Faulty Microsoft Project import
All my projects start with with schedules developed in Microsoft Project, either internally or by contractors. One I have a draft or baseline in MS Project, I would like to import it and mange my changes and updates in Smartsheet.
Unfortunately, I am finding the import from MS Project into Smartsheet very unreliable. Even in the simplest of schedules, a lot of the task dates are off, tasks dependencies are ignored, etc.
Smartsheet support says "..this is not something that we are currently working on as we don’t have a direct integration with Microsoft Project. " :-( I find that puzzling, since project collaboration is one of the key uses cases for Smartsheet, and reliable import/export from/to MS Project is a pre-requisite in real life/corporate environment.
I cannot spend hours massaging each schedules after import. I may just as well stick to MS Project or Project Online/Server all the way. And that is without even mentioning the inability to import the non-working/calandar settings from Project.
Anyone out there with similar issues/needs? Any advice?
