  • 5. Custom fields

Project Info

Project details

You can find the project name, project key, project type, owner, lead, and estimation type.

Initially, you’ll see three standard status lists: “Todo,” “In Progress,” and “Done.”

Manage List

In the manage list screen, there are three columns:

How to edit list name

Click on that icon, and you can edit the text field.


This column displays the default list names such as Todo, In-progress, and Done. Todo is the starting point, Done is the ending point, and In-progress is in between. If you add any custom field, you’ll see the status as None. None means these fields are internally considered In progress.



You can’t perform any actions to the default list, but you can delete the custom list. Suppose you have 3 items under the custom list, and you have deleted the custom list.
