Text properties are impractical for storing details about a card, because its contents are shown directly on the card on the board. This makes it very difficult to store medium to large amounts of text, without heavily cluttering the kanban board, making it impractical to use Cards to store information about the task.
This prevents users from storing information about a task inside a card, which is a use case commonly used by me and the teams I’ve worked with in the past, and one that many others might expect as storing details about tasks is something Trello (Popular kanban alternative) seems to be designed around.
If this were resolved, then checklists could be used in lieu of the checklist item, because of the issue described in #2810, but because of this issue there’s currently no way to keep any larger-than-tiny amount of extra text/info inside a card, without making the board a cluttered mess.
