Project Data Fields
Same way as you can add Data Fields to Resources and Tasks, you can add them to Projects. The field types are fixed: Text, Number, List (colouring), Date (milestones), User, and Link. The possibilities, on the other hand, are endless. We know it's a cliche, but really they are. For example, you can add pictures to your Project with the Link option, or add the contacts number trough the Number option. Basically, if your Projects have data that you need to fit into the planner, Data Fields are the way to do it.
Must-know about this featureYou can add Data Fields from the Project dialog or in the List View. You can also add Milestones through Data Fields. The Data Fields you have added will appear in all of the Project dialogs but you have to add a value for each Project individually.
