When you copy a card from a board to another, you have the option do copy members, labels and comments.
If the custom fields Power-up is enabled, is there a way to also have the option to copy or not the custom fields?
In some cases it is great to copy custom fields and there values but sometimes I would like to just copy the card without the custum fields.
There is not currently a way to prevent cards with Custom Fields from replicating those fields after being moved to a new board. I'll definitely let our team know thats something that you'd be interested in seeing!
Sorry to jump in, but I'd like to add something here that I found out quite recently.
Custom Fields are limited to 50 per board.
If you move cards from one board to another it will only hold 50.
Board A has 35 Custom Fields
Board B has 35 Custom Fields
You move a card from Board B to Board A - some of those Custom Fields are going to disappear.
I've encountered this recently and had to completely change how I use Trello to try and minimise the number of CFs that I use. I lost a lot of information that I didn't even realise I'd lost doing this. While I know this might not be achievable for everyone, I thought I should point this out. Personally, I have changed a lot of mine to labels rather than CFs. This also means it's a lot easier to filter because you can filter by labels much easier!
Just thought I'd add my 2 cents!
Edit: I should say that it's ok if the CFs are the same, but if you have 1 CF for "Date" and another for "Date:" - these are different and will be treated as such. I've tried to reduce the CFs on my boards, and make them as unified as I can - but blimey that took some doing!
Me too please! We have automation which creates card copies from multiple boards and due to the issue noted by Esme above https://community.atlassian.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/3555478 , we have reached the 50 limit.
either raising the 50 limit, or being able to choose not to copy certain (or all) custom fields between cards would be great.
Three years later, still waiting for this to happen. We need to choose which custom fields to copy, or not to copy them at all!!
Has there been any update on this topic, current behaviour when copying a card seems to be to create a custom field on the destination board if the cusotm field in the card being copied contains data.
If I wanted the custom fields on the destination board, I would create them myself.
I have an issue with this too - we have a rule where cards automatically get copied to other boards at certain stages of the process - I've managed to automatically delete the data not needed to be copied but can't delete the fields. I've notice if you copy a card manually, not copying the fields IS an option - why can't this happen when copied via a rule?
