Import MS Projects

    Import Projects allow you to import projects created using Microsoft into SDP MSP with ease. Each MS Project can be imported as a single project. It is necessary that the attributes of MS Projects have to be equivalent to those in Service Desk Plus  MSP Projects. Hence the attributes in Microsoft have to match with the attributes in SDP MSP. 

    'Import MS Project' option is available under Projects>>Import MS Project.
