How to add fields to the Projects summary view?!?!

Hi all,

On the project summary view, it currently just shows, for each project, the Project Name, hours, tasks, issues, and resources. I desperately need it to show two custom fields that I have added to the Project Setup form: namely, Project Location and Project Description.

In my company, all operations are coded by project, and the staff are not all familiar with just the project name. On the Projects summary, they need to see the location and description for each project otherwise they will waste time opening and closing project numbers.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Kind Regards, Matthew.
