Don't want placeholder text in custom field

dbateman I'm New Here Feb 11, 2021

My company uses a lot of custom fields on our cards. Is there a way to eliminate the placeholder text in the boxes? It would be a lot more obvious when a custom field has been filled out by staff if the placeholder text was not there.
