What Sets Amazing Fields Apart
I built and refined Amazing Fields based upon feedback from users. I think this has set Amazing Fields apart from other Trello powerups.
Project Activity: Amazing Fields is under active development. It was not released and then forgotten about. There are frequent updates providing new fixes and features based upon user feedback. See the Amazing Fields Changelog.
Cost: I want as many people to use Amazing Fields as possible. It is freely available for use on as many boards and workspaces as you need. See the Supporters section below for more details.
Support: My goal is to provide the best support of any Trello powerup. The Amazing Fields documentation site has a wide range of articles with more added all the time. You can also contact me through the support widget in the powerup or email directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Security and Data Protection: Your data is safe and secure on the Trello trusted servers. I have no remote access to your boards or data.
All the options you always wanted to customize Trello but didn’t know to ask
As a long time users of Trello, I wanted to break out of the limits of the standard workflow and limited data options. I wanted all the features I have grown to expect from other tools like formulas, customized formatting, conditional styling, selectable icons, easy exports, and even progress bars. I built this powerup to meet my needs and yours as well.
It includes everything you could want:
- Field display options - show on front or back with optional labels and width
- Hide Fields - show only the fields that are needed for each card
- Conditional coloring - change the badge color based upon field values
- Reorder fields - easily reorder fields live for full control
- Permissions - restrict view and edit by user type
- Text fields - collect key information that you need for each card.
- Numbers - track metrics like story points, counts, or any other numbers
- Checkbox - support tracking any on/off style values
- Dates - collect key dates and times to show on the cards
- Dropdown - create a list of preset values and let users choose one or multiple
- Formulas - calculate the value of fields from other field values
- Card References - allow cards reference cards on other boards
- Per card visibility - choose which fields are shown per card
- Number formatting - currency, scientific, percents, accounting and more
- Date formatting - choose everything about how you want to show the date
- Progress bars - use multiple styles to track progress
- Multi-select dropdowns - select multiple items from a dropdown
- Checkbox styles - select from several types of checkboxes
- Constraints - constrain input to specific format templates
- Board Exporting - export all your board and field data to load in a spreadsheet
- Text Constraints - require text fields to match patterns (email, URL, custom…)
- Advanced editors - go beyond the basic field editors
- Custom Fields - ability to integrate with Trello custom fields for automation
- Board Backups - automatically create backups of boards and data
- And more… - send new ideas

Take a look at these templates to see what is possible with Amazing Fields. Click on “Create board from template” after you open the links and then click on the “Fields” board button to see the Amazing Fields settings.
- Feature Examples
- Usage Examples
There are a few short steps to get started using the Amazing Fields PowerUp.
See the Amazing Fields docs site for a full walk-thru:
Calculated Fields 🖥️
Create formulas just like you do in a spreadsheet to calculate field values from each other. Supports 100+ of the most common spreadsheet functions.
Choose Fields to Show Per Card
Make every card just the way you want it by choosing which fields to show. When you copy a card or use a card template, it keeps track of the fields you want to show.
Progress Bars 📊
Have you ever wanted to see progress towards a goal on your cards? Configure the style, width, range and more. There is support for custom progress bars so you can create anything you imagine.
You can even setup a progress bar to “link” to the checklists on your card to show a styled progress bar as you make progress on your tasks.
Date Formatting 📅
Choose exactly how you want dates to show on cards. Dates and times are show in internationalized formats with over 40 variations supported. Let me know if there is another option that you need.
Number Formatting 🧮
Select from any combination of number formatting. All numbers are displayed in the correct international format, and you can change the number of decimal places in the number.
Currency Support 💰
Choose to use any of 150+ currency types from around the world.
Accounting Format 🧾
Supports styling in accounting format to display negative numbers clearly for accountants on your team.
Customized Checkboxes ☑️
No more being restricted to a single boring check style. Select from a wide range of options. Every aspect of how you show it is up to you to choose. Let me know if there are more styles or options I can add to support your use case.
Create a dropdown to choose from a list of choices along with colors to use to decorate the choices. Very useful for things like card tags, workflow stages, categories, ratings, etc. You can select one item or multiple items.
