For an easy migration of backlog items from other systems a CSV import can be carried out by product owners.

To import backlog items, perform the following steps:

  1. On your personnel dashboard or on a scrum project execute the “Import Backlog Items” context menu command.
  2. Enter the path to the CSV file in the Content field.
    Note: Click the “Download CSV Template” button to retrieve a template that describes the necessary data structure.
  3. Click “Start Import”.
  4. After the import has finished, click “Next”.
