There should be a way to write and see a Description on an item when you open that up, without having to add an item view. Coming from Asana and Wrike, this seems like a basic feature to me and I’m surprised it doesn’t exist in Monday. Our tasks require a detailed description for the assignees (creative brief) and right now we have to break that out into multiple columns instead, which they have to open and click to see the information. It’s not very user-friendly.
Updates is not a viable alternative because we can’t edit those as a team if some of the task specs need to change.
We have tried adding item view cards as well, but again run into usability issues and the need for too many clicks and manual processes.
Ideally the description would also include rich text editing, like I have seen in other competitors.
