Option to create custom fields for tasks
How it works: In the planner settings, you can create and customize the field and then select which projects it will be available, including the "all projects" option. Each task created now will have the new custom fields avaliable inside the card.
Thanks for your feedback!
We’d like to add custom columns to Planner, but don’t have anything planned at this time. We’re working on three big initiatives that are landing later this year (stay tuned!) and will likely start work on recurring tasks soon after.
Please continue to vote as we utilize UserVoice heavily to order our product backlog and will adjust regularly if things change!
Thanks again for your patience and feedback,
The Planner Team

Sometimes it would be useful to add more features to the planner, otherwise I sometimes write down the results when playing PlayAmo https://happyfortune.com/playamo/ and would like to be able to re-read my notes more easily.
Need this feature asap as we are so much relying on Planner tasks. Please update the status
We have to use third party software in order to accommodate this need. We would prefer to remain within the 365 environment. Please consider this!

Can't wait any more. Need other solution :(

Trying my best to keep my team all under the Microsoft 365 umbrella, but when other tools like Trello, Clickup, etc offer simple pleasures as recurring tasks, saved checklist, and customized fields, as the CEO, I am not winning the argument regarding workforce efficiencies with my managers and teams they lead.
Hi, Please provide a status update? It would be a terrible shame to have to move to Jira to get this capability.

Hello, this feature would be really welcome. Do you have an update?

Any update here?
No response on this ticket since 2019, didn't realize covid would stop all development on mictrosoft services??
that's would be great and open to many opportunity to use MS Planeer
Having custom fields would be a game changer and we would be able to use Planner more often and more efficiently.
Hey there. We would need add additional fields in order to create some meaningful KPIs. Any updates on this ?
It is not clear to me why this is not a standard feature of more teams features but in particular Tasks. Right now Tasks is usable but not really very feature rich or customisable which it needs to be if it is going to be of any practical use

The ability to categorize tasks within a bucket would be a huge advantage. The tags are helpful but limited and not trackable. Features like these and their being incorporated into the filters & charts would make Planner more easily adopted across our organization. Also a nice to have would be a higher level progress view/report across plans within a channel or Team.
Criminal that this isn't a feature already. Huge block on the utilization of the tool!

Any update on this? Last response from Product team is Aug 2019.
When cooking kelp, lotus root, and burdock, http://om987.com if you add a few drops of vinegar, the taste will disappear.
It can also prevent discoloration.
Holy moly, this is the 6th highly voted feature request in this entire uservoice and no action / feedback since mid-2019. Is anyone in MS even reading these?

This is a must have if I am to use your tool in the long run and as an alternative to Monday.com. I love the simplicity of it and the fact it's part of my office echosystem. But I need to be able to tailor it a bit to add some more information in there that I need to drive my portfolio. Please make this a priority.
Custom fields and / or having like fields of MS Project is extremely important to allow this tool functionality to use with teams. Need to keep it simpler than Project, but have the ability to dump into project if the task becomes a major project. I need to be able to understand total hours estimated and actual hours consumed for a task, start and stop times, priority, resource assigned sub tasks, recurring tasks, check boxes, date fields. Views such as the current card view and perhaps a list view would be great as well.....
