Create and Configure Custom Fields on iOS 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.

  1. Choose Board
  2. Tap the + button on right of your Item Group (if you don’t see the button, swipe left across the screen)
