Use Custom Fields for software teams

  • Updated
Custom Fields enable and improve workflow Automations, reporting, knowledge sharing, and more by adding important information to any project or initiative and providing product managers with relevant information at a glance.

We recommend the following Custom Field types for software teams:

  • People (eg. designer, front-end engineer, backend engineer)
  • Priority
  • Severity 
  • Impact
  • Reproducibility 
  • MRR
  • Root cause
