I am using the Field Group module on my user registration form.

Is there any option to add a help text (description) to the whole group, which has 7 input fields?

I want the users to be able to see some description text below the FieldGroup heading.

Go to Content type > Manage fileds > Field Group.

In the filed group you can find settings icon beside.

Clicking on that will give you a field to add description to.

Some field_group formatters do have a description setting, others do not.

If you look at field_group_field_group_formatter_info(), and look at 'instance_settings' for each entry, you see which settings are available for each formatter.

From what I tried, after changing the formatter for a field group, the new settings only appear after saving the entire field_ui form.
