Customize your list by adding or removing fields

Select which fields to display in your list

All users with access to the project can select which fields to display in their list.

Every team has different needs, so you may want to add or remove fields so only the most important information is displayed in your list. You can select other fields you’d like to include in your list view. However, you’ll always see the item’s type, key, and summary.

The fields you choose to display in your list will only be visible to you. All users with access to the project can select their own fields to display.

To customize the fields you see in your list:

  1. Select plus icon at the top right of your list. A drop-down menu will appear.

  2. Use the checkboxes to display and hide fields from your list.

Jira custom fields

Only project admins can set up custom fields that can be used in your list view.

For other custom fields that exist in Jira more broadly; Jira Work Management currently only supports a limited set of custom field types at the moment.

In addition to the default fields that exist in the list view, you can create other fields you’d like to include in your list view. Learn more about creating custom fields. These are usually fields that you’ll need to configure and enable in your Jira settings. Learn more about how to configure a custom field.

You can currently add:

  • Date picker

  • Date time picker

  • Number field

  • Select field (single select)

  • Select field (multiple select)

  • Text field (single line)

  • Text fields (multi-line)

  • URL field

  • User picker (single user)

More custom fields will be added over time to give you and your team more flexibility in viewing specific information in your list.
