To reproduce this error: ========================
1)import csv file

Resulting error: ================
Warning (see attached file)

Expected result: ================
As discussed with Mike and Jesus - That warning's good to have for CLI users. If you explicitly set that option (--source-name) to the name of the temp file (which will be different each time) you'll get the desired behaviour without the warning.

But Jessica commented - the problem with the warning is that the user doesn't KNOW that the csv has successfully imported. it makes you think that the import has failed. The "Back" button is confusing. Perhaps there should be a "Go to import" button instead?

Jesus commented - that the dots should be removed.

  • Status changed from New to Verified

Tested - warning gone.
Now user is told that the import completed and they are given the option of clicking on the 'Back' button, which returns them to the import screen again.

I will mark as Verified, but I raise the question - is it useful to provide a button that would take the user directly to their newly imported information object/ authority record / accession record / event etc...?
