Custom Fields for To-dos

IT would be great to have custom field support for to-dos. We use the to do to priortise the tasks between the team, if we had a custom field, this would make sorting and reporting easier.


A Comments field against to dos would also be really helpful

    Your request for custom fields on to-dos is a reasonable one.

    You should see that you can already add comments to to-dos. Also, if you reply to a to-do email from Aha! your response will automatically be converted to a comment on the to-do.

    We were thinking of using todos for management level tasks related to products and releases (setting up meetings, getting paperwork in place, etc).  It would be useful to have custom fields on the todos to help drive custom reporting on status etc.

    We need the ability to add status to To Do - Would be great if you can add it to the tool and also give us the flexibility to add additional fields. This may impact our decision if we are adopting the tool internally or not.

    I agree with the need to add Status to ToDos.  Ideal a visual status that can be customized (not started, on track, off track, blocked etc..)

    Custom fields for To-Dos would be a huge win for out company. We would actually be able to start using them if we could add fields that are needed for our business processes.

    There are so many reasons to have this capability. No Status,  Est Hrs or Custom Project Values can be added. For us,  one of the key shortcomings of Aha. Sitting here as an idea for nearly 3 years? Any ETA?

    We need to be able to link My Work to-do's to records or move record to-do's to other records.

    We could really benefit from this as well. One example is setting a To Do start date. If we are planning ahead, lets say we know it will take 1 month to complete a task. If we could set a start date we could then know we need to start on or before that date to have a chance to hit the end date. If we don't start by that date then we may already have an indication 1 month ahead of time we won't complete a task on time. Great for planning and staying ahead of schedule!

    To-dos should be treated like every other feature.   We were looking at using them to manage customer escalations.  Without customizing, the ability to turn them into useful reports is severely lacking.

    We are also looking for this functionality to priotise and report To-dos!
