When you first open your account with Craft.io, one of the first actions you'll probably perform, after aligning your data model, is building your backlog.

In most cases, the backlog exists in another space, such as a spreadsheet or platform/dev tool. In case you choose not to integrate Craft.io workspace with your dev tool yet, then it’s possible to import the backlog via CSV.

The import of the backlog from a CSV file can help you save valuable time by eliminating the need to insert those items manually.

Importing your backlog can be accomplished by following the below steps:

  1. Access the Workspace Settings => Integrations

  2. Under the 'Import from file' section, select 'Import' next to the CSV option

  3. Download the provided template, which will help you ensure to follow the expected format and structure

  4. Remove the sample record when ready and add your own Products, Epics (also known as Sections in the CSV template), and Features, along with their description. Do not remove the header line.

  5. Drag& drop the file into the designated location or browse through your computer to locate the file

  6. Click 'Next' to start the import

Here are some Pro tips:

  • Make sure that all required fields (marked with an asterisk) are filled.

  • Ensure there are no special characters in the CSV.
