Robust Board Description Field: support for HTML and/or Hyperlinks

Story: We would like to add key information related to a project board at the top of the page which links to other tools our team uses. We’d like to format this information to highlight certain items and also allow for clickable links.

The description field under the board title seems like an appropriate section/field that has greater potential. We could use that area/field to link to other key information related to the project that exist in other systems.

  • We are forced to maintain another area in Confluence to hold some simple information that we want hold in, with nice formatting and clickable links.

  • We tried experimenting with a new LINK column in the board, but it takes up too much precious space for in the entire board view for only a couple of links we want at the top of the project.
