Within Teamwork Projects, you can quickly import task lists/tasks via an excel sheet. You can import these to each project by adding details to an Excel spreadsheet to import.

To import tasks, click on the Tasks area of your project so you are viewing all task lists:

Then choose the option button (three dots) to the top right and select 'Import Tasks':


When you choose the 'Import Tasks' option you will be able to download a sample file to see how the Excel should be completed.
