How to change a column type?

The "change column type" feature allows you to change the type of an existing column without having to delete it and start from scratch! 🎉🎉

How does it work?

Click on the arrow located on the right of your column's title. Select "change column type" as below:

A few options will appear. For example, I want to turn my rating column into a numbers column. I will go ahead and select "numbers". Here is what happens:

A new numbers column will be added next to the rating one showing the content of the rating under a number (instead of 💜💜💜 we now have the number 3). 

In case you would like to go back to the original version, simply click on "Go back" as below:

Which columns are available?

Currently, you can turn any of your columns to either a text, a long text or a number column. Additionally, we've just added the ability to turn your Team column into a People column to assign multiple people to a task, without having to assign or create a team : )
