Album for Lightroom Mobile camera roll import

I wish there was a way to have photos from the iOS camera roll auto added from the camera roll into a specific album, so that they were easy to locate. If they import over time without me noticing, they could easily clog up my library. But I would love to be able to go through and automatically pick the ones I want to keep. I’m in particular thinking about screenshots or photos I take of documents.

Then again, those may still get lost between imports from SD card since Lightroom could probably not easily parse those out as different, so maybe there isn’t a good way to handle that other than sticking with manual import for now. Still I wanted to share it as a use case in the event that someone else out there might have some good ideas about how to solve it.

Tap the ... icon to the right of the album and toggle Auto Add from Camera Roll. I have one called Inbox that I use for this purpose.
