Does ProjectLibre offer export and import features ?

 I may be spoiled by features from Microsoft Project but wanted to be able to import (and export)  tasks from a CSV formatted file.
Does ProjectLibre offer export and import features ? Is there another way to load up a project with tasks as a bulk load ?


Thanks, Michael (newcomer to ProjectLibre)

Hello MIchael,


Welcome to the community.  Here is what you can do.  You can cut/paste spreadsheet data into the spreadsheets of ProjectLibre.  You can import the .csv into OpenOffice or LibreOffice spreadsheets.   You can also rearrange the spreadsheet in ProjectLibre to whatever columns match up and then just paste the data into ProjectLibre.   We can do a mapping/import in the future to allow import directly of .csv.  There is just a lot of things on the list.

Happy New Year!

I copied and pasted from project libre into libreoffice calc, but the task numbers did not come over and blank lines throw off the calc line numbers. 

Perhaps all I need is a libreoffice calc macro to delete empty rows?

ProjectLibre uses the critical path methodology.  It automatically schedules the tasks by predecessor/successor relationships.  If you put constraints on the task or other modifications it puts the "i" and you can see what constraints are on the task
