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.

Yes, we have the same need, and the exact same use cases. We use Confluence, Jira, and other collaboration platforms. We also use Microsoft 365, but our company hasn’t approved the integrations yet.

Even when they are integrated, I still see a lot of value in being able to list the links to key assets and references for a board right at the top.
