Please note: you must respect the names of the columns and the order of the columns so that we can take them into account. The columns with red asterisks [ * ] are mandatory columns for the import of times. Furthermore, the dates must be in the following format: Year-Month-Day (2023-02-22).

Important points:

  • Each time must correspond to a project and a task.

  • The [description] object corresponds to the comments you wish to import.

  • The [description] and [subtask] objects are optional.

  • The [date] object must be in this format: Year-Month-Day, with dashes.

  • The objects must be in the same order as they appear in the documentation:

    1. [email]: the email address of the person who entered the time.

    2. [date]: the date to which the time entry corresponds.

    3. [description]: the comment corresponding to the time to be imported.

    4. [duration]: the time to be imported in hours.

    5. [project]: the exact name of the project to be attached.

    6. [subtask]: the exact name of the subtask to attach.

In case of an import error

If the import fails, you will be notified of known errors in your file. We will give you the line number where your error occurs, the type of error, and further information.
