    A stop or cancel button on imports could be a lifesaver for all Canvas users. I see it being helpful in scenarios such as:

     

    • You start to import the wrong content
    • You accidentally selected "All content" when you intended to choose "Select specific content," or vice versa
    • You forgot to adjust or remove the dates
    • An import is stuck in queue, and you want to cancel it before starting another import (This would prevent the queued import from running at a later time and overwriting course content.)

    Greetings!

    This is a great idea.  Our product team has evaluated the scope of this project and available resources.  It is something we will keep in mind in the future, but more than likely will not develop in the next 6-18 months.
