Allow "How We'll Collaborate" title to be editable and/or default to "Description"

We have eight years of project descriptions which now each look like a mistake because they appear under the heading “How We’ll Collaborate” instead of “Description” as they’d been.

Even the current Asana Guide (Project Overview • Asana) refers to this field as “Description:”

I don’t think it’s reasonable to repurpose a long-existing, commonly-used, prominent field without recourse or warning.

Any approach to make it editable, or selectable from choices that include something more like before (like “Description”), or just defaulted with something more like Description would resolve this problem.

Thanks,

Thanks for creating this thread, @lpb! I’ll share your feedback with the team so we can consider it in future updates!

I completely agree. Love the new overview tab, but ‘How to Collaborate’ is not relevant to us. We all know how we collaborate! What teams DO need to know at a glance is the vision and context behind a project so we are all aligned and not talking at cross-purposes. Making the ‘How to Collaborate’ title editable will mean that the project description in that field actually makes sense.
Hiding the project description half way down the page in the resource section, with only the first line showing, is not helpful. As a software development company, we don’t get a briefing document from clients (but I can see why this would be useful for digital agencies with a ‘production-line’ process).
