    First you'll want to consider that any changes applied to field values are processed at PAI. So there's no way to change dynpro fields dynamically on input without first having to press <Enter>.

    Second you had better made a copy of your standard screen and apply your modifications there. In order to call your custommade screen you'll have to alter the entry in T588M for modulpool MP000800, there you can choose to use your screen for all, or depending of the resulting return-value of feature P0008, just for selected employees.

    Third you'll want to change the elementtype of the description from textfield to Input/Output Field, then disable input, set to 2D display, than all you have to do is to set the desired value within the flow-logic in PBO. Don't forget to default, when there's no value yet.
