Add description to Sharepoint list

Copper Contributor

Hello

I would like to add a description to my Sharepoint list. So that I can give guidelines to those who edit the list. It can be at one of the places of the screenshots bellow.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Thank you in advance

Louis

@louisquinet for the list form, click New and in the top right of the screen click the pen & paer icon in the top right then select Configure layout:

Then in the Headser section of the panel on the right add the following JSON, changing the text to the description of your list.

 

{
    "elmType": "div",
    "attributes": {
        "class": "ms-fontColor-themePrimary"
    },
    "txtContent": "This is where your list description goes in the header JSON"
}

But in the list itself it's not possible to enter any text between the list title and the list items.
