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

Ability to have custom fields that can lookup values from the common data model would be fantastic. In our environment we are using project online and having the ability to select the master project and project task would be fantastic. We are currently using planner to track sub tasks in our individual engineering teams and overall tasks in Project Online.

Really want this! at the moment planner cannot be used in a standard GTD configuration! with states like ASAP, Short term, long term, and so on
yes need a on hold but would prefer ability to add any custom status
I want to create Planner with name of my task list & want to store list id as well in planner group. So I want to add a custom field in Planner group, After that I want to add some custom filed in task & update status field as well.
Can you please let me know how can I do this?
Nowadays we use often tasklists in sharepoint. I use a custom Field "Follow up date". to organize work of myself and consultants. Custom fields will make Adoption of Planner easier.
Maybe "we" will switch to Google products. We, as in the New York City Department of Education, with over 12000 employees and 1 million students.

BUMP! Do it MS!
Would help a great deal, I want to use it as a Proper KANBAN board with SAFe agile input. An EPIC, then a user story and a value statement
Need to be able to show percentage
using it for workload planning, need an "ongoing" option
hope the planner team starts on this one as soon as possible
how many votes does this need to get started? It's been a year since this has been put up here. :-(

Similar to the color fields with user defined labels, another simple flex field would be so useful - especially for some kind of effort/story points or category.
It is very important and adds more flexibility to this tool
This is a critical feature for my organisation, without it MS planner is little more than an ornament. Without more granularity in statuses we sacrifice almost all of the benefit.
MS, please give us feedback on this.
It is useless to my team without it :-(

Se also "Feature similar to Trello Power ups"
"Planner should be extensible similar to Trello Power ups. This makes it very easy for third party integrations to work."
"Indeed, Power ups are the killer feature in Trello. If there is anything the Planner team can learn from Trello than it is how with Power ups they turned a nice kanban tool into an indispensable application central to all team activities. The introduction of Power ups is comparable to the introduction of apps on the iPhone. A stroke of genius. It seem that currently the Planner team is wasting its time on nice-to-have features like calendar integration rather than boldly pursuing Planner's future as the new platform for all team work. But maybe The Planner team behind the scene is already working on their version of Power ups and will surprise us all. Time will tell."
