Like with other imports, you'll need to download the import template, make a copy of it, and then fill it in. Follow the steps in the section below for help with this process.
This article is meant to be a resource to help you download and complete the import spreadsheet on your own. However, if at any point you have questions that aren't being answered by this article, don't hesitate to reach out to your implementation coach or account manager. They're here to help!

Importing Your Task Lists and Tasks into Sisu
Use one of the following templates:
Custom template: If you've already imported your users, ask your implementation coach for a custom template. This template will allow you to select users from a drop-down list.
Excel template: Click here to download this template.
Google Sheets template: Click here to download this template. Make a copy of it once it's downloaded.
Note: One way to make a copy of a Google Template is to open the template and go to File > Make a Copy. If the "Make a Copy" button is grayed out, check out this article in our Knowledge Base for some troubleshooting tips.
Open your copy of the template, and enter as much information as you can. If there's an asterisk in a column header, the column is required.
Note: If you want an in-depth overview of the template, see the section in this article called Quickly Understand the Task List Import Spreadsheet.
When you're finished, save your changes.
Reach out to your implementation coach, and they'll load everything into Sisu for you.
Customizing Trigger Dates for Tasks
Sisu offers a variety of dates that you can use to trigger tasks in a task list (e.g., MLS Live Date). However, you can add your own customized dates to the list of trigger dates by doing the following:
Add your customized date as a custom field in Sisu.
Add your custom field to a form.
Note: For help adding a custom field to a form, check out this article in our Knowledge Base.
Open the Task List Template.
Note: See the first section in this article called Importing Your Task Lists and Tasks in Sisu if you still need to download the spreadsheet.
In the template, go to the START HERE ==> Enter Info tab.
In the Custom Trigger Dates column, enter the name of the custom Date field (from step 1) in a blank cell. You must enter the name of the custom field EXACTLY as it appears in Sisu.
Once you've added all custom trigger dates, click on a Task List tab. Your new custom dates now appear in the Task Trigger date column's drop-down list.
Please let your Sisu support staff know that you customized some date fields so we don't miss the change.
