Very strange thing is happening. I've been asked to change the description of the custom field, which I did. However, it still appears on the "create" screen with an old description. And no, I don't have 2 different custom fields with the same name.
Thank you all. Appreciate your advise. But I agree that it's very inconsistent and confusing for us to change this in the general config "Issues" section, and the have to do it in each Field Config, as needed. In my opinion, general change should be propagated throughout the system.
I have the same problem. Regardless if I edit the description in Custom Fields or Field configuration, the description I entered is not showing at all. I've read all related questions but can't seem to find the solution. Hope you can help out.
Edit: please ignore this post, found the problem
It is always better to create a new question in the Community so that more people will see it. :-)
But let's see what we can do here. What is the field that you are changing the description for? And are their multiple field configurations in the field configuration scheme?
Thanks for your reply. Noted, next time I will create a new question.
I think I may have found the problem, although, I found my descriptions.
Usually the descriptions were shown in or under the field but now they are hidden behind the 'i' the information icon. I rather would have it straight forward visible for the viewers/users.
Oh btw, there were 2 field configuration schemes, I deleted one of them. And just one field configuration.
