With Applications you can see the name, type, family etc. but no description of what the application is ment/used for. When will application description column be available/filled in? Now it is an empty column, so no info at all?
A manual field is in some extent, ok. But why not fill it from the start with some general (available) information. If a specific comp-any wants more detailed information, then they can add or edit it. See e.g. Application Types of family, for some applications the type is filled with "Software", that's obvious and correct but not enough, and for a lot of families it is filled with info I can use. Although it's a pity that you can't edit it.
To my knowledge this is meant as a manual field - for ourselves to fill in if/when needed. If you choose to Edit an application this field is available for entering information into.
