One of the capabilities we recently got in Project for the Web is the ability to have custom fields within a project schedule. So today I want to explain how to create custom fields in Project for the Web.
Project for the Web is a Microsoft application available within Microsoft 365 that allows organizations to manage projects. It fills the gap between Planner , which is more of an informal task management application, and Microsoft Project, which is a desktop project management application that is sophisticated in terms of capabilities but also a bit confusing and not unintuitive to regular users. I actually compared the various task management options within Microsoft 365 in this article , so check it out.
Creating custom fields in Project for the Web is a great way to add more information to your project plans and track more data. Custom fields allow you to add additional fields to your project plans so you can track specific information that is important to your project. Custom fields can be used to capture information such as project status, customer names, tasks, milestones, and other project-specific data.
When creating custom fields in Project for the Web, you will first choose which type of field you want to create. There are three different types of fields available: text, number, and choice.
Once you have chosen the type of field you want to create, you can then enter in the information that you want to track. This can include the field name, field description, field type, and any additional information such as a drop-down list of available options.
Once you have created the custom field, you can then add it to your project plans. This can be done by going to the “Fields” tab and clicking “Add Field”. You can then select the custom field from the list of available fields and add it to your project plan.
