Import epics/stories from existing Pivotal Tracker project

I want to import from Pivotal Tracker to Aha! and have it establish a link between my epics/stories in Pivotal to my Features/Requirements in Aha!.

Right now I can import if I first export to a CSV. It would be easier to have a direct import capability.

    Would be incredibly helpful to anyone joining Aha who has existing Pivotal Tracker projects. Otherwise, you have to export the PT stories/epics, delete them in PT, add then in Aha!, and then re-sync.  Not a process many are willing to do is my guess.

    Importing data from PT is a big PITA so far. Any work around on this?

    We're are really trying to use aha but prodpad seems to have the import feature WAY simpler...

    We have a LOT of data in pivotal tracker right now. I would love to add Aha to our product development toolset but importing through cvs, deleting everything from PT and pushing it back (while loosing a lot of historical meta data along the way) is really not an option for us now.

    I guess the only way I'll be able to move this forward would be for future projects not yet started.

    Note to Aha! Devs:  Please see how Meliora accomplishes this very straightforward integration.

    All one has to do is click on the gear/cog icon in Pivotal, Select All Stories ( from the Backlog ), and create a label -- which gets auto assigned to all stories, and can later be removed.    And this much is sufficient to kickstart the batch migration progress from Pivotal and works like a champ!

    Not having this feature, for all the reasons enumerated by the other commenters, presents a major block that prevents commitment to this otherwise Stellar tool.

    I've also voted for this feature. We've been using Pivotal Tracker for years, and it's the primary way we're publishing backlogs to our open source community.

    We're trying to get more sophisticated in how we do long-term roadmap planning, and it's definitely a drawback that Aha! can't know about stories that have been in the backlog, sometimes for years.

    We have over three years' worth of data from multiple large projects in Pivotal. Having this one way integration isn't useful at all. As someone mentioned, Meliora (among a few others) does a great job of this. Until this is addressed, Aha isn't living up to its potential for us.
