If you currently use Jira to house some ideas or plan features, you can import data into Productmotion either as Feedback or Features.

Starting an Import Session

  1. Start an import session by navigating to the import screen

  2. Click on the Start Import button associated with Jira

  3. This will bring you to a Jira authorization screen for granting access. Once access is successfully granted, you will be brought back to the import screen and will be asked to choose a project you would like to import from.

  4. After choosing a project, you will see the import session interface. By default, the search box is an empty JQL query which will return all items associated with the Jira project that was selected. You can pick and choose specific cards to bring over, or click on the "Import all in search results" to import the entire query.

Once you have chosen specific items for import, or have checked the "Import all in search results" option, you can choose to import these items as Features or Feedback. Additionally, you can choose labels or objectives as relevant to add on to the items when they are imported.

When you are ready, click on the "Import Selected" button to begin the import. You will be brought to a loading screen while Productmotion is importing your data. Feel free to navigate away if you would like to do other things in the meantime.

When the import is complete, you can either choose to go back into your import session to import more items, or shut down the import session. Note that you can only have one import session active at a time. To start importing data with another data source, you should close off the existing one.
