I'd like to see the ability to import into an existing collection, much like the application of a preset to an import. I teach my students to immediately make a collection upon import, and with this feature, they could specify all recursive imports to feed this collection.

Hi Martin,

If I'm understanding you correctly, it sounds like you could accomplish what you want already by creating a smart collection with appropriate criteria.

Sorry, I didn't reference your reply with my proper post. I think I understand your posit - I'll try it next import. Thank you for responding.
