I have added a custom field using the text option however the box to enter the text is tiny.  Is there a way to expand it?

There is no long text custom field option, unfortunately :( it would be cool to see some other field types released in the feature, so if this one is important to you, I'd reach out to Trello directly with a feature request. In the meantime, the description of the card would be the place to go to enter anything that's longer than a few words.

Hi @stephen_weller 👋

Welcome to the Community! Unfortunately the text box is pre-sized by Trello and is unable to be altered. The Trello article Suvradip points to will help walk you through custom fields in a bit more detail for future use but does not include the capabilities you seek.

I hope this helps but if you have any other questions just ask away 😃

All the best,


Hi @stephen_weller ,

Could you please check this trello guide - and a field name can be up to 25 characters ?

Let me know if that helps.
