Enterprise custom fields for Project for the Web Projects
Establish custom fields to be used by certain projects for portfolio reporting. Although you are considering adding capabilities for custom fields, it appears those would be added to each project by the project manager. Are we able to establish custom fields to be applied to projects within the portfolio that we select.

No way is this a serious solution!
It is a sticking plaster.
The REAL custom fields solution with visibility in DataVerse must be in the pipeline.
Someone knows when it's planned to be delivered.
When is that?
Totally agree with below comments. We must have reporting access to custom fields.

Essential for managing projects in an enterprise PMO.
Given how any project organisation lives on reporting, the lack of reporting in Project for the web is the single biggest hurdle to wider adoption.
Nick Morrelli commented
Really need these custom fields available via the Dataverse/CDS or any other method that doesn't involve a manual download.
Florian Hollerith commented
Local custom fields aren't usable for anyone who would like to have the same custom fields for many projects.
Need this feature soon!
Our customers are looking for:
1. Centrally defined custom fields for all projects
2. Reporting on custom fields or at least have a possibility to export them
agree on the need for custom fields which are centralised to projects within a team and can be transferred between teams,

Now that the "custom field" feature has been added this item needs many more votes. Sorry MS local custom fields just don't cut it for any enterprise.
Minimum requirement from every one of the dozens of customers who we've been trying to sell Project for the Web:
1. Custom fields centrally defined for all projects
2. Reporting on custom field data
