The Project Description module allows users to add a description to Projects that will be displayed on tasks. This is useful for keeping project-specific notes that you may need when working on a task in that project.

Getting Started

First things first, we want to install the module! Navigate to the Apps application and search for 'Project Description'. When ready, click the Install button.
