🗓 Additional item types (pre-defined)

Reading through here and seeing a lot of things that I like specifically the ability to have custom templates would be great, came from SafeInCloud and there are a few features that I really liked that have been lost:

Custom Templates, Able to remove stock templates, Custom icons, custom field types (expiry, dates, TOTP, etc)

It would be good if items instead of having hard coded fields at all were just a bunch of “custom fields”. Lets say I want to have an item with 4 TOTP fields?

A custom template for items would be able to be a collection of basically anything, additionally it should be possible to duplicate an item and also make a template from an existing item (where all the fields are blanked).

Thanks for the great work/software.

Hopefully with this features comes a bit of a UI improvement.

  1. Fields that are empty should not be displayed on items in read only mode
  2. label headers should be smaller and not appear as if they are their own fields
  3. new types of fields (dates, URLS, Etc.) (might be another feature request)

**see 1password for example.

The 4 existing types are not enough. Bitwarden badly needs more types, and an option to add custom types as well. The lack of this feature is really making Bitwarden Enterprise not as good as it should be for a paid application.


@kspearrin, allowing users to build their own templates might be very hard to implement from a development architecture stand point. I have instead tried to think of features that could make it appear like templates exist while building off of the existing design.

All of this would be built off the existing note item type:

  • hide all none utilized fields in the web vault when viewing like it does on the extension
  • allow for duplication of existing objects
  • allow someone to set the image icon for a secure note
  • allow new “type” field that could be added to or selected from existing which would be used to sort on the all items vault
  • add more types (I.E dates) to the custom item fields)

This would in effect create templates without having to create tens of new predefined fields and give a huge step over 1password and lasspass

What about a note that’s just json formatted and displayed in a specific way through the front end? You’d be able to share the json template without the data user to user without any limitations. The whole thing would then be encrypted in your vault.

yes please, customisable template based system.


I agree with all of the above. Coming from LP I was surprised there are no pre formatted templates for secure notes

I hope we get this feature soon.


I moved from “1Password” to “Bitwarden” and the only type I’m missing is “Software License”. All my added licenses in “1Password” are only Secure Notes in “Bitwarden” now. :frowning:

May be a new type “Software License” could be implemented to manage all license keys without having to add custom fields in a secure note for all the needed information.

Or make it possible to save templates which we are able to use. That could be another solution.

Thanks in advance! :slight_smile:

Recently moved from LastPass and this is one of the biggest hits to my user experience.
Manually adding fields to store software licenses in secure notes is a pain (and the custom text field doesn’t allow newlines so forget storing license keys which are PGP keys).

Would absolutely love some more available types in Bitwarden.



I had just assumed this would be standard feature on the Enterprise license. Must have to ensure users enter the correct information in the correct format.

Was going to move from LasrPass to Bitwarden today but when I hit this wall (custom fields??) I stopped…

Ill make the move when there are more templates to select from.


We really need more item types, preferably with the ability to create custom items that we could re-use.

like sturlath, we want to move from lastpass to bitwarden. For us it is not must-have, but very appreciated.
And Icons (like in Lastpass) to see what type the item has.


Seems that “License” is the most needed addl. type. Maybe that could be proivided per default.
Other than that, a “create type” feature seems to be the best solution here.

@kspearrin Any update about this feature request?


I like a simpler idea: Create your own custom templates, types, folders (already completed)…Have an option to duplicate an entry also…

I need the following types:

  • email account
  • software licence
  • wlan-connection
  • smart phone (manufacturer, model, sim-pin, sim-puk, imei, mac-address, bluetooth-address, device password)
  • bank account

The entries that are in bold font are urgent (here I have multiple entries in LastPass).

Bitwarden Team: Keep up the great work


What’s going on here? 245 votes and no implementation in sight? What is the voting system for here, if nothing happens?

It would be enough to create your own templates.
