    Hi there, yes this is now possible. In a custom layout you can now make fields required -- including the description field. This article explains how to set this up in more detail. Thanks!

    So did this ship for real now?  If not, can you change the status back?

    Thanks for the comment. This idea status was incorrectly updated. We are actively working on this feature and hope to have it ready for you soon.
