I want to add some custom fields to the project management module in the Odoo Community edition version 9. Is this possible?

Thank you,

You have to activate the developer mode in order to get access to the technical features.

In Odoo9 Community edition we can enable technical settings from Help Menu (on left of user Menu with ? symbol)

From About--> Activate developer mode

it will activate technical settings.

And for adding custom fields you can also create your own custom module, in that module you can inherit both model and view to make your custom changes. For more:- Link

Hope this helps.

You can inherit the View, but only the view definition not its design that must be recreated from scratch (or so it seems, I have a question open on this matter). Moreover there are some troubles with inherited fields (as long as your model in not an extension of the base class, since some inherited fields cannot be accessed from your view, also for this I have a question open here).
