It is possible to import Assignments only for User Stories, Tasks and Bugs.
It’s possible to import both the Assignments for multiple roles and the assignment for a single role, depending on how many responsible roles you’ve got for an entity.
In the Importing wizard form, please pick Developer from drop down list of fields available as target for mapping with the Assignments column from your CSV file.
Let’s say, you have User Story with three responsible roles: Developer, QA Engineer and Project Manager. In this case, the assignments are split. For example, you want to import a User Story that has three people assigned in total, but the Developer is John White, the QA Engineer is Andrew Gray and the Project Manager is Sara Red.
You should enter the assignments in the following format:
John White (Developer), Andrew Gray (QA Engineer), Sara Red (Project Manager)
The general format is:
First name Last name (Role), First name Last name (Role), First name Last name (Role)
For a single responsible role named Developer, just enter the first and last name:
You can also use emails during import, which can be helpful in case you have people with the same First Name Last Name. The format is similar:
Specified users should be added as members to the Project that contains the entities you update. Check Project > People tab for this purpose. Role of the users doesn't matter.
Local symbols in names
Some of your users may have local characters in their names. It is possible to import data with such symbols.
