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
We absolutely need customizable fields in Planner in order to be able to use it more effectively. There are requirements for information we need to accept creative requests (file type, size, etc) & we're currently not able to use Planner for these requests because people forget to include all the information we need (so we currently work on an Excel sheet). It would be great to be able to create custom fields so we could keep all Creative tasks organized in Planner (combining the requests from different teams) & use that for our communication instead!
Hoping this customization comes soon!

Hello all, How can I add the additional fields in the planner? that information is a bit unclear.
It would be great if each client would be able to have a custom field for tasks to identify statuses. I understand each company is different and may need different types of statuses based on the project need. If a client could have the custom field available to enter their own statuses per Planner this would be a major enhancement. This way the custom field could be used for each project in a planner.

Its great feature.. I am new to MS Team and planner, please can anyone show us, where will i found the setting for planner.. I tried right click on planner tab, and it has only option to choose planner and save it
This is very much needed to bring the product up to part with tools like Trello and Asana.
Please make planner more like Asana custom fields!
Custom fields would be wonderful!
It will be good if planner allows us to add screen shots into the comments section
It will be a great help if planner can allow us to create custom fields for tasks
It will be help if planner allows us to create a custom workflow hierarchy from one bucket to other bucket

Consider calculated fields as a custom field type. For instance, I'm using the planner for my RAID logs and would like to establish Risk ranking based on Impact and Probability.
Please allow users of the planners to customise their task card.
for example, I use every single task for a single customer. Dealing with the customer go through lots of tasks until the process completed for the customer.
in addition No way of backing up the comments and attached paper to each task
I think a little more work and it will make the planner the best task management system
especially if you can allow integration between the task as ID task and the related ID customer

This is much needed feature. Planner Team, When it will be rolled out?
Much need. So require. Very want.
My company needs the ability to assign tasks by work order number and Engineering Change Order number. We want to filter by these fields and use the fields in work flows. We will need customized field feature to do this.
Very much needed!
very very needed.
Very very important and needed ... please start development!
So needed! I really want planner to replicate Trello's features so i can keep everything all withing on environment.
We should be able to add a custom field to Planner to allow users to utilize a more robust functionality
