The descriptions in our database include all needed information about a product and match manufacturer recommendations. This is great for most circumstances, but sometimes you may want special content for a product block. Or, you may want the product description to be unique to anything else out there. Because customization is so important, we’ve made doing this a simple procedure.

3. Click the Products tab to the right of the category where the product you need to update is located

NOTE: You may need to expand a category to make the Products tab visible to the right

4. Find the product you need to customize, then click on the Customize tab under the Legend/Desc column
