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
that's would be great and open to many opportunity to use MS Planeer
Having custom fields would be a game changer and we would be able to use Planner more often and more efficiently.
Hey there. We would need add additional fields in order to create some meaningful KPIs. Any updates on this ?
It is not clear to me why this is not a standard feature of more teams features but in particular Tasks. Right now Tasks is usable but not really very feature rich or customisable which it needs to be if it is going to be of any practical use

The ability to categorize tasks within a bucket would be a huge advantage. The tags are helpful but limited and not trackable. Features like these and their being incorporated into the filters & charts would make Planner more easily adopted across our organization. Also a nice to have would be a higher level progress view/report across plans within a channel or Team.
Criminal that this isn't a feature already. Huge block on the utilization of the tool!

Any update on this? Last response from Product team is Aug 2019.
When cooking kelp, lotus root, and burdock, http://om987.com if you add a few drops of vinegar, the taste will disappear.
It can also prevent discoloration.
Holy moly, this is the 6th highly voted feature request in this entire uservoice and no action / feedback since mid-2019. Is anyone in MS even reading these?

This is a must have if I am to use your tool in the long run and as an alternative to Monday.com. I love the simplicity of it and the fact it's part of my office echosystem. But I need to be able to tailor it a bit to add some more information in there that I need to drive my portfolio. Please make this a priority.
Custom fields and / or having like fields of MS Project is extremely important to allow this tool functionality to use with teams. Need to keep it simpler than Project, but have the ability to dump into project if the task becomes a major project. I need to be able to understand total hours estimated and actual hours consumed for a task, start and stop times, priority, resource assigned sub tasks, recurring tasks, check boxes, date fields. Views such as the current card view and perhaps a list view would be great as well.....

I second: Anonymous comment · January 12, 2021 11:55 PM · This would be an easy way to keep a lot of people out of having to use more advanced, and often complicated, tools (similar to what's offered by Atlassian). Bring on the custom fields functionality!
Resources are wasted investigating alternatives.

Yes, Pleeeease do this!
It really would make sense to be able to start with the task list (Lists > Work Project Tracker or Issue Tracker template) to create each plan, and a "Project" column should be standard to track multiple projects in a plan!!! (;

For a PM, the ability to add fields to tasks is very necessary. If that functionality were available, Teams/planner would be my method of tracking team activities and would be adopted far more broadly in our organization!
Very need this feature! In order to manage small projects and both ways integration with Project Online

Having this is highly appreciated. As a PM, I'm moving more existing (and for the future new) project to Teams and use planner as tracking tool for open activities. Having customer fields (even if it is even limited to a number of fields) is a missing feature.
In the past I used Smartsheet a lot, where I could create customer dropdown boxes, boolean with a custom name, ...

Definitively need this custom fields...
I want to use it as part of the whole Microsoft tool, but Trello is much more advanced on this at the moment. There is not enough column and possibilities, it is too much static.
For example, I'd like to add ticket numbers linked to task, an plain text on comments isn't reliable...
Thanks for reconsidering adding custom fields.
Rob Hutchings commented
Is this still the right uservoice to push for this? Or do we need to head over to the MS Teams one? No one planner suits all so to make it applicable for the many we need this overlooked feature. With 7251 votes and 760 comments you think it'd been bumped up enough for Microsoft to reconsider and update us of their plans.

Is there anything landing concerning custom fields this year? It would allow flexibility to a lot of companies. We use one planner form for travel scheduling - we need a country field as labels wouldn't cover the amount of countries possible ... , purely in text is rubbish.
