I am trying to set custom fields for a SINGLE card, but unfortunately the custom fields then appear across all cards. I then tried to create a template, but still, the custom fields appear across all cards.
Is there any work-around or fix for this?
@tanya.haegele there's no way to have custom fields for an individual card, but have you thought about just putting the values in the description like:
Name 2: Value 2
You can use markdown to format it so that it looks kind of separate
To redefine custom fields as card-specific would probably be a nightmare for the development team. Impossible to keep backward compatibility.
An alternative solution would be to allow for custom fields to be hidden/visible on a per-list or per-card basis.
I have several boards where cards in one list (or in a group of lists) need a certain set of custom fields, while cards in another list need other fields.
I like this alternative solution - This would allow for a list of custom fields that can be selected/de-selected for each card, and applied as needed.
We are in a situation where we need a dozen or more custom fields, but each field should only on one one or two cards per board.
This would be an amazing option... I use boards for a lot of different things (including inventory control and communication with other departments), and not having the ability to toggle the fields is really frustrating. I realize I could put things in the description, but that basically defeats the purpose of having custom fields at all, as far as I am concerned.
