How to Create Custom Fields in Trello
Trello cards have already so many great built-in features like Checklists, Due Dates, Labels, and so on, but what about checkboxes, dropdown menus and additional information?
You can add all these things and so much more with the Custom Fields Power-Up. From number fields to start/end dates and more, you can take your Trello Boards to the next level.
How to install the Custom Fields Power-Up
Simply go to Menu > Power-Ups > Search "Custom Fields" > Add
Remember that you can always come back later to edit and rearrange them both from the Power-Ups menu and the back of the card.
How to add more Custom Fields
To add additional Custom Fields just click + New Field from the drop-down menu or click over the existing Custom Field if you want to just edit it.
To rearrange your Custom Fields you just have to drag and drop them from the menu.
Custom Field Use Cases
There are endless ways to use Custom Fields to improve your Trello cards.
For example, a great way to use them is to add additional information to your Editorial Calendar getting fields for article prices (handy if you have paid collaborators), article links, additional dates (maybe a start and ending one), and so on.
A personal favorite way of mine is to use Custom Fields in my reading log board, using it to track when I started reading books, the finishing date and the rating (for this one I used the dropdown menu and assigned a color to each number).
Custom Fields are supported on mobile devices
Field data is displayed to the front of Trello cards (this is optional, you can also choose to hide it)
