display custom field in backlog issues list

In a kanban backlog, how do I get a custom field to display in the list of issues? - I got it in the detail view side pane, but want to see it in the list

Go to your Kanban board and click on the "Board" button on the top-right corner > Configure.

Then, click on the option "Card layout" on the left side.

Select your custom field in the dropdown menu and click on the Add button.

Hi Ignacio

Not quite what I was after - I have already done that.

I'm after showing the custom field in teh backlog list e.g. here

I confirm there's a backlog section on Card Layout section for showing there up to 3 extra fields, including custom ones.

This worked for me yesterday, but it forced them onto a second row. Not terrible, but I wondered if it was possible to use the space left in the original first row in the middle?

That would be really cool. The additional rows screw up the visualization a log. For something like Storypoints the way it looks like in a Scrum Board is 10 times more appealing.
