    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

    seems ridiculous that this hasnt been implemented yet... I will never move to Planner until I can do this.

    Yes... definitely need ability to add custom fields. I have several data points that need collecting and to be able to use in reports (exporting or otherwise). Branch, Dept, etc. Buckets will not resolve all of that for me because if I use Buckets as my separate Departments, for example, I still need to be able to segment by branch and other organizational categories we use in the company (priority status, severity, etc.) Please add this ability

    I would agree with the below comment... Doesnt seem like Planner will be able to meet my needs at this point, which is unfortunate. I really would like to move away from Sharepoint list Tasks into using Planner. Must have ability to add custom fields, so we can monitor pieces of information about a Task such as Branch, Department, etc. The current capabilities just won't work. Please improve this Microsoft. Seems like things are moving slowly with this project.

    Hello All! The priority feature is complete! Priority is rolled out to production across the Web and Teams. It’s also available in the mobile app an in the beta endpoint for the MS graph API. We’ve also updated the charts view to include a priority chart .

    Please give it a try and let us know what you think! If there’s something you’d like us to improve upon, please find and vote on that suggestion or create a new one so we can prioritize accordingly.
