Is there a way to display project description on the main page?


I am creating new project in JIRA and would like to have project description/summary view on the main project view.

Now, if I want to view the details of the project, I have to go to settings -> Projects -> chose the project and only then I could see what this project is about. Please let me know how to do it on the main page?

It is so strange that you can add a project description in Jira, but not display it.. it seems that you can only see the description in 'project settings'.

what are we missing?

I believe you should be able to see Project descriptions on the default Projects page (list).

You can do it with the help of a simple add-on. Not sure if there is one out there already for this.

whats the addon name

Same question here

Did anyone find out the name of the add-on? 

He didn't there was an add-on, he just said it could be done with one.  It would be helpful.
