Importing projects

You can import projects to Across which are previously exported from Across in form of project files (ARA files). The Project Import Wizard will help you.

  1. Proceed as follows:
  2. Start the Project Import Wizard via the menu item File > Import Project.
  3. Once the wizard has started, click Next.
  4. Click Browse in order to select the project file to be imported.
  5. Select the project file and click Open.
  6. Select one or several projects that you want to import.
  7. You can also activate or deactivate individual checkboxes to select documents and target languages if you merely want to import parts of projects.
  8. Click Next.
  9. If you wish, you can now adjust the project name and assign a project manager.
  10. You can also activate the option for keeping the task assignments that existed in the exported projects at the time of the export.
  11. Click Next.
  12. Now you can determine the subjects and relations to be assigned to the projects to be imported. The values that existed at the time of the export will be proposed.
  13. If the exported projects contained subjects or relations that no longer exist in Across, you can have them created automatically by activating the corresponding option.
  14. Click Import to start the import.
  15. The selected project(s) will be imported. To track this process, click Background tasks at the bottom right in the client in order to open the Background Tasks Progress dialog.
  16. Once the Background tasks button is no longer displayed, the process is finished.
