Ability to Add a Property Tab (i.e. Opportunities) Next to Current Tabs, Details, Problems, Policies etc.

Currently you can add additional "properties" within the "Details" tab behind a task. However, you can't:
1. Add a stand alone property tab next to Details, Problems, Policies, Documentation etc.
2. Move added "properties" within the "Details" tab to the top of the viewing list.

Please could BWL provide the ability for us to add:
1. Stand alone properties i.e. "Opportunities" next to the "Problems" tab.
2. Have some sort of rating system applied to the "Opportunities" property tab such as ease-to implement (low, medium, high) and anticipated impact of implementation (low, medium, high) rather than free text.

The product would be phenomenal if this small change was applied.

    Thanks for your request! The ability to add custom tabs is on the long-term roadmap but at this point we don't know when that might get planned.
    However, you might consider creating enumerated custom properties for ease-to-implement & implementation impact.....with values of low, medium & high.
    Custom enumerated properties are described here: https://us001.blueworkslive.com/scr/docs/bwl/topics/adm_cust_account.html#customizingproperties
    And there is a hands-on lab about custom enumerated properties in the Hands-on Lab section of this page: https://www.ibm.com/demos/collection/IBM-Blueworks-Live/
