The Custom Common Field enables you to customize the information for task in the Card View by adding the custom fields in the card.

It gives you the flexibility to customize the attributes of the card. Depending on the requirement the customization can be done at the Admin level as well as at the Board level.

Using the Custom Common Field feature, you can perform following configuration related to custom fields:

  1. At an Admin level, add a custom field which is common across all card types. You can also set the field type, input method, icon, and other details for that Custom Common Field.
  2. At a board level, take a call whether you want to show that custom field on the Card View. So, you have a choice of showing that field in one board, and hiding in another
