Before attempting to edit an app description, it's important to know how permissions affect a user's ability to use this feature:
- App descriptions can be created and edited by collaborators with editor permissions or higher.
- App descriptions are visible to all collaborators.
- App descriptions are visible in shares, embeds, and in Airtable Universe templates.
To add a description to an app, click on the arrow next to the name of the app. From the dropdown menu, pick the "Edit app description" option.
This will bring up a text box where you can enter a description for the app or edit an existing description. When you're ready, click the Save description button.
Once your app has a description, an information icon will appear next to the app name. Mouse over the information icon to get the description.
To edit a description, you can click the information icon and it'll bring up the description text box again. To delete a description, click the information icon and delete all the text in the description box, then save. Doing this will cause the information icon to disappear.
How long can the description be?
The maximum length of an app description is 20,000 characters.
Can I add links or apply text styling like bold or italic?
App descriptions do not support rich text formatting. Note that a link may look like it is clickable, but it is not an active link.
