WAB: Change Layer List 'Description' option

Hello everyone,

 

I am using Web AppBuilder Developers Edition and want to change the Layer List "Description" option. When you run an app, when you click on the drop down beside a layer in the Layer List you are given the option to view the layer's 'Description'. This automatically opens the layer's REST endpoint URL.

 

I am wondering if there is a way to change the 'Description' option to show a custom URL website I can create myself, or even just the layer's "Description" value - you can edit this in an mxd by opening the layer's properties, under the General Tab, and then republishing the mxd to a Map Service that AGOL (and thus WAB) uses.
