    Hi PJ, I apologize for the delayed reply here. Description fields can't show up on Reports - could content from Custom Fields work?

    I'd be interested in this functionality as well, currently we use request forms to allow users to submit work requests, it would be nice to export those requests in report format for easier review, but without the description it's not particularly helpful.

    This would be most helpful.ย  We currently use reports and dashboards in department meetings to give project updates and it would make it much easier if the description of those projects was available in the layout.

    We all agree in my team! We have a LOT of project notes, with project info changing all the time that affects tasks. Really need to report so we have quick glance at the overview. Yes you could use a custom field, but that is only going to work for a short sentence!๐Ÿ™‚

    Not being able to show the Description Field in Reports is simply - I am sorry - but stupid.ย  Can we get a reason why this is not a basic and obvious functionality.ย

    Hey @Rick, thanks for reaching out!

    Descriptions are often large and have heavy formatting, which is why it is only accessible in the Task View.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.ย

    +1, what good is a report if you can't report on the field most used.
