custom field doesn't display on card

I created a custom field called Reviewer that allows a list of users to be assigned. It's working fine in the issue screen, but I want the reviewer to appear on the card in the sprint view so we can easily see who the reviewer is for an issue. I tried to add my custom field to the card using the card layout screen in the board settings but it doesn't show up. I can see other fields that I add in the same way, but the reviewer field doesn't display at all.

Is Reviewer a user-picker field? Are you saying that you find the “reviewer“ field in the list of options and select it but nothing appears?

Yes and yes. Reviewer is a user-picker field that allows multiple people to be selected. And yes, I find the reviewer field in the list of options but when I add it nothing appears.

And the field definitely contains a value? Is it remotely possible that there’s more than one reviewer custom field. Just grasping at straws at this point. I don’t really have a user pick her custom field on my test project but I checked with various other user paper feels like reporter assignee etc. and they all work. Can you check and see if other field show up such as reporter?

Yes, the field definitely contains a value, and yes, reporter shows up.

Strange, after adding reporter, the reviewer field started showing up! Not sure what's up with that, but it appears to be working now. Yay.
