      Description

      In the "General backup defaults" admin screen, there's a section "General backup settings", which servers to set the default values for the various tickboxes in the backup settings ("Include blocks", "Include filters", etc.).

      Corresponding settings exist in the "Automated backup setup" admin screen but not in the "General import settings" screen.

      However, being able to specify the default tick box values for imports would be a very useful feature. In our setting, for example, course imports should normally not copy groups and groupings over, but users often miss this point since the default box value is "yes".
