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
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!!!
Dear @Planner Team,
Please add this very important future that has been requested 4 years ago! more than 725 comments and 6764 votes (with recent entries) mean that it is important to the people/users!
Answer to your questions:
1. How many custom fields would you use? A: 1-20, depending on the case
2. What kind of fields would they consist of? A: time field (currently planner only offers to enter dates, without time), number fields, text field, list field (of different types)
3. Which (or how many) Plans would you add the same custom fields to? A: Custom fields should have a "plan" scope, but there should be a common repository of custom fields that one can use in different plans
4. And any other information about how custom fields would work within your current Planner workflow! A: User should be able to export custom fields to Excel / JSON file!
