Custom Fields to only one card?

Is there a way to add a custom field to only one card on a board?

We have some projects where an element might have 3 deliverables. So those deliverables would have different due dates. However, I don't necessarily want multiple due dates listed on other cards on that board where there is only one deliverable.

Any luck finding a solution/workaround to this? I also would like to have custom fields but specific for each card, not the entire board. Perhaps someone has come up with something new.

Unfortunately no. The answer above pretty much says there's no work around.

Also wondering if there has been anything implemented as a work around for this, perhaps with the new integrations with Butler?

For example, I have a Team board, which has all kinds of info on it (on different cards, to make it easier to find specific things) about our team. Each Team member has a list titled after them (with their name), and on their list, there are cards like "Contact Info", "Personality Assessments", "Fun Stuff", etc. I wanted custom fields for the Contact Info card, such as "Email" and "Phone", but those fields don't need to be on the other cards. Only the Contact Info cards.

I watched a webinar about the new Butler integrations on April 4, 2019. So I know there's been some changes. Was wondering if anyone knows whether or not the updates would provide a work-around using Butler.

Just looked through Butler more carefully, and looks like an option for this is still not available. I submitted a feature request.

The only answer seems to be creating a separate board with that one card you want to have the custom fields in and then linking that card into the board you want.

Right now, if you create a custom field it will be available for all cards on the board. You can however chose not to actually add a date for other cards on that board. However there is currently not an option to suppress the fields on a specific card - sorry.

Are you planning to add this feature? It would be extremely useful to be able to have different cards structures for different task requests that come into our trello board.

I have the same issue. I want a custom field to appear only on some cards, not all. Keeping blank custom fields only makes it look cluttered. It would be nice to have this feature.

I'm following up on this. Is there any plan to add this? Locking all the custom fields for all cards inside a board is really inconvenient.

It would be great if we could create templates each with their own set of custom fields.

This would be a great feature to add! I'm in HR and I'm trying to keep track of items like Garnishments, Unemployment notices, and employment verifications.

These items don't need to have their own boards created BUT they do need different cards. All three of these items have vastly different drop-down menus and it looks like a hot mess right now.

@Torben any update on this, please?

This is pretty stupid.  Who would have this kind of limitation

I'm following up on this. I work with a company that is beginning to use this for CRM and ALL MY CLIENTS hate that this isn't a thing yet. Scrolling all the way past useless custom fields is so aggravating! It would be nice to be able to tuck them away when you don't want to see them.... Even if they are in use honestly!

Having the same issue! Would be perfect to have specific fields on each card template.
