Import from Google Sheets

You can import data into GamePlan from Google Sheets.When importing from Google Sheets, GamePlan looks for the field names in the first row of the first worksheet. Only the Task column is mandatory. All other fields are optional.  Fields can be in any column order.

Custom field data can be imported into GamePlan.  First, create the custom fields in GamePlan.  Then, make sure that your column headers in your Google Sheet match the custom field names in GamePlan.

Nested groups can be imported using the | character (vertical bar or pipe character) to separate group names.  To link from tasks in other groups, use the | separator between the group name and the task name, as shown below.

Use a semi-colon separator between people where multiple people are assigned to a task.
