Create and manage custom fields

  2. Select Create a field.

  3. Give the field a unique name and select the field type. You can see the complete list reference here.

  4. Select Create.

  5. You can now add an emoji next to the field name in the main view and a description.

Formatting fields that allow options

Some fields allow you to add several options with colors and weighting for each option. Additionally, you can highlight rows and cards with those values.

To format these fields, you can edit or create a new field, and those that have this option available will have under the description the header Option followed by Add weighting.

  1. Click Add option.

  2. Add as many options as you wish. You can tag them with emojis and colors. You’ll see the changes in the view as you go. You can also drag and drop the sorted order of the field options.
