Microsoft Project Import
I use smartsheets mostly as a project management system for my clientbase. Most of my clients reuiqre porject schedules to be in Microsoft porject and I prefer doing my plans in MSP as it has much more funcatonality in terms of cost tracking, rsource planning etc. I import project plans from MSP into smartsheet and then run reports against the schedules to indicate milestones, tasks status etc.
The porblem I have is that when you import a plan from MSP it is imported as a new sheet in smartsheet which forces me to then copy all the rows to an existing sheet once imported to ensure sharing and reports remain intact. This has its own challanges as some fields don't copy etc etc.
I have two questions :
1. Is there another way of importing MSP files into an existing SS as oppsed to the cumbersome way I descirbed above
2. Is ther any functionality to import MSP and map MSP fields to fileds in SS , or could this be looked into as a future enhancement?
Your input and views will be much appreciated
