It’s very easy to import your feature request backlog into Receptive. Whether you have a spreadsheet with dozens of columns of data or simply a single column of ideas, you just need to save the file in CSV format (UTF-8) and use our import tool.
We recommend seeding 10-20 requests into your dashboard, your latest 5-10 releases, and anything you already have planned or are currently building to populate your roadmap.
Here's a quick view of our import process:
How to import your feature CSV file
You will have the ability to designate a column in your CSV for your Receptive feature requests:
- Title (minimum required, 256 character limit)
- Tag(s) - features with the same tag are grouped together in Receptive’s reporting e.g., tag by product area
- Products - these must already exist within Receptive before you import
Once you have your CSV file, make sure it's saved as Unicode UTF-8.
Click "Upload file".
If your CSV has a header row, select “Yes”. Choose the appropriate title, description, and tag columns and leave the rest as the default
Not used. As you choose the columns, you’ll see a preview of how your data will be imported into Receptive.
Once you’re happy with the setup, select
Import. Once your data has imported, you will have a confirmation message listing the number of features that were imported.
