Project Data Requirements

Fields that can be imported are limited to the ones included in the Project Spreadsheet Template.

NOTE: Adding additional fields will not import those fields into your account and could result in an import failure. All column headers that were originally in the Project Spreadsheet Template must be present, but only fields for columns marked “Required” need values.

Here are the requirements for each field on the spreadsheet:
