You can easily import tasks from a CSV file into a Hive project. To begin, download a sample CSV by going to your profile dropdown, then Import tasks, and selecting Import CSV. Then, fill out the following columns with your project details.
Title: This corresponds to your action card title. Please note, this field is required, all others are optional.
Start date: The start date of the action. If providing a Start Date, you must also provide a Due Date.
Due Date: The deadline for your action.
Assignees: The email address of the person responsible for completing the action. If there are multiple assignees, please separate each email address using commas.
Description: Maps to the action card description.
Status: Will default to Unstarted if nothing else is entered.
Parent: Use to create a subaction. The value in this column should exactly match a value in the Title column.
Milestone: If you list “true” or “yes”, the action in that row will become a milestone.
Phase: Maps to the project phase.
Predecessors: Creates a dependency between actions. If adding a Predecessors column, you’ll also want to add a column titled WBS. Number the actions in the WBS column and reference those values to indicate up your predecessors.
Note: Any columns you create that do not match one of the above fields will create a custom field on the project.
Once you’ve completed your CSV file:
- Name it with your desired project title.
- Go to your profile dropdown menu, then Import tasks, and select Import CSV.
- Click the link to attach your file, then click Upload files, and you’re all set!
