Expected Behavior

I recently tried to export the Establishment and Special table via the database (Data), but when I go to perform the following actions I get the error “Currently the database is being modified by operation: Export”

  1. When I go to delete a table, I expect it to delete the table.

  2. When I go to export, I expect it to export with my selections.

Actual Behavior

Hello @Restaurant_Specials

I believe you have to wait while the export operation is done (you will receive an email about the result) before doing any modification with Data Schema

How long are we talking? It’s been an hour since my last export which it has already been completed and is only 4.00 KB.

hm, it’s strange, it definitely should not take so long, I’m going to contact our backend engineers to check it.

Yes, I was able to delete the table that I required and the export button works as intended.

Thanks for the prompt support.
