I generally type out a key or legend in the report description to provide users a definitions for any colors or icons I've included within the report or to better clarify what the data in the report represents.  I check the box within the report builder to "show" report description, however I'm noticing that the report description does not display when then my report is emailed.  I have the reports set up on subscriptions so I'm very interested in displaying the description automatically without having to first email it to myself only to type in the description and then forward it out to the users.  Is there a way to do this?  Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Thank you,
