Create new Custom Fields

You can create new Custom Fields from the Sidebar, List view, and Table view. When you create a new Custom Field, it's automatically added to the Workspace, Space, Folder, or List where the view is located.

Create new Custom Fields from the Sidebar

To create new Custom Fields for specific Spaces, Folders, and Lists from the Sidebar:
  1. Hover over a Space, Folder, or List.
  2. Click the ellipsis ... icon.
  3. Click settings.
  4. Click Custom Fields to open the Custom Field Manager.
    Screenshot highlighting the Custom Fields option in a List's settings.
  5. In the upper-right corner, click Create new field.
  6. Name the field and select the field type. 
  7. Customize the Custom Field. Details vary by Custom Field type.
  8. Click Create.

The new Custom Field is automatically added to all tasks in the Space, Folder, or List.

Each Custom Field created at the Space, Folder, or List level must be unique in its group. For example, if you create a Custom Field for a Folder, you can't create the same Custom Field with the same title in a List that is nested inside the Folder.
