Box Folder Description

Hi,

 

I am not able to edit or add new Folder Descriptions (I hover over the description and a pencil does not appear) Can you please explain how it is done now? On the old Box I was able to add new in properties, and to edit I was able to hover over the description. 

 

Thank you,

Kisha

After more searching, I found this: https://community.box.com/t5/Box-Troubleshooting-Forum/Editing-folder-description-in-new-web-app/m-p...

 

Not sure why it feels difficult to find the description but it was for me.  good luck!

Hi,

 

Yes - On the right of the screen. Underneath New and Upload, you will see "Sharing" and "Details" Tick the Details tab then tick anywhere over the current description details. You can edit from there (and it automatically saves)

It works. But in the former version I could see the description under the folders one level higher in all headlines directly.
Now I have to go on the "I"
I found the former listing better

Just wanted to also voice my support for adding the Folder Description back to the tagline.  That is a very useful for my company's structure.
