PDMworks Project Description

When I first bulk loaded all of our SW files into PDMworks, I simply created new projects and made the description name the same as the project name (application number). Obviously I couldn't go through thousands of application files to get specific.

Now I want to change the description field on certain projects and I'm wondering... Is the description field a name specific field? In other words, if project XXX's description is "test fixture", does that mean that NO OTHER project in the whole vault can use "test fixture" as its description? Must each description say something different?
I was thinking of using the customer name in this field. Obviously some customers have more than one application/part number.