Field Display Options 🕵️
You can choose where and how you want your fields to be displayed. Choose if they should show on the front, the back, or both. Also choose if the field should be labeled or stand alone.
Tabbed Sections and Headers
Organize fields using section headers and tabs.
Rule Based Coloring 🎨
Don’t use the same boring colors for your fields. Use formatting rules to set the color based on field values. You can color progress bars based upon percentage completed, highlight text fields based upon content, monitor key dates, and highlight key checkbox values. Let me know if you need a new rule and I will add it for you.
Text Template Constraints
Setup templates to restrict text input to specific formats (eg. email, phone numbers, URLs, time durations, part numbers, ticket id, etc). Amazing Fields comes with preset options and lets you define your own as needed.
Need a new preset, let me know.
Card references let you connect cards across boards. For example have your project cards reference customer cards or project team members. This lets you build up your boards as databases of cards that can connect in any way you need.
No more ugly editors. Immediately see any conditional formatting and visually distinguish the fields. When you change a value on a progress bar, see it immediately. If you click on a checkbox you see the custom styled icons.
Even adjust the layout of editors. Set how wide the editors should be and change the way they are labeled.
Customize Permissions Per Field
Want to hide some fields from non-administrators or restrict who can edit or view a field? I built on top of the existing Trello permissions model to let you determine who view/edit each field. You can require a specific user type or user. This enables a whole new class of advanced workflows for sharing data across your boards.
Exporting Card Data 📋
Amazing Fields allows you to export all the cards on the board including their field data to a CSV file. This can be loaded in Excel, Google Sheets, or other spreadsheet software for further processing and analysis of your data. You can use this to export both Amazing Fields data or simply to export your normal card data.
Configure automated backups for your board and all data. Keep everything safe and secure within your Trello account for easy disaster recovery and archival.
Custom Field Integration 🤖
As you use fields more, you may want to integrate them into core Trello capabilities like automations, filtering, reporting, and the Trello mobile or integrate with tools like Zapier or other powerups. Powerups can’t directly interface with these capabilities so Amazing Fields lets you link a field to a custom field. Anytime you change the Amazing Field content it updates the custom field and similarly when you change the value of the custom field it updates the Amazing Field. This all happens automatically for you behind the scenes.
There are also browser extensions provided to hide the linked custom fields and keep your UI amazingly clean.
I hope Amazing Fields does everything you need, but I know there are some use cases where you may need a different tool.
The primary limitation people ask about is that some advanced capabilities like automations and third-party integrations require the use of a paid Trello account. Trello charges for those features and Amazing Fields does not try to circumvent that. Instead you need to get a Trello paid plan and link your Amazing Fields to a custom field.
I am glad that you found Amazing Fields, but I know there are other powerups you may be considering for adding data to your cards.
Trello Custom Fields: Trello paid plans have support for adding Custom Fields. These allow you to add basic data to your cards and support automations. In comparison, Amazing Fields is more focused on advanced features like formulas, formatting, presentation, and customizing fields.
Smart Fields: The Smart Fields power up allows adding fields to cards. It’s primary focus on on calculations. In comparison, Amazing Fields not only supports formulas, but also improved data entry, customization, and presentation of field data.
Amazing Fields is freely available for use by as many users, boards, and workspaces as you need. There are no limits on it’s use. Once fields are configured and setup they can be used by as many people as you would like on as many boards and workspaces as you need.
I ask that users who feel they are getting value out of Amazing Fields consider becoming a supporter to help me cover the cost of maintenance and hosting the powerup. Most users do not become supporters, but I greatly appreciate the ones that are. For ~$4/month it helps me ensure the quality of this powerup.
As a way to thank supporters, there are a small set of power user capabilities that require a supporter to configure. The features are still completely free for use by any number of users, boards, and workspaces.
For more details, see this support article: Amazing Fields Supporters
If you become a supporter and don’t find the additional capabilities useful, just email email@example.com for a no-questions-asked refund. I want users to enjoy Amazing Fields. If it isn’t working well for you just let me know.
To get help or suggest a new features, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I love feedback and will get back to you as quickly as possible.
