How to fill in the template

To complete the Excel template, fill in the fields indicated below (those marked with an asterisk are mandatory(*):

  • Name*: name by which you will identify the project within Holded.

  • Due date dd/mm/yy: indicates the day on which you finish the project, following the format dd/mm/yy.

  • Tags (comma separated): separated by commas, they function as labels to help you identify your projects.

  • Allow notifications (1 : yes, 0 : no): if marked as active (1), alerts will be sent to the emails of each employee involved in creating the tasks.

  • Invoicing (1: yes, 0: no): enter a 0 (invoicing disabled) or 1 (invoicing enabled) depending on whether you want to enable invoicing for the project.
