Create and Configure Custom Fields on Android App

Custom fields give structure and help you better organize Items in Item groups on your Board. Each Field represents some entity relevant to the project, or type of content presented on the Board (e.g. Event planning Board can have these Fields: Person responsible, Team, Reviewer, Date, Cost, Status…).

Please note that these are the default names for Fields in this Board Template. Custom field names can be changed in the web app.

To add Custom fields:

  1. Swipe to the right to the last Field in the Item group and tap on +New Field
  2. Choose the Field type to complete the action

If selected field type is Timeline:

  1. Choose the start date and tap Save
  2. Set the start time and tap OK
  3. Choose the end date and tap Save
  4. Set the end time and tap OK
  5. Tap Save to complete the action

After adding a new Field, you can further customize it according to your needs, or configure already existing Fields.
