We're trying to update the product description for over 8000 products. There's currently no way to bulk update this field so we have to do everything manually. It seems silly that there's a customs description column but not a column for the product description.  


Hey there @elbiv


I absolutely see why this would be a desirable column! I'll move this over to our idea section so that other community members can vote on this for potential implementation in the future! 🙂

Great to hear! We'll probably still be updating the field by the time it gets implemented!

Any further word on this? 

Perhaps more of my concern, any update to the request to make the "Description" field accessible to packing slips?

Here's a screenshot of our use case: case:

We completely eliminated a separate product info sheet from every box by including the info on our packing slip. Unfortunately, we had to manually add the formatted information to each product description field.
