Improve Import Scenario to allow ability to execute scenario row by row and see results in View Screen

You likely handle a fair number of support issues related to Import Scenarios and I know that I've struggled with a few.

It could likely save Acumatica money and improve consulting efficiency and usability of the product if the view screen functionality in the Import Scenario could be expanded to show the import scenario steps being taken one by one. It is extremely time consuming and frustrating trying to determine if what you have planned to work is going the way expected or not until you have the whole thing put together only to spend ages trying to debug it.

    In other systems I have seen the ability in debug mode to view the screen into which the data is being imported as the data is being imported so that you could more easily identify issues with mapping.  Determining which object to map to in Acumatica can be tricky and when passing values for lookup fields it is often unclear if it should be the database table value or the name/value displayed in Acumatica. Anything to make imports easier is a good thing. You get my vote.
