Change the Workflow Description on Save and Menu Option

It would be great to have the ability to change the Workflow Description as needed. Currently, you can only change the Workflow Description when you first save a new workflow or when you publish a workflow. It would be extremely useful to be able to change the Workflow Description on every save or have a menu option on the Automate page to update it.

    Hi Eric,

    Thank you very much for posting your feedback.

    At this time, we will not be adding this request to the near-term backlog, as we are focused on other highly requested features.

    However, there is a less than ideal work around available today:

    • When you're ready to save your workflow, click "Save as" (expand Save menu).

    • The workflow name will have "- Copy" appended - delete this.

    • Add the description you'd like to add, then click Save.

    I understand this does require some extra, quick steps, but it will achieve what you are looking for.
