Project Online - Could not find 'Status' field and also unable to add custom field with name 'Status' RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm not able to find status field in the project online which is available in the MS Project desktop version with Project and the Task. Any reason why this field is missing in the project online?. 

    Since Status field is missing so I thought to add custom field (formula based) with name status but while adding custom field with Name status getting the below message -

    The custom field could not be saved due to the following reason(s):

    • The custom field name is a reserved name.

    Any idea if status field is not available in the project online then why It is not allowing to add custom field with name status?.

    I know that I can add custom field with other name like ProjectStatus but willing to know the reason for this message or am missing something.
