custom fields on every card?

Hello, I added custom fields to one of my boards and only want to use them all on one of my lists; however, every card I make on all the lists on my board have the custom fields now.

I saw a blog post of someone's daily habits and goals tracker and the customer fields were only on one list...her daily journal.

Can I get them off my other lists without deleting them 1 by 1?

Thanks so much for any help provided!

Hi Lisa, 

No, you can't get them off other lists, that's by design.

When you enable the Custom Fields Power-Up and create custom fields, they will be available on all cards on the boards.

When you select "show field on front of card" when creating a new custom field, they are displayed on the front - if they carry a value. Otherwise, they are only visible on the back of the card - whether empty or not.

Hope this helps.

Yes, that helps. Thank you! :)

@Lisa Maghrak the reason that you saw the fields on some cards and not others in that example post is because you weren't a member of the board. If you copy the board, you'll see the fields appear on every card. On the public board you see the fields only on cards where they have a value set.
