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

Hi Planner Team,
I think that for many teams (mine as well, of course) it would be great to have such a feature. In our case we will switch from Trello to Planner in the blink of an eye.
We're using Office 365 in the most part of our company, and we would really appreciating using planner as well, not last to save some bucks.
What is wrong with Microsoft? As a Microsoft partner, user and shareholder it's extremely frustrating and disappointing to see Microsoft solutions which we are supposed to both use and promote lack some of the most basic, logical functions. WTF
Dear Planner Team,
A lot of my colleagues and me need also urgent the possibility to add own data fields (or columns) to the task list for my and their teams in Planner.
For example: effort, client, account no or other additional information for each task.
Also an Excel-export-function for the whole Tasklist would be very usefull or the possibility to calculate some fields (e.g. effort).
Thanks and Regards
defo need an option to add custom fields in the planner
JUST USE SHAREPOINT!
PLANNER IS A HUGE FAIL FOR SERIOUS USERS!!!
Really? does anyone understand how tasks are managed? Surely the ability to categorise them in many ways is a Number 1 priority. The fact that nearly 7000 users have taken time out of their day to vote for this feature suggests that 100's of thousands actually would benefit from it's introduction.
WE ARE ABOUT TO PULL THE PIN ON OFFICE 365 ACROSS OUR ORGANISATION AS YOU JUST DO NOT GET IT!!!
This would be a great function for Planner with multiple buckets.
One more suggestion will be a drop down field.
Add fields to the planner app.
The planner app should be expandable for adding items like "duration", "links to files", etc.
I wonder how many votes a feature request needs to get before it gets implemented

I,m working with requirements. I'm looking at using DevOps, lists in SharePoint or Planner.
I would like to use Planner but then I need to have custom fields like in a List, so merge List functionality into Planner
Mathew Carter commented
Can pull in or merge with some of the Microsoft Lists items!
Have a business request for this and for this to be created month over month as a "template."
Please add this facility. (Surely just an array of customisable fields with data key and type?) We're just looking at adopting planner within an internal team and could really do with ability to add our own fields to the task cards. e.g. hours, percentage complete would be a good starting point. Without such there is limited use for the planner app at all. I'd estimate a maximum of 10 custom fields being needed as any more it becomes too arduous for people to complete.

Would love to be able to replace Monday.com with Planner to save that extra cost

Nothing says this is a NEED more than losing users. We gave it our best effort to use Planner but were too constrained without this capability. Sadly we are moving off Planner indefinitely. Please send notification out if/when this is available. So much potential with O365. Thanks,
We need this !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Would LOVE this! Please!!!
