Hi All

I am interestion to create custom fields to each project,
the custome fields shouldn't be presented to all projects, only to relevant one.
Please help.

Thanks in advance

The most obvious way to do this is simply to limit the custom field to the project(s) you need it in when you create it. You are specifically asked to define a field "context" when you create a new field.

You can alos do it slightly more indirectly by have different field configurations, and by having different sets of screens for different projects.

Have a read through for a very good guide to these principles.
