Choice type custom field in Microsoft Project for the Web


today I will show you new Custom field type which is available in Microsoft Project for the Web – Choice.

First, as I Always do I will create a new Project:

image Now, let’s say that I want for each Task have a Risk type: High, Medium, Low. For that I will crate the Custom field following next steps:






As you can see, if I need more than Three options, I can add them using Add a choice!

And that,s it. I can now choose for each Task, the Risk type:


If I want to reorder sequence, let’s say to Low, Medium high I can use CRTL+UP or CRL+DOWN keys for Windows or COMMAND+UP, COMMAND+Down for Mac.

Of course if I want to put Icons (Emoji) instead of letter I can do that as well using Win+; button:


An last but not least. I can create up to 20 choice type fields per Project, and when I copy Project, all those fields are going to be copied as well.

Very useful thing.

Best Regards!
