    This will be key. Kind of a show stopper at the moment, all our project updates are entered into our ERP software, to have to enter it again makes this impossible. We do have the option to export data to excel, so if we can import from Excel, that would work.

    We are looking for a tool to complement our trello boards, so being able to import our existing backlog into dapulse is key for us to adopt this tool in our workflow.
