Last year I exported / downloaded my project to XLSX to enable me to run spell checker and then uploaded the now correct file - I now cannot see an upload from XLSX option - has this changed - I use this for annual goals and so have not been on the software much in the past 12 months.

Any help gratefully received.

    Hello Colin

    Thanks for your inquiry.

    1. The Report (File > Export in Goalscape Desktop, Download As in Goalscape Connect) has always been one-way only: it generates a report on your project in various formats (PDF, DOCX, XLSX, CSV, MS Project XML and MindManager MMAP). There is not (and never has been) any facility to import from XLSX; you can however import/upload MS Project XML and MindManager MMAP files as Goalscape projects.

      You should be able to find the Goalscape projects themselves easily. In Goalscape Desktop you can search your hard drive for the .gsp files. In Goalscape Connect, if a project does not appear in your workspace when you sign in, you can re-open it from the User Projects List under the Home tab (the furthest-left tab).

    2. If you were only exporting your projects to use the spellcheck feature in a spreadsheet application, please note that there is a spellcheck in Goalscape itself. Errors in goal names and Notes text are identified by red 'squigglies' (as in many other applications): you can right-click the word to select the 'correct' spelling, or add your version to the dictionary. The spellcheck reflects the language selected in the Customise screen.

      If you do not see squigglies under misspelled words, you have probably turned off the spellchecker. To turn it on again, click anywhere in any Notes field, then right-click and select the 'Enable Spelling' option.

    Keep achieving great goals!

    Hello Colin

    As you may have noticed, we have now delivered the 'Import CSV' feature you requested!

    For more information (and a How-To video) see our blog article. The full requirements for the CSV source file are in our Knowledge Base.
