How can we improve Planner?

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.

        Would add so much value into planner on a task time rather than having a bunch of content in description

        This would provide flexibility to customers who need specific functionality - if it were available, I’d create the following:

        - Duration
        - Effort
        - Type (would use this for Break/Fix, RTB, Project, Research/Design)

        Adding custom fields would be an enhancement our team would use. It would be really useful to create additional fields and build out a choice list. The custom fields would be plan wide.

        The custom fields would also be used to filtering tasks.

        Hi there, custom fields would be a very useful feature in Planner to allow to structure data capture in the planner items.

        This would be a valuable addition to the product and is a limitation for my team and for reporting.

        From June 7, 2016 until today are 32 months. No response from Microsoft.
        This is not how you treat users. When can we expect a response from Microsoft?

        Please :) I just discovered this limitation when I tried to create a field to use so I could see a "parent" of sorts for multiple related tasks.

        If only planner tasks were SharePoint list items, buckets were SharePoint lists and plans were Sharepoint sites/subsites. Then we could use list columns, managed metadata and content types to configure our plans and their tasks with. We could use flows and O365 connectors. When tasks are copied across plans their custom metadata would copy with them (if the plan's fields were configured to use managed metadata). Perhaps CDS for Apps connector is an option. It could potentially provide customization capabilities to plans and their tasks. Planner integrations with the CDS would open up a whole bunch of possibilities. At the very least, flows and business processes could be triggered to execute by entity field changes.

        Shame! All other alternatives have this feature. Without custom fields, this app is absolutely useless!
