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.

        In example I need information about planed and actual time.
        Without additional, custom fields, planner is usless for me.

        Yes please, something that enables us to add hours spent, or which customer this activity was done for..

        Just an Idea, but something like a customizable SharePoint list with the Bucket and Card view. And yes, limit the number of columns, but please don't make me do all of this in Graph. I like it but my end users will have to continue to rely on me for all changes/customizations.

        Must have feature. I can see maybe limiting the number of custom fields. Also would like more options on status: "ongoing", "on hold" for example

        I would add the possibility to get the sum of all values informed for a numeric field at the top or bottom of each column.

        Absolutely essential feature. Examples link to evidence of task progress/completion. Product/sub product task relates to. Custom column promoted from sync’d project plan

        It would be great if planner allowed the definition of custom fields at the plan and/or task level. Without this feature we have continued using Monday.com, Excel spreadsheet, and SharePoint lists to track our work.

        I address this is a must have feature and thought it was available! Disappointing it isn't

        Extremely useful, Planner is not working for us without this option
