Field Description in Power BI Service

Hi,

 

I've entered the description of a field in Power BI Desktop and published to Power BI Service. I shared this dataset. I would like the consumers to see the fields description in Power BI Service. An analogy will be a data dictionary. Pls advise is there anyway to do so. Thanks!

If the dataset ( updated with fields' description) is shared with  end users. they will be able to see the filed description on hover on the respective fields. 

In Power BI service , the users can only see the filed description on hover while editing the datset/report.
