Hello Andreas and welcome to Atlassian Community!
Currently, it's not possible to add a description on next-gen projects.
Based on your question, I've created a feature request suggesting the implementation of this ability:
Please, click on vote and watch to receive updates about the feature.
@Angélica Luz could you put some pressure on this?
We just decided to move from Clubhouse.io to Jira after I thought I had confirmed that Jira had all the basic features (plus a lot more) - but not being able to add a description to a project in the "next gen" view is pretty lame, making me (as COO) starting to question the migration and considering moving back.
My name is Jillian and I'm a Product Manager at Atlassian, working on the project settings within Jira's next-gen projects.
I'm so sorry that the inability to add a description to your next-gen projects is frustrating for your team. Next-gen projects are a work in progress and we're adding new features and functionality regularly! Feature requests like these go a long way in helping us prioritise.
We haven't received much feedback about this topic, so it's not currently on our roadmap. I promise I'll keep a close eye on this and post any updates as they come.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any other feedback on next-gen projects!
Thanks so much,
