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
+1 for that
Custom fields would add huge value and usability for the Planner app.

I agree with the capability of customizing the task fields. I can turn it into risk register, for example.
As a project manager and consultant this is absolutely a core function that shall be added soon. One can show and add plans in Sharepoint, Teams, Flow, PowerApps... Me, my team, and not at least my customers demand hour forecast, budgets, and controlling. How wonderful this would be to have it all in one place.

We have been waiting for years to get this done from MSFT. But recently found an app (apps4pro planner) which allows me to create the custom fields which will get displayed in planner as well. It helped me a lot to make my projects look in a better shape.

Looking forward for this feature.
When? Waiting four years for this expansion.
I have to make a customization on Sharepoint to make what I need since planner doesnt enable custom fields. One last would help a lot - make it syncronize with formal Agenda meetings since decisions there must be linked with activities of Planner.
I'm working in a billion dollar gov tech company in Brazil. The lack of this feature is a block for us.

I agree to all voters for that feature. It would be pretty helpful to add custom field into the tasks in Planner which as filter-able later on.
We need to add custom fields into our project. Need to customise the base data captured and reporting out of the same

Does the custom column in planner rolled out?
Request created June 2016. 4,700 votes.
This is also a feature we need right now.
We need to edit the existing field-names or/and add new ones. W also need choose thier data-type (date, number, text, etc).
These fields should also be exported columns of the Excel file.
Is there any update regarding the implamentation of such feature?
Otherwise we need to look for another solution.
Thanks in advance.
Congratulations Microsoft. Soon we will celebrate that almost 4 years ago this wish was submitted and that many users miss the possibility of custom fields.
I would like to hear a realistic answer whether this wish will be granted and if so when?
If the Planner schedule can be added to Outlook calendar, how come there is no time field? That's definitely a must-have field.
Planner would be the tool of my choice if I could add some custom fields .....
This feature would be really great!
I am looking for alternatives out of Microsoft suite because of this lack.
Why hasn't this been done yet
