    I would like to calculate more field and send as a description to Trello. I can add every required field to a new one, but I would like to format the result which needs new paragraphs also. How can I put "enter" into the "calculate field" window?

    Are you referring to the Form Calculation widget? If yes, please check this guide: How to Perform Form Calculation Using a Widget

    I also created a demo form which you can check and test it, here's the URL:

    If you want to clone it, please follow this guide: How to Clone an Existing Form from a URL

    In the demo form, I added a Single Choice field, Number field, and Dropdown field. I also added the Form Calculation widget that will get the total of the fields added to the form. In the Form Calculation widget settings, click the "Add field" you want to calculate. After that, select what operator you want then click the "Save" button. Here's a screen animation guide:

    May I know what do you mean "Enter" in the Calculation field? Please provide more details so we can assist you properly.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know. Thank you.

    I mean as a result I need every single field data to new lines in Trello description, if possible including the formatting options of Trello. The fiealds cintains mostly text.

    I checked the Trello integration to my cloned form and I noticed that the description should match to only one field in your form. So, I'm not sure that it could be possible.

    However, you can do formatting the text in the description in Trello, please see this link:

    Hope that helps.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    If I understood your question correctly, you would like to be able to list submission data one under the other in the description part on your Trello card. However, this is not possible with the current integration features and I'm not sure if this will be implemented even though a feature request is opened for this. 

    When you integrate your from with the Trello, the number of fields that you can match with the Trello is equal to the number of the available options in the Trello card.

    You can not add any other fields except these. In addition to that, the entered data will be seen on the Trello according to this matching. For example, I cloned your form to test on my side and integrated it with Trello. I match card name on Trello with the field named Betöltendő pozíció on your form. I made a test submission and the card name was updated according to my selection in this field.

    When considering your question, it is not possible to match more than a field with the description option. On the other hand, I still escalate this request to our developers. We unfortunately cannot give you any estimates regarding when or if this might get implemented, but as soon as such a feature becomes available, we will make sure to let you know through this support thread.

    No, sorry, no. I would like to put all of the fields data into the Trello's description field, one Jotform field to one line, the next field into the next line. We are using this form for placing orders of posters with the details our client selected in the form (the client seeks colleagues for different job positions, with different timetable, they'd record the department's location and ID). With the form Jotform creates a new card for each project. The Trello's description must contain all the unique data which needs for the processing.

    We need simply all fields into the description (in Trello this is one single field) but each single Jotform field into a new line. If possible including the field's name.
