Import in the status of Waiting to be Processed

When viewing an Import in Blackbaud Sphere, the status is showing as "Waiting to be Processed.".What does this status mean and how long should the Import stay in this state?

Imports that are done in Blackbaud Sphere will initially sit in a status of "Waiting to be Processed" until the server picks it up to start bringing those entries into the database. The Import service works on a queue-based system where Imports are processed in the order they are created on the server. The amount of time it takes to complete an import or start processing an Import depends on how many other Imports are waiting in the server queue along with the size of the imports that are waiting. The suggested window of time  to allow for an import to complete is 24 hours, but in most cases it will not take this long.
