CSV Import in xProcess

We're currently working on new import mechanism in xProcess that is both more powerful and more flexible. It builds on the recently released facility to define custom columns in tables for tasks and other elements in the "rich-client" implementation. This allows you to display information about elements, say a calculated value based on standard or customised fields of a task. You can export values displayed in a table into a CSV (comma-separated values) file. The new facility will allow CSV files to be imported and the values in columns to be imported as properties of the elements imported. If you'd like to know more about this facility or be involved in beta testing the feature do let us know. You can contact the development team via the forum in the SourceForge project: http://sourceforge.net/projects/xprocess/develop.
