      Description

      At Stanford, we use the Short Description field to pull in the course title (e.g., American History). Many users would prefer to see the course title in the announcement email, rather than just the site title. I don't know if other schools use the short description field the same way, but this would be a nice option to have.

      For example, the first line of our annoucement email notification currently looks like this:

      An announcement has been added in the "F07-HISTORY-101-01" site at Coursework 5 (https://coursework.stanford.edu/portal)

      It would be nice to include the short description field to look like this:

      An announcement has been added in the "F07-HISTORY-101-01 American History" site
      at Coursework 5 (https://coursework.stanford.edu/portal)
