Requesting addition of a Sandbox Commit verification prompt

We are on Planning Analytics 2.0.8 on a Windows 2012 R2 server. We have customers coming in through the tm1web. Have customers asking if there is a way to enable a Verify prompt after user clicks the Commit button in a Sandbox and before it actually commits. Have users who are working in there for long periods of time and sometimes accidentally click on Commit instead of Recalculate, then have to go in and back out the changes that were made. Sometimes the changes that need backing out are extensive.

Why is it useful?
Who would benefit from this IDEA? This could benefit our customers, give them peace of mind to not accidently click on Commit, and also on our technical team that sometimes has to assist in backing out the data that was erroneously committed.
How should it work?

This seems like it could be fairly simple to implement. Just a pop-up prompt for the user when they click on Commit from the Sandbox, that asks "Are you sure you want to commit this data to production" or something along those lines.

Idea Priority Medium
Priority Justification Medium because it would be really useful, but is not a work stoppage.
