Let's Talk about Lists -- I would love a List Import Queue (wireframe included)

We ran into issues with list imports the other day that was due to a cluster issue in the sydney datacenter where our instance is hosted. We had 4 lists that were "being imported" and never finished even after 4 days. This got me thinking, we have a Campaign Queue, why not have a List Import Queue/History... This could get cumbersome with how some of us use lists (campaign Triggering) but if it is either tabbed or categorized, based on the following it should be easy to filter and troubleshoot:

Possible List Actions:

  • List Import
  • API List Import
  • Flow: Addition
  • Flow: Removal

Here is a quick and rough mockup -- forgive any inconsistencies, I'm writing in stream of consciousness.

Lastly, this type of view could be helpful for any asset, program, smartlist etc. Could be more widely applied.

If this is already on your docket as part of an upcoming release mentioned at summit -- my bad, but I hope it helps

Amazing idea. Would also love to be able to see just a column with the number of leads that were added without having to view the list (although the list is quite helpful as well).
