Is it possible (maybe in the future) to customize the Tasks in Planner? We would like to add couple of fields/properties to the Tasks.

I would be interested in this ability to add fields. For me I would to be able to identify related tasks ( with each have its own checklist - possibly have a single top level task (label). I would also want to be able to ensure that only when all realted tasks are completed does the overall top level task able to move to the next bucket.
The category colours are a nice visual marker but can really be used identifying distinct groups of tasks.

@TomA26 It is not possible to include additional fields in Planner. But for your case, "Requested by" is as same as the creator of the task? Also, there is no rich text editor available and not sure if MSFT will provide this. Optionally you can use third-party tools to create and update custom fields in Planner.

This looks like is the 7th most popular request on the uservoice @ https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/14704662-op...
Please add any additional comments to that post; hopefully Microsoft will begin to implement this request.

@TomA26 You can try Apps4.Pro Planner Manager for this. I have implemented this same feature for many customers and they are using it successfully in Planner.

Hi @JBragado70, you need to use the checklists as the sub cards in Planner web portal. But using third party app (Apps4Pro) you can be able to create the sub tasks and create break-up for the tasks. Those tasks appear as the separate tasks in Planner portal, but from Apps4Pro you can be able to see the task relationship.

I'd love to learn more about opportunities to customize MS Planner/To-Do. I specifically am trying to use to manage multiple client projects in one main board/planner where the buckets are general status and the tasks belong to a single client we switch from bucket to bucket as it progresses. It would be ideal for the checklist to have assignee or allow for sub-task with different assignee. And when someone checks it off for a date/time stamp to appear with MS user.
