Customizing Fields

Every project has its own characteristics and requirements for data storage. The custom fields in Project provide reserved spaces that enable you to use a project file as a central data repository for your plan.

Perhaps you have an internal code for identifying every task on a project. This might be a cost code, a work product code, or a code provided by a customer to facilitate information exchange. These codes might actually be alphanumeric descriptive text that doesn't fit a pattern. Costs might also be associated with the project that are not easily included in the resource or fixed-cost fields. It is also common to need to identify the status of a task as other than percentage complete, such as approved/not approved. Project provides a variety of custom fields and field types to accommodate storing these and other types of specialized data.
