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.

Sections (which appear as the left navigation options on the card details) are also available to display and hide.

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

NOTE

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

  2. Expand Cards.

  3. Under Card Fields, click Add custom field.
