  1. The importing Roadmap Items from a CSV file feature can accept the date format "yyyy-mm-dd" only. However, the date format in the CSV file after saving from Microsoft Excel becomes "dd/mm/yyyy" or "yyyy/mm/dd". Then the date format should be changed after saving from Microsoft Excel.
  2. If using lookup value to import the custom attribute which uses lookup also cause this problem, this should be used lookup ID when importing.
