    We need a simple import export capability. E.g. allow users to quickly plan and setup their initial plan and boards in Excel, then allow it to be imported into Planner as a new board with buckets and tasks (and actions in tasks).

    Method could be as follows:
    In Planner add a button that "creates an Excel import template". - Selecting this will auto generate a pre-formatted Excel import template - with standard labels / fields created (MVP1 could be mandatory Board name, Bucket names, and Card names with a means to sequence these in order - (the rest is gravy but should never be mandatory fields in future)).

    End user can thus edit this template then upload it to a Team channel as a Planner import object - creating a new named board in the process.

    The same should be possible in reverse. An existing board should be able to be exported to Excel (and MS Project )

    MS Project should be able to create Planner Boards and Cards as well (it has common fields) - as a matter ofr facty MS Project GANT view should exist in PLANNER and Planner Boards should create MS Project plans...
