Hi muzzol,

thanks for your suggestion, we wait for other interested users... It is currently not a priority.

The Dev Team started working on this feature, and gave me the following feedback:

The description field can be edited "as is" on Zimbra 8.x without any change, while it seems that Zimbra 6.x and 7.x are affected by a UI bug that makes the description field non-editable.

More informations will be available soon.

On Zimbra OSE 8.6 (latest patch level):
There is a UI bug when you want to edit description field too:

Go in delegate admin account:
Select an account, right-click-> Edit

Error JavaScript in method

How to fix?:
Uninstall Zextra.

the bug is not present in Zimbra 8.0.9

Hello prod-info,

could you please access the Admin Console in Dev Mode, reproduce the issue and post here any error that appears in your browser's Dev Tools/Javascript Console?

Have a nice day,
the ZeXtras Team
