24 bit exporting
You should be able to set the audio bit rate of a .wav file to 24 bit. I’ve been working with a professional audio producer and when I told him you couldn’t do that on Descript, he dismissed as an amateur Unprofessional Piece of software. You gotta do this.
Black Circle On Mouse Cursor
Can we please have the option to remove the black circle that appears around the mouse cursor, on mouse clicks? Our viewers have mentioned they find it distracting.
Timestamp the Add A Comment box on published pages by default
We've had clients assume the Add A Comment box at the bottom right would timestamp their listening position similar to how Dropbox does for audio, and we ended up with a bunch of notes without timestamps.

Video Recording for Support
