Add fields to cards and Kanban board filtering
Posted on 22 May 2015
Fields such as Title and Assigned to are generally wanted on every card, but it’s often nice to bring a bit more information to cards so you can take action on them without having to open them for more details. We turned on the ability to add additional fields to cards on the Kanban board. For example, you could add Severity and Priority fields to Bug cards. This new setting is per team and work item type, and it allows for up to 10 additional fields to be added. You can also filter the Kanban board. Type any text you like in the filter box, and the board automatically hides all cards that do not match the text entered. Filtering works on all data displayed on the cards—including the Title, ID, and Assigned to tags, and any added fields. For more information, see Add fields to cards, board filtering – Apr 27.
