Add report description to report / report tile
Hi, It would be nice if we could add description to report tile / report e.g. as a popup widnow. This could create a kind "data dictionary"This could be added in Desktop Designer. Many reports is complex, based on some assumptions or logic needs further clarifications. This would help end-users avoid misunderstanding and get get better understanding of data. Thanks
Yes Description for a report I assumed would be a mandatory requirement in most cases as we cant mention all details in report name and the name should be quite small.
Having a report description / Report data dictionary would be very useful.
Agree - especially as Power BI Server / SSRS has a description field for SSRS reports.
We scrape our SSRS server and load this in to our data dictionary

I agree. A more flexible solution would be to be able to add i hyperlink to a document (video, pdf or html describing the report).
Yes, I agree. I think a good idea would be to create a description side panel, like the filter panel in Report view that one can pop out or hide. There would also be a Description panel that one could pop out and hide. This way one doesn't have to use a text box to incorporate a report description that only takes up space in the report.
