How to make a structure description show below the structure title

I would like to show the structure description or a message shown below the structure title in order to communicate things like 'Please do this or please don't do that'. It will also be used to explain what the structure is about if the title isn't sufficient to do so.

Hello Anjali,

You can achieve a similar solution here by using a Memo in the structure - you can create a Memo at the top of the structure and use it as a container for the structure itself, i.e. it will act as a top-level folder-like parent item for the structure's content. And you can add in this Memo's description any text you want; the users will just need to click on the Memo itself and its details(including the added description) will appear in the right panel. You can find more about Memos in our wiki:

Alternatively, you can also use the Notes column in the structure where you can add any text for any item in the structure. So you can add a description there somewhere at the top of the structure at the root level where the structure's name is displayed or next to any other fitting item.

Please feel free to reach out to us via for proper support in the future.

Thanks. Reading this response, it sounded like it is necessary to use the memo as a container for structure and that all issues will be child of that. This would not be a good approach for me since I didn't want the nesting way to change. In practice, This is not required. I created a memo at the same level as the other top level issues in the structure and did not need to change any automation. Solution worked well for my need.


One minor bug : 

When In the grid+ details view and clicking on the memo, there is some unaligned UI and icon bordering.

Thank you, I'm glad to hear you managed to find a fitting solution with Memo!
As for the UI-related issue - this definitely doesn't look normal. Can you please check if this behavior is also present:
- in another browser;
- in the incognito mode.

Potentially, this can be a compatibility problem between some installed apps or browser extensions, or it can be caused by something else. But for us to be able to say anything for certain, we would need to investigate it properly and analyze some technical data from your instance. To avoid sharing it here, please submit a request at our portal and we'll go from there.
