You would notice 2 blocks allowing you to add the description.

NOTE : Sometimes, the external scripts are not accepted and the code gets erased from the panel. To avoid the cutting out of the HTML codes, kindly enable the option "Disable HTML code cleaning" from "Settings > Advanced > Security" and save it and follow from steps no. 4 again.
