all done

And that’s it! Now you can import the CSV file into any task manager that supports it and use the data as you please. If you encounter any issues, please get in touch via email at support@sendtask.io or use the live chat box in the bottom right of the screen.

Please note: If you’re importing your tasks to a task manager where your collaborators are not yet invited, it’s best to leave the Task Assignee and Task Followers fields unmapped. This will ensure all tasks are imported successfully. Alternatively, you can invite your collaborators to a shared project in the new task manager before importing your tasks (using the same email address they had in Sendtask).
