Unfortunately we do not support importing a resource pool from an .MPP file at the moment.

There are 2 ways to import the resources from your .MPP file in our tool:

1. Import the resources in our Online Portal. To achieve this, please open the .MPP file with the resource pool and go to Team-Import Team. Check the resources you want to import, insert their email address and assign the role: Editor or Read-Only. We recommend this option with importing the resources into our Online Portal since you can later use these resources in all projects. For more info, please read the Manage Team Members article.
