Project 1 – List 1.1 – Task 1.1.2

Project 1 – List 1.2 – Task 1.2.1

  • Warning: importing an already existing project in Beesbusy generates the creation of a new project followed by a number.
  • It is not possible to create a project or an empty list.
  • In the same table, you can fill in as many projects, lists and tasks as you want. However, they must be grouped together (all the lines of the same project in succession, for example).
  • The number of imports is unlimited.
  • You can rename the file before import if you wish.


Once your Excel file has been saved to your computer, click on “Import file”. Select the file then validate. The project(s), list(s) and task(s) are then created in Beesbusy, new projects appear at the top of your list in the menu on the left of your screen.
