Custom fields for task management

Custom fields for task management

Custom fields help store relevant task details, customize information as per the workflow, and understand project requirements better. They allow users to store task details such as task status, task stage, type, expenditure, priority, categorization, and more.

Unlike the default task fields, custom fields help users store and alter specific task related information such as date, currency, colour, list, text, numbers, etc.

Custom fields add more value to the table view by helping users visualize more data in a single window. By viewing more data on a single window users can manage tasks effectively, thereby improving the table view's overall usability.
