Custom card fields give you unlimited possibilities. Using text fields, teams and managers can add additional details that are visible in backlogs, and searchable in filters and reports. When you have more than one team, you have more than one way of estimating. With Favro's custom numeric card fields, teams can estimate in points, hours, days, or whatever other format suits them. 

While the default Favro cards are very flexible, sometimes you need more. By opening a card and clicking Add field you can create your own custom field for calculating costs, linking out, adding contact details, and much more. You can add as many custom fields as you want, containing any and all information you need. 

While text fields are simple single-line text input fields, numerical fields can have any unit added to it, and they can aggregate (in backlogs and boards) in a number of ways:

  • Sum
  • Average
  • Minimum
  • Maximum

When using numerical fields, these of course work together with burndowns and other features as they have the same logic as estimation fields.

Now that your cards are set up exactly as you want them, you might want to review the different ways you can customize your work boards.
