is it possible to delete or edit a custom field in Trello?

I tried creating a custom field in Trello and want to delete it (or edit it to a different type of field). I'm not finding a way to do that. Am I stuck with it or is there something I'm missing?

Hi Shelly,

Sorry for any confusion! You can delete/edit custom fields from the card back. Please open the card and find the "Custom Fields" button to the right-hand side. Click on it and click on the Custom Field you'd like to edit. A pop-up window will appear, and you'll be able to click on the "Delete Field" link at the bottom.

Hope that helps!

Clicking on a custom field in the does not bring up a pop-up. As far as I can tell, you're stuck with custom fields after they've been defined.

I don't get the option to edit my custom fields.

This is what I see.


How can I delete these custom fields?

My experience is the same as Matt's and Gary's — there is no such option. And I thought I was adding it to one card, only to discover that it's now on all my new cards and I can't remove it. WTH?
