There are two product descriptions: short and long. Both descriptions are used in the Overview (or Landing page) as part of an introduction to the product.

​​ Long description

A long product description should summarize the product and the value or benefits it brings customers. It is comprised of two main assertions: 1) what the product does, and 2) how this benefits the customer. This description is used in the Overview (or Landing page) as an introduction to the product.

Intent: To show what a customer could use this product for. It should not be trying to sell like marketing content, but you can refer to marketing statements as they give good summaries and descriptions. Often times, you can use a the same or similar and change the tone to be more product appropriate.
