    Hey everyone. We have an open source NPM package for importing that could be adjusted by developers to provide the feature that you're looking for. Of course, this requires some development work from your side and isn't built-into the app, but it's a workaround. Would that work for you in the meantime?

    Hi Artur!

    Thanks for your Feature Request.
    It is not in our current roadmap, so I've set state "Gathering Feedback" for it and let's see if the community will like this feature (we are setting priorities based on votes and activity on feature requests)

    Regards,
    Maxim

    +1 ... I agree with Artur, this would be a very helpful addition.  We recently migrated from Jira/Tempo and the 7pace interface is much clunkier for adding our time than Tempo was in Jira and therefor takes longer.  The import is the only feature that allows me to come close to my previous amount of time it took me to add hours with Tempo (although it still takes longer with 7pace).  As I have to enter hours on multiple separate projects every day I need to import multiple times.  A simple match of the first line would save me from having to manually click and select each heading every single time I import.

    I too would love the ability to not have to select import headers every time.  I use the import on several organizations per day, and having to do 12 precision clicks every time is not only slow, but it can get physically painful.  I would love it if I could either include the headers in the copy/paste data, or just have 7pace remember the mapping after the first time.

    I had already been looking at that package, thanks.  I'll see if I can make mapping the organization name from a column in the import file an optional feature and submit a pull request when I get the time.  Ideally, it would be best to have the feature built-in to the existing import, though.

    I'm going to take a look at that API as well, but I would agree with Jason that it would fantastic if this could be something built in. Something as simple as having the ability to designate the first row of the data being imported as a header row would be a time saver.
