Working with Task Notes and Custom Fields


Notes and Custom fields are where the project manager can enter information that's important to the project, but is not needed by Project. These tabs on the Task Information dialog let you see and edit the Notes field and the defined task-level custom fields. Notes are used to capture information like detailed work instructions, or even simple status updates about the task. Custom fields are commonly used to capture information like the location of a task, or the name of the organization responsible for its completion.
