Open maven project vs. import

Can someone clarify for me when you would import an existing maven project versus just opening it by clicking on the POM?
Thanks.

When you use "import", you are presented with a series of dialogs to set various options (for both maven and the project). When you just open the pom file, you do not get those dialogs. IDEA just uses the defaults. (You can always go into the settings later and change them.)
