
about the email templates for resource requests are the following

1- I can't fill out part of the template and save it to send later as
I gather all the necessary info.
2- I can't output the partially filled out template to send to my
client to verify that it's what they want me to send and get their
feedback.  Or have it saved on ARIN online for my client to go in and
look or add whatever they want to add.

It would also be super helpful to have a text template I could send
them with all the questions.  For me requesting resources for a client
is often a information gathering operation from several parts of the
company and putting it all together to request what they need.

1&2 were very easy with the email templates.  If those were possible
with ARIN online then I wouldn't care that much about resource
requests via email.

Also I have found that for some reason ARIN online doesn't tell me
when there is an update to one of my open tickets via email so I have
to keep going there to see if there is any update on the ticket.
Maybe that's a configuration option?  I haven't had time to look

If any of you are interested in having template functionality restored, ARIN needs to know that. If not, likely this suggestion is soon to be closed without any action and templates will forever fade into history.
