Feature Request: Custom Fields


We use Trello to organize jobs. In the Custom Fields Power Up, it gives options to enter in numbers, text, etc. However, there is no way to use a custom field to tally up numbers in a field. For example, at each job we walk through a house/hotel/etc. and count the number of each product that will be needed. It is inconvenient to have to tap each field and change the number each time it goes up. Is there a custom field that has this ability to tally/add or subtract by simply tapping the - or + sign next to it? If not, who can I contact to possibly get that added to the PowerUp? Like this but with custom named fields:

Unfortunately it's still not what I need because the job goes so quickly that there needs to be an option to add or subtract to the number in the field without having to click and scroll to find a number. I need a way to tally without scrolling and/or having to re enter a new number each room they walk into. Like I said, it's a fairly simple thing. Is there someone I can talk to about having that added?

You should check out smart fields powerup and also dashcards. 

Sorry, I think you misunderstood. I am looking for something much more simple. I looked over smart fields and dash cards, and neither is what I am looking for. I need to see if there is a way that I can do a custom field that allows me to add or subtract from a number that I enter simply by tapping the - or + without having to tap on the number and change it each time I want to change the quantity. Like this but with custom field names:


You are 100% right. I didn’t read it carefully enough. Sorry I don’t think we have anything like that.

@Oakley Anderson you could use a dropdown with numbers 1 - 20 in there (or whatever range you need)
