I am unable to actually filter by any of this. If I enter the filtering menu, i cannot find or select any of the fields in order to filter.
Found the solution and a small bug in implementation. When Trello says you can filter on custom fields, they are right. But the filter needs to be applied in a very specific place and not the default search bar of board. You need to go to Board Menu>Filter Cards and here is a search bar that will work on custom fields.
Don't know if this was intended or not, but it works for now.
you can filter for any text on your boards in custom fields.
For example if you have a custom field mentioning "text". You can filter for text using the textfield displayed and the cards containing text in custom fields will be shown both on the web, desktop as well as in iOS via the filter feature on a board (magnifying glass icon).
if that does not work for you, please reach out with an example to trello.com/contact so we can check it out.
