I can set a description when I first save a map but I can't find a way to edit that description after, in the web app or the mobile app. Is this possible and I'm just not finding it?

    Its definitely possible on the web! You can change the description of an existing map by selecting Collaborate in the upper part of the left side bar and then entering in/editing your description in the Comments field.

    Currently you can't edit the description on the mobile app.

    I guess that no longer becomes an option once you have shared a map? When I click collaborate on a map I have created a shareable link I just get what you see in the attached screenshot. I can edit the description on other maps I haven't shared.

    You should still be able to change comments as well as anything else in the Sharing dialog box even after creating a shareable link. I checked your account and you should still be able to see the whole dialog, as shown in the screenshot below. What account provider and email are you logging in with?

    Yeah that's strange. I'm signed in with [email blocked] which is an account admin as well. I just tried it in a different browser (firefox) and it works there. Something to do with Chrome I guess. It'll probably get fixed by clearing cache/cookies but I'd rather not do that at the moment.

    It is possible that your login is stale. Have you tried logging out and then logging back in using Chrome and seeing if that resolves the issue?

    Yep, logging out and back in again fixed it, thanks!
