Add a description to a folder

Add a description to a folder so If you were to use the "my public assets" folder for instance, you can briefly tell the users what the folder is about.

Is this a feature that is coming?  We are migrating some content from DSpace to Starter and would like to maintain the description of the collection.  Also, looking at the Getting Started with Starter: How to Create a New Folder pdf it shows being able to add a folder but I don't see that when I click the add a folder button.  Thanks!

Hi Megan,

Yes, that feature is now available. For an existing folder if you right click on it you have the option to edit, this allows you to change the title and add a description. Both of these are then used in the public portal.

The Description field should also be available when adding a new folder.
