Feature Request: Limited Character Count in Text Fields RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am not sure, if this is the place for feature requests.

    It would be very helpful, if it would be possible to export task descriptions (for the one, who is supposed to do the task) from MS Project. There are already custom text fields to do so, but I am not always able to write the goals of a task within 255 characters and I have to use other software to produce task descriptions.

    Please Microsoft, don't limit the amount of characters in a text field in the next version.

    I belive, there is a lot of potential in MS Project with less strict text fields.

  • Hi lilalaser,
    Welcome to this Microsoft Project forum:)
    If you double click on a task name, from the Task Information dialog, you can select the Notes tab into which you are virtually unlimited in the text you can write.  I suggest you use that facility.
    FAQs, companion products and other useful Project information can be seen at this web address:  http://project.mvps.org/faqs.htm.
    Hope this helps - please let us know how you get on :)
