Use fields

Who can use this feature?

🔐 Only workspace editors can configure and set fields.

⭐️ On the free plan, you can create up to 3 fields. On the Standard plan, you can create an unlimited number of fields.

Fields allow you to track additional information about items. You can create fields for labels, dates, owners, or anything else that’s important to your workflow. Fields also make it easy to filter relevant content, allowing you to single out the items marked with a certain field – for example, high-priority tasks.

There are four types of fields you can create:

  • Single select: Creates a drop-down list of options that can be selected one at a time.

  • Multiple select: Creates a drop-down list that allows you to select multiple options.

  • Date: Allows you to set a date, such as a deadline.

  • Team member: Allows you to assign an item to a member of your team, sending them a notification.

In the board view, fields can be a great way to give you a quick overview of all your items. The first field of every type will be shown on the card, and the full list of fields will be visible above the title of an open item.

Note: If you want a different field to be shown in the board view, change the order of fields in the workspace settings using drag-and-drop and move the field you want to be shown to the top of the list.
