Being able to quickly identify cards is really important, especially as the feature list gets really long. Being able to add:
- Custom fields
- Customized display (I can't keep track of the initiative colors -- would be much easier to choose an icon or display a text)
- Visual indicators (a preview of the attachment, or a picture/mockup)
Would make it much easier to identify cards. I think Trello has a great example of this -- customizable icons and attachment previews draw attention to exactly the card you want to see.
Allow cards to be customized on the Feature Board and Feature Workflow board.
We just released a new tool which allows you to customize your feature cards. In a single glance, you can now easily identify key feature information on your feature cards including assignee, goal and initiative names, due dates and even custom fields.
This is available through the Customize feature card icon on the feature boar, which allows you to personalize your own view. You can also standardize your default card views across products and product lines via Settings -> Product -> Configure.
