Best Practice for Capturing Project Info on PM project plan

My team is using the Project Management Office template set. I love the template set but I saw this Project Information section on a different project template and I like the idea. I added it to the Project Plan template in our PMO, but I can't figure out how to use it or if there's a better way to capture this information.

It's at the top of a Gantt/grid sheet for implementation/onboarding projects, but the columns don't provide a text field to enter the info. I've used the comments per row to enter the data but I feel like there's a better way to keep project details at the top of the project plan?

    Hi @PMwithaDream

    I hope you're well and safe!

    I'd recommend adding another column on the right side of the Task Name. You can call it details to fill in the answers and other details on other rows.

    Make sense?

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic week & Happy Holidays!
