Import Microsoft Projects (MPP / MPX files)

Learn how to import Microsoft Projects files (MPP / MPX) into your Zoho Projects portal. You can plan your project in Microsoft, import them and start collaborating in Zoho Projects.

  1. Click in the top navigation bar.
  2. Navigate to DATA ADMINISTRATION > Imports.
  3. Click Start Import on the MPP AND OTHER FILE IMPORT section.

  4. Drop or attach an .MPP file from your local computer and choose a Project Name to import. By default, the MPP/MPX option will be selected. If you wish to import other files, you can select the File Type accordingly. Click Import.

  5. If the imported file contains custom fields then map them with the layout task custom fields (if any) and click Continue.

  6. When you import a Microsoft Project Plan, you can choose to leave the imported tasks unassigned or associate the MPP users to Projects users.
  7. Once the users are associated, click Associate users.
  8. Click Continue to import the tasks into Zoho Projects.

We support the MS Project versions: 2003 - 2016 (up to date).

Zoho CRM Plus and Zoho One users can import only tasks via Microsoft Projects files (MPP / MPX) into the portal. To do this, navigate to Task module of your project, select at the top right corner and click Import Tasks.
