#60 Show Tool Description in Tools Administration Interface


The Tools page in the admin area of a project displays a growing number of useful tools for projects. As this number increases, it is not always easy to tell what a tool does - especially with non-self-explanatory tool names such as Support (Does it link to SF site support? Does it give me an opportunity to point out support for my project? Does it somehow try to find support for the project by itself?).

My wish for a feature would be to add a tool description to the popup window that is displayed upon clicking on one of the tools on the Tools page. One or two short sentences would suffice, possibly enhanced with a link to a more extensive documentation page later on.
