Overview

Following these instructions, you can export project/scope data to a file that is compatible with Microsoft Project. This allows you to transfer data between applications.

Steps

  1. Select Admin > Projects, and then click on the + expand the Project Tree.

  2. Click on the arrow next to the Add Child Project button, and then select Export to MPX.

  3. Follow the prompts to save the file to you computer, and then import it into Microsoft Project.

The hierarchy you'll see is created by the following based on the project selection exported from Lifecycle: Project Tree, sprint/iterations, stories, backlog items, and tasks.
