Hi Alicia,

Sorry, currently WGC plugin doesn't have an import back function for that. Excel file exported from Gantt screen cannot be imported back to Gantt.
You might consider using the Jira original function of Export/Import CSV If you would like to export tasks and import back from Excel. 
And the import error you got was probably caused by selecting the wrong file. MS Import is a function to import tasks from Microsoft Project. Please try importing an MPP file and if you this still issues please raise a support ticket



The answer seems to be valid still 04/2022 .. at least didn't find yet any excel import action.

Hello @Jouni Riimala 

Thanks for your comment.

Precisely. You can still import CSV files from Excel using Jira's original function.

You can use WBS Gantt-Chart, however, to import/export MS Projects files, which are not natively supported by Jira.

If you still need any further detailed assistance with Import/Export, please feel welcome to contact our support team, we will be glad to be of help!

Kind Regards,
