Enforce Description Formatting Rules Edited

Blaine Hafner I'm New Here Mar 27, 2019

I currently work for an organization, that stores user stories within the "Acceptance Criteria" due to issues in the past with over-formatting & exporting JIRA based spreadsheets.  We have displayed interest in shifting our user stories back to the description field, but would like to ensure we don't encounter the same problem as we did in the past.

Is there a best practice to enforce a formatting policy on the description field?

We're currently concerned as we're shifting from a local instance of JIRA to the cloud, and we're unsure how long we may be able to revert to the old view, before JIRA disables that functionality.  As it is currently formatted, the Acceptance Criteria in mobile is tucked away on the right side of the screen, and cannot be incorporated into the Description column, which would maximize visibility.
