UPDATE as of October 31, 2019: Over the past week, we’ve been listening to your feedback regarding the rollout of our self-service purchase capabilities for Power Platform products. To those of you who provided your input, thank you! Based on your feedback, we’ve adjusted our approach to better address the needs of both IT admins and end users within organizations. Please check MC193609 in your Message center to see the details.Captain Marcus commented
I have mixed feelings. On one hand, the products in question are a frequent administrative overhead, just so that users can build their own reports ( not sure that Flow should have been included), and I suspect SOME that are complaining are trying to keep their service desk job.
But on the other hand, I agree that the implementation strategy was flawed - and I question why the disable option was not there to begin with. Choice should ALWAYS be there, not after complaining.
""Can I have Visio"?
"No, you don't need it, you can do that in Word."
"Okay I'll buy and expense it, need it to do my job."
Then begins the argument for everything else.. why would you not turn off by default?"
If you SERIOUSLY think that forcing a user to use Word for diagramming - equivalent to using Legos to build something - your culture is screwed up.
Thank you for your suggestion! Just for clarification, I assume that you mean a separate field to store the more elaborate description, and not just more space in the current description field?
Today, you can write descriptions of each line item as part of the description field, such as “Usage fee for having John around for an hour”. But if I understand you correctly, you have a need for something like “John’s services” and then “Lawn mowing” versus “Cleaning the roof”. Is that correctly understood? If so, you might want to create separate prices (lines) for “John cutting the lawn” and “John cleaning the roof” plus an entry for “Usage fee”. Would that make sense?

I would like to add more context to this.
Currently - unless it's just not clear - you cannot have a Product Name and Description show as separate things with more flexibility to the Description field. This is critical in hourly billing charges.
An example would be:
ONSITE WORK (the product)
John for Period of 3/1 to 3/6 (the description)
Where "John" and the two dates are dynamically generated from something else (Ideally). Otherwise just an empty separate box would be fine to manually enter this data.
