Project Meta Data Feature Request
Sent this to support and wanted to see if anyone else could use this capability:

I use Omnifocus to manage project workflow for my small business. One of the things I struggle with is tracking what I call meta-data about the project. Information like who worked on the project, where the project was published, invoices related to the project etc... We used to keep all this information in the notes section of the project but searching the notes, while impressive, is not fine grained enough for my purposes. For example I want to search all the projects that have been invoiced but do not have a payment date listed. Can't do that with the notes.

I'm sure a recommendation would be to go to OmniPlan but that is not task oriented enough for me. So I really need the task orientation of Omnifocus as well as its syncing.

Has there been any consideration given to allowing users add custom fields to just the project. I know I have seen suggestions that customer fields may be added to the tasks, I don't really need every task to contain this information, just the project.

Letting folks add their own custom fields is one of the ideas that has been kicked around; an approach to that feature that works with projects and actions isn't going to be much more effort than than an approach that only works with one of the two.

Best way to get this into the application (if you haven't already) would be to send email to the [EMAIL=""]support ninjas[/EMAIL] so they can attach your request to the dev database and let the team know you need this. Thanks!
