There are many different ways we can manage our projects. Some people may choose to use a traditional spreadsheet option such as Excel, while others may go for a more full-fledged project management tool. For those who choose to start with Excel, the option is always available to move the data into an application such as FastTrack Schedule 10.
In FastTrack Schedule 10 users can easily migrate existing projects from spreadsheets into new or existing files. To transfer data from Excel to FastTrack, we will save our file as Tab-Delimited or Comma-Separated Text files. When we transfer this data we can choose to transfer everything or only select columns based on our specific needs.
We start out with a simple spreadsheet, which in this case has been set up with specific columns for Activity Name, Duration, Start Date, and Resource.
