Quick Tasks and Action Items Import App


The Quick Tasks and Action Items Import app allows you to add action items from a customer meeting, a discussion or an email as a  structured, trackable and reportable work item in Clarizen.

In a few simple steps, you can add one or more tasks to Clarizen from a text file, excel table, HTML table or even bullet points, and assign them to a project, milestone, or task, or create a personal to-do task.

Adding items

You can add items in a bulk in one of the following ways:

  • From the Menu > Custom Actions > Quick Tasks Import

  • From a project Work Plan > the Custom Action button > Quick Task Import

  • From the Add Related link > Action Items

Adding as Tasks vs. Action Items

When adding items:

  • If you turn the Action Items toggle off the new tasks are added under the selected work item.

  • If you do not want to affect the project plan and just add the tasks to the Related Items panel for the work item, turn on the Action items toggle.

  • To import items as a to-do list, leave the project field empty and select the Action items toggle.
