Hi guys I know how to edit a products description in the frontend, by going to the products page and pressing edit. But, I would like to know how this description:

<div itemprop="description" t-field="product.website_description" class="oe_structure mt16" id="product_full_description"/>

Can be edited in the backend?

I have tried to edit the description in the products -> information tab. But, I am of the impression this is only for internal use.

ermin trevisan I have looked for that option but can't seem to locate it: any idea as to how I find it ?

I have as per ermins suggestion tested this, but it adds the description on this right-hand side near the image via:

<hr t-if="product.description_sale"/>

<div><p t-field="product.description_sale" class="text-muted"/></div>

However I would like the description to appear for the above.

It is not displayed by default, so you need to add the <field name='product_full_description'/>  in your form view.

The field product.description_sale is displayed by default. But I can't find a field "product_full_description" in the backend???

It's the "Description for Quotations" under the Sales tab.
