How to import entities with Custom Fields
You import entities with Custom Fields the same way you import other entities in Targetprocess with the exception of a few additional rules you must take into account.
To find all custom fields used in your process, navigate to Settings → Processes → [Your process] → Custom Fields
To import the list of User Stories with Custom Fields into Targetprocess add the additional values to the *.csv file you are going to import. Use spreadheet editor to modify the file, and then save it as a *.csv file.
For the example below, you’ll need to add an additional column to the *.csv file and provide the custom field name and value.
To import a user story with the “Location” custom field, add the “Location” field name to the first line of the *.csv file and add its value, let’s say “United Kingdom,” to the second line.
You can import from the User Stories List page or from Settings → Import page.
You have to obey proper format of provided values in the file you import.

|Text||Any text value||Targetprocess|
