Imports currently show up in Current/Previous Import views. It would be great if the actual folder they are imported to would also be highlighted simultaneously (or marked somehow)? You have to right-click on the images and select "go to folder in library". How about a visual cue to skip that step? it's the little things....

It's possible to import multiple folders during a single import operation or just a handful of images across many folders, so a single folder per import is a specific variation that you're wanting handled in a special way because it is how you do things.

You'd still have to click on a highlighted folder to go to it, so it's only a right-click extra. You also may have to scroll down to a highlighted folder, which would take much more mouse movement than right-click/Go-To-Folder.

I do know you can import files from multiple folders into a single folder or maintain the file structure. All I'm asking for is dots or highlights to show the folders that received the imports so you don't have to search your tree looking for the grouping. Right-clicking on images in the "recent/current" import view requires you hunt and peck for the groups.

Maybe Adobe could add a feature that showed folders of photos in a particular collection, which would work for the imported collections as well as any others, but only as long as the collection was highlighted.

You wouldn't expect Imported photos, or those of any other collection, to have such a special status that the folders would remain highlighted until the next collection was designated, and if not, then maybe the momentary highlighting wouldn't be sufficient to be useful. I don't know.
