Set up Custom Fields

With our Custom Fields feature, you can create a completely unique task field to set a value, budget, or really anything for a task! Here's how to set them up for a Folder:

  1. Click the ellipses ... next to the Folder you're setting up Custom Fields for

  2. Select More from the Folder Settings menu then select Custom Fields

  3. Select a field from the Manage Custom Fields modal, enter the field name and set field options in the Create field modal. Or click Use an existing field at the bottom of the Manage Custom Fields modal, and choose a field that's already being used in your Workspace

* Note that on the FreeForever Plan Teams are limited to 100 uses of Custom Fields.

Add Folder Colors & Labels

Add colors to your Folders for better insight into the status of projects. Use RAG tracking to determine if a project is At Risk (Red), Behind (Amber) or On Track (Green).

Clicking Add/edit colors will allow you to add labels to the colors, applying them to the entire location!

Any Folder color you use will automatically show in the Portfolio widget on your Dashboard. Sort this widget by Folder color to easily see how projects are moving and keep your organization on track!
