Sometimes, features must be updated from another system or from offline work you've done. When there isn't a built-in integration to do this for you, we provide an easy way to update all features in Aha! with a simple universal import process.
In our support note, Export Features List and requirements views, we explain how to export data from Aha! to work offline and then update it later using Import from CSV. There are a few main scenarios where you may want to update features and requirements using the Import from CSV functionality:
- Working offline while traveling without wifi.
- Working in a dev system that is integrated with Aha! but doesn't have an API available to allow automatic updates. Aha! provides two-way integrations whenever possible, but some systems are limited because their APIs don't have webhook support.
- Working in a system that's not yet integrated with Aha!
Updating features and requirements
If you are first exporting from Aha!, ensure that the Feature and Requirements reference IDs are present. Then, include any data that is relevant for the work you are doing offline or for the system to which you are "sending" this data. Additional data can be added by clicking on the green drop-down menu on the right.
To update Features and Requirements status, all you need are the reference IDs and the status. If you want to update additional data, simply include it as part of your CSV file. When importing your CSV file, any data in Aha! will be overwritten. For this reason, we strongly recommend that if you are using this process to update from an engineering system, you only include status to avoid inadvertently overwriting data.
