Importing New Files Into a Bin that is Already Imported
I'd love it if there were a keyboard shortcut to update my imported folders to add media that is now in the folders that wasn't previously in there during the previous import.
I oftentimes add files into a project and have a file structure implemented physically on my computer. I start a project and do an initial import with the media that I currently have (which includes the all important file structure) As I continue the project, I need a pieces of media here and there, so I create it and save it on my computer in the folder that I want it to show up in. But then I have to drag and drop that specific file into premiere into the place that I want it to go. This makes me organize it twice and I would love a keyboard shortcut or simply a menu item that would automatically update the bins in Premiere to include the files that are in Finder.

Would be great!
This feature request is the same as some others that ask for a watch folder. It would be significantly beneficial to me since part of my job is organizing/structuring a messy backlog of archival files in a wide variety of formats. I'm working to organize these files into one place. PP is the best way to view all the formats in one place; as such, I have a PP project in that location. The down side is needing to manually import new files I've added to the folder.

This would be a great feature when using the Import Folder feature. I do always organize my media in folder on the HDD before i start the project. One folder for audio, one for video, etc, etc.
So let´s say that i use the Import folder feature in the Import dialog to import evey file in the Audio folder it imports as a bin and will take the name from the folder.
If i then add more audio files to that folder on the HDD it would be great to have the ability to select the bin in the Project panel and then right click on the selected bin and choose Update Bin and Premiere Pro detects the new files and import them into the selected bin. The command should be able to map to a keyboard shortcut.
