Show description text when choosing existing document to update.
The Publish Online feature has been really useful for my company--we create brochures for specific clients or potential clients, and provide them access to the electronic version of the brochure.
Most of our brochures are based on a single template, but are altered slightly to meet the needs of the specific client. We always enter a fairly generic document title in the Document Settings fields of the Publish Your Document Online window, because that title is shown at the bottom of the page when the document is accessed by the end user.
We then use the "Description" window to capture specific information about the document--like the name of the client it was personalized for, or whether a specific section has been edited from the standard, etc. for this particular document. This means that I have a large number of documents with the same name hosted on Publish Online, but they are all slightly different.
The problem comes when I want to update a specific one of the hosted documents. In the Publish Your Document Online window, when you choose Update Existing Document, you are asked to select an existing document to update, and are presented with a dropdown window listing all of the documents hosted on Publish Online. However, this window does not show the description information, so there is no way for me to differentiate between any of the documents that have the same name.
Without this information, in the majority of situations, I simply cannot use the "Update Existing Document" feature. Instead, I have to republish the edited document, and then navigate to the Publish Online Dashboard (which does show the descriptions) and delete the existing version of the document that I just updated.
This is inefficient, makes the publication analytics inaccurate, and changes the URL of the final document. If our client bookmarked the URL in order to return to the document at a later date, they will now get an error message when they try to follow that bookmark.
I have attached a jpg that shows the information that I can see when I access the dropdown menu in the "Update Existing Document" window. I have attached another image showing my Publish Online Dashboard including the document titles and descriptions.
