Using JIRA Cloud, how do I get the Quick Filter descriptions to display?

I have used server based JIRA instances in the past. Usually, if you hoover your mouse over a quick filter you can see the description that allows users to get additional information about a quick filter before they choose that. 

Is there a similar option in the Cloud platform?

Hey Aaron,

There is a similar option on the Cloud Platform.

Just make sure your description is accurate on the Quick Filters in the Board Settings and that should show up when a user hovers their mouse over the filter.

Hope this helps,
