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
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!

We need this :)
We need this function urgent!
I need this now, its the perfect tool to use for my needs but need 2-3 custom fields
We need this realy urgent - please add this functionality!
Unbelievable the tool doesn't have this functionality
We've been hoping to switch over our Kanban boards out of Trello for months but are unable to without this basic upgrade!

I looked at this Jan 2019. What a nice product (simple and free with O365), and then went to try and extend it for real world use. Nothing. So abandoned. Looking again because business asked again and I had forgot but vaguely remembered this issue. Tried again and just like it was in Jan 2019. I think Microsoft is scared this will cut into Microsoft Project or third party partners because this should already have been done.

Please... please add the custom field to Planner just like you have in Project.
Wow - hasn't this been added yet? I voted for it like 3 years ago.... Just in a situation again today where if it was possible it would be great...
Following the trend, please could you allow custom card and field as well as more power flow connectors
