Import features from a spreadsheet

Before Productboard, did you log features in a spreadsheet or a tool that exports to XLSX/CSV? You can import features from spreadsheets to your Features board using import via CSV.


Note: To see the Import Features option, view your features board by Hierarchy, Release, or Status.


Grab your data

The following information can be uploaded for each feature:

  • Feature name
  • Feature description
  • Feature status
  • Feature owner (as long as the email is an active Maker in Productboard)
  • Feature start and end date (timeframe)
  • Feature effort

The feature name is required; all other fields are optional.

Import the data into the field provided.


Verify your data

After importing your file and Productboard has correctly identified the data does not contain errors, decide where in your hierarchy the new features should be added using the Import Features to… dropdown.


Fine-tune imported features

Once features are imported, you can continually refine their position in the hierarchy:

  • One at a time by drag and drop
  • Many at a time by selecting several features and using the hierarchy field


You can also use multi-select to update other values for many features simultaneously, such as status and release.
