Import Release phases and milestones: name, start and due date

I have an MS Project export of a service provider. It includes phases and milestones only.

Would be great I could CSV import that to a specific Aha! release.

Sample csv looks like

name start date due date
plan 2018-10-08 2018-11-08
implement 2019-01-08  
test 2019-02-08  


In a following version would be great to even import features via csv which have been associated to a phase in MS Project.

name start date due date type
plan 2018-10-08 2018-11-08 0
mind map     1
analyse     1
implement 2019-01-08   0
test 2019-02-08   0

    I am exploring moving over from and can easily export my Release/Phase milestones into a CSV, but can't import them. So exploring the template route to minimize the amount of work to start up in Aha! Roadmaps.

    As our use of Aha! has grown, so has our need for import of work that ineficient/new Aha! users have done offline in the apps that feel more native to them. This has also come up as we use Aha! for both internal product development, as well as project management of various VoC projects being executed with partners that we have onboarded in our environment.
    +The Gantt functions for phase/milestone entry have been improved for sure, but they have nowhere near the keystroke/mouse efficiency of banging Title, Type, start, end into an excel sheet.

    If there are technical challenges to implementing an import of phases and milestones- it would be an improvement if you could give us a modal like the epic/story/requirement records that had "enter to add another" functionality.

    Now after the update of start-date in other areas, the CSV based import of a start-date would really be beneficial. See

    It would be great to be able to import release phases and milestones.  As a workaround we've been using features in place of them but it's not been a good substitute since there are no milestones.

Possibility to upload via CSV "Release Phases" (Phases/Milestones)

as we plan our products in another tool, I use excel /CSV. Import to upload all relevant information for me in AHA!. A product has milestones which relate to our marketing activities. Therefore I can see dependencies of the milestones within the m...
