custom fields - how do you format dropdowns?

Hello, how do you set up the drop-down feature in the custom field power up?  Thanks

Thanks for the reply. To try to add to the dropdown list, I was using commas, semi-colons, everything except - hitting return on the keyboard!  So, so silly.  :-)

You can use the Custom Fields button on the card as mentioned above to select + New field, then Dropdown. After adding options, you can click the gray tile to select a different color for each option.

Do you know if the ability to change the name of the button has been removed?  I followed a tutorial on YouTube from 2017 and seems that was once a feature, yet I can't seem to find it now.  Meaning, changing 'custom field' to say, "Other details".  

 

Thanks

Rosa

Hi Rosa

Assuming you've added it as a power-up to your board:

Just open custom fields → edit → +new fields → Type: dropdown

:)

Hi Rosa, I get same problem. Why can't I fill the dropdown field with a list?

Did you solve this issue?

Hi @Armelle C. , If I'm following your question, select custom field, choose 'drop down', enter text and hit return.  That's how you create the list.
