Is it possible to have multiple template cards on one board?

I am trying to see if I can have two template cards on one board. I have two separate types of projects to manage- and they are just slightly different in scope. Thank you!!!

Yup! You can create multiple template cards on a board and then when you click the template card icon at the bottom of a list there will be a window where you can select which template card you'd like to create a new card from. 

Thank you- I am just noticing that when I edit one Template- it edits the other.... WHAT AM I MISSING? Lol

Really? I am having trouble reproducing that issue on my end on web. Is this on mobile or web that you are experiencing this?

Yes- If I customize one- it edits the other as well. I am on the free version- if that matters. I am trying to create a functional board so my owner can see that it is an efficient way to manage the pipeline and will agree to upgrade! I am just creating a card and then checking to create a template. I have two templates and they mirror each other no matter what I do.

Thanks for your help!

Strange! Being on the free version wouldn't make a difference because card templates are free for all users. Could there be other Power-Ups enabled on the board that are causing interference? 

It might be good to reach out to support who might better be able to diagnose the problem and solution -


Best of luck!

Thank you! I notice that I can edit all of the card besides the Custom Fields- which is the power up I am using... 


Perhaps the Power ups translate to each card? Thank you for all of your help!



I just experimented and you can make multiple templates and have different things on them, like check lists, labels, etc.   BUT if you are using the Custom Fields power up, all custom fields you add appear in all templates.  If you delete a custom field it's removed from all templates/cards for that board.

So far I can't find a way to add multiple custom fields then choose which ones to display in which templates on one board.

I am having this same issue. I created a template card that uses custom fields, and every time I add a new card, the custom fields from the template card transfer over. If I try to delete the custom fields from the new card, it'll delete the fields from the template card. I wish there was a way to have multiple template cards with custom fields on the same board.
