The answer is "yes". It would help to know what version of Project you are using (i.e. one of the 365 plans, 1, 2 or 3, stand alone version, etc.).


Basically, Project has multiple extra Text, Cost, Number, Flag, and other fields that can be associated with any task, resource or assignment. You might want to take a look at this Wiki article:
