Folder Descriptions becomee "invisible" by shown Folders Reading View

  • 1.  Folder Descriptions becomee "invisible" by shown Folders Reading View

    Posted 08-23-2021 06:22
    When creating a Folder with items I am using the folder description to describe the content of the folder or give some hint.
    However, this description beomes kind of "invisible" to the reader.
    When selecting the folder in Explorer to display all items in reading view my description does not become visible.
    You have to select "View details" next to Folder on top of reading view. I suppose nobody is doing that.
    As a solution we can put a text item on top of the items which will be displayed top of reading view and give up using Folder Descriptions.

    Is there a way to make the Folder Descriptions more visible within reading view of items?
    Same problem also appears for Components or Set of Requirements.

    Hello Thomas,

    Thank you for reaching out. In order to see the folder description, you'd need to select a higher level in the structure that contains the folder.

    Selecting the Monitoring folder does not show the folder's fields, just the items within.

    By selecting the set above the folder, you see folder Description field.

    Hello Amanda,

    thanks a lot for your support.

    That is exactly my problem:
    "Selecting the Monitoring folder does not show the folder's fields, just the items within."

    The solution to select the above folder is not that much helpful when there are a lot of items/folders before the folder you are interested in.

    My wish would be:
    "Selecting the Monitoring folder show the folder's fields and the items within."

    Would it become a feature wish?
