How to Import Data
Click the Open Button
Find and Open your Data File
Once the "Import Project" window shows up, find and open your data file, which should have a CSV format (comma separated values, see below).
Data File Format: CSV
CSV stands for "comma separated values," and it is an easy/simple format that is used to exchange data between different applications.
You can also open or generate a csv file with spreadsheet programs like Excel.
The file format is simple, it is divided into 6 columns: Level, Task name, Due Date, Start Date, Status, Finish Date, and Notes.
The first column, "Level," as the name says, contains information about the level where your goal/task is located.
"-1" is the top most level, and it represents your goal project name.
"0" is the next level, representing your main goals (top level layer).
"1" is the first sub-goal level, and so on...
The other column fields are straight forward, as they are a direct representation of the original data (Due Date, Start Date, Status, Finish Date and Notes). Pay attention to "Status," which is represented as a value going from 0 to 1 (representing 0% to 100%).
If you open the csv file with a text editor, you notice that the fields are enclosed by double quotes and separated by commas.
