Add notes or description to deployment process step

When working with the deployment process I sometimes find that I have to do something in a step that might not be standard, for example setting a temporary user on the "create app pool" step. It would then be great to be able to ad a note to the step describing what is done and why.

    This would be very helpful especially when you want to keep your step names short and have descriptive notes for the step. Granted, notes can become stale over time if they're not maintained but might be worth it in this situation.

    Agreed, this would be super useful, I just temporarily disabled (removed it from a channel) one of our steps (encrypting a section in the config) because it was causing errors. It would be great to be able to add a note explaining why the step is disabled so someone else doesn't add it back in.

    I agree with this. It shouldn't be difficult to implement, it's just an extra field and can use the same description fields as other screens.

    Rather than hard coding in some text I may just provide a link to documentation explaining that step i.e. in Confluence.
