Starting today, we’re giving you the ability to add more detail to better distinguish between the Fields on your roadmaps—and throughout your account.
Similar to how Item descriptions add context and color to the Items they're associated with, Field descriptions give you that same level of detail when it comes to creating and managing your Fields.
If you’ve ever found yourself trying to distinguish between two similar Field names, Field descriptions are here to take the guesswork out of the process. By adding quick descriptions to your Fields, you’ll be better able to understand the purpose and context of those Fields at a glance.
This release is particularly handy if you're using more than one Field with the same name. Let's say you have two Fields for "Owner," one that's a Roadmap Field and one that's an Account Field. Now, you'll be able to distinguish between the two when choosing them from a drop-down by hovering over them to see which description is different.
Here are a few more quick facts about this release:
- Field descriptions apply to both Roadmap and Account Fields, so you’ll be able to use them on any type of Field.
- Any Field member can add and update the Field description. And if you aren’t a member of a particular Field, you can still see the Field description when you hover over the field or open up the associated Field card.
