In cards there's an easy way to assign members working on it. But sometimes it is not clear who's the ultimate responsible for the task and that can lead to problems. Is there a way to designate or mark who's the leader of a card among the members?

What I'm looking for is to assign members and then selecting just one as the "card leader".

Hi Augusto

For this, I would suggest making use of either labels, with a label showing who the leader of the card is, or Custom Fields power up where you can designate the leader of a card.  But as it stands, members can be assigned to a card as just members.

Hi Matthew,

Thanks for the response. 

I find the label solution not really efficient, but I'll take it. Right now I'm using the calendar power-up, so I can't even try the Custom Fields' one. I should include that my organization is no making steady earnings so I can't compromise a fixed outcome just yet. This means that the Business Class is sadly still out of the picture.

I have to ask, Is Atlassian considering including this tipe of elements as a built-in feature? I've seen a lot of good advises on other questions that would make Trello (even) more powerful as a business tool.

Hi @Matthew N, do you know if there has been any more movement on a solution for this? 

Or could you point me to somewhere where people discuss this problem?
We often want to assign a card to multiple people, but we want to be able to assign who is ultimately the project leader / who is responsible for that card.
