Checking the Status of File Import

On the "Imported Files" screen, you can view the current status of the Import from File action that you performed.

If it takes a long time to import large amount of data, you can also check the latest status of your file import process. Additionally, if your file import action fails, you can check the error message on the "Imported Files" screen to identify which row the error occurred on.

Checking the Status on the "Imported Files" Screen

Imported Files screen

The "Imported Files" screen shows the current statuses or execution results of the file import actions you performed, and lists those data from the newest one to the oldest one based on the date and time in the Submitted column.

The screen refreshes automatically to update the display.
Imported files disappear from the screen after three days from the date and time specified in the "Submitted" column. Also, when an app is deleted, files imported into the deleted app disappear from the screen.

Item Description
Submitted Shows the data and time when the import file was registered.
Completed Shows the data and time when the file import process was completed.
When the current status is still "Waiting" or "In Progress", no data is displayed in this column.

When you click the link of the app name, the view of the app is displayed in list format.
However, if you do not have permissions to view/add records for the app, "(No permission)" is displayed instead.
File Shows the name of the file from which you import data to an app.
Status Shows one of the five file import statuses as below.
  • Waiting
  • In progress
  • Error
  • Cancel
  • Completed
Progress Shows a message based on the current status.
  • When the status is "Waiting":
    Shows a message indicating your file import action has been queued and is waiting to start.
    To cancel the file import process, click the "Cancel" displayed in the column on the right end of the screen.

  • When the status is "In progress":
    Shows the number of rows that have been imported. This number is incremented by 100 and displayed in the format of the number of imported rows/the total number of rows in the import file.
    To cancel the file import process, click the "Cancel" displayed in the column on the right end of the screen.

  • When the status is "Failed":
    Shows a corresponding error code and error message. For details on the solutions for the error, refer to the "What to Do If You Failed to Bulk Add/Update Records" page.
    To retry the data import using the file you corrected, click Retry Upload. When you upload the corrected file on the "Import from File" screen displayed, correspondences between app fields and file columns are automatically inherited from the previous import. (The correspondences are inherited only when both of the following two conditions are met: you selected the "First row is header" option in the previous import, and field names in the first row and their ordering are the same between the corrected file and the file uploaded in the previous import.)

  • When the status is "Cancel":
    Shows a message indicating that the file import process was canceled.

  • When the status is "Completed":
    Shows the number of rows that have been imported.

When the status is still "Waiting" or "Importing", you can cancel the file import process. However, there might be some cases where the cancel does not work depending on the timing when you perform the action, such as when the file import action has already been completed.
When you cancel the file import process, the app data is restored to the previous state before the import action was started.
