    stopped with?

    If I missed out on some things at work and forgot what I last did in "the identification process" before going on vacation, could I ask

    "Could you tell me where we last stopped in the identification process?"

    "Could you tell me what I last stopped with in the identification process?"

    "Could you tell me what I last touched on in the identification process?"

    Re: stopped with?

    Could you tell me where we got to in/with the identification process?

    Could you tell me what stage we got to/reached in/with the identification process?

    Would "touch on" sound awkward?

    It has a different meaning.

    I'd now like to return to 'aspect', a topic I touched on in my last lecture.

    Here, I 'touched on' means that I referred to it briefly, but did not give any detailed information.

    Frequently heard in AmE would be "Could you tell me where we left off in the identification process?"
