How do I view the status of current and prior course imports?

Current jobs in the Course Import Tool show the status of a course import. Status can help you view the progress of the import and if there is any action required on your part. An import can display up to five statuses.


The Astria LMS only processes one import at a time.

Astria LMS course imports count against course quotas. If your course import is larger than your course quota allotment, your course will not import. Contact your Astria LMS admin to request a larger course quota.

Copied Astria courses and course items do not count against course quotas. If your course import is larger than your course quota allotment, and if your course already exists in the Astria LMS, you can copy the course or course items from the original course into your new course without impacting your course quota.

Open Settings and Import Content into Course

View Current Jobs

The Current Jobs menu displays the status of your import. The Astria LMS can display several import statuses.

View Queued

When an import is first uploaded, the status displays as queued. The Astria LMS copies may also be displayed as pre-processing. These statuses both mean that Astria LMS is preparing the file for import.

View Running

When a report is uploading, the status displays as Running. Running reports display a progress bar indicating the time remaining to complete the import.

View Waiting for Select

If you chose to select specific content as part of the import process, the current job shows as Waiting for Select, which means you must select the content you want to import before it can be completed. You cannot cancel this action. Click the Select Content button.

Once you select content, the statuses will return to Queued and Running until Astria LMS imports the selected content.

Note: If you no longer want to select specific content and want to import all content instead, click the Select Content button and simply select all content and groups available for importing.

View Completed

When your import is complete, the status displays as Completed [1]. View imported content by accessing any link in Course Navigation.

A Completed status shown in orange [2] indicates the import contains errors. To view the specific error(s), click the issues link [3]. Examples of error issues include an external tool that needs to be reconfigured or content that includes a broken link.

View Failed

If an import is unsupported or otherwise cannot be imported, the status displays as Failed. To view the specific error(s), click the issues link.

View Previous Import

You can view previously imported content using the link next to the import type.

For imported files, click the content name [1]. The file will download to your computer. File imports cannot be downloaded for re-import after 500 days [2].

For course copies, clicking the link will take you back to the course that was copied [3].
