Customize which fields are displayed on a card

The highlighted information on this page refers to functionality not yet generally available. It is available only in the Preview Sandbox environment.


This feature is available only through the early feature opt-in for Workfront Boards. For details, see Early feature opt-in for Adobe Workfront Boards.

By default, all available fields are displayed on a card, both in the the full view when the card is open, and in the condensed card view on the board. You can customize which fields are displayed by:

  • Disabling a field so it is not displayed in either view
  • Hiding a field on the condensed card view

If a field contains a value and you disable the field, the value is retained if you enable the field again later.

You can also display custom fields that were previously created. You can’t design and create new custom fields within a board.


Any field customizations you make only apply to the board you are working in.
