Auto-Import Watch Folder
I would love to see an optional function that would act like a watch folder for importing assets and folders (as bins). The way I see it working would be: a user designates a folder in drive storage, and as folders and assets are added to that folder, they are automatically added to the project, with the same folder/bin structure. This would save a ton of organizational time.

The development team decided against this feature because a third party plugin already exists. You can see the official response in this request thread - https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/33846751-watch-folders

I have been wanting this for a while. The plugin sounds good, but this should be built in to PP. It will save HUGE amounts of time and cut redundant work for many projects.

I agree! Thankfully we don't need to wait for Adobe on this one, since as John mentioned, there's a great plugin available that already does this: WatchTower (https://knightsoftheeditingtable.com/)
I tested it today and it works great!
It would be nice to see Adobe add this functionality in Pr however... but only after they fix other problems that don't have a plugin workaround ;)

Hey guys, just the feature I've been looking for several times in the menus. Really necessary when building a project from many sources over time. Putting in more assets from stock librarys etc

There is a plugin available to do this, but I agree the feature is necessary: https://knightsoftheeditingtable.com/

Agreed. Has this been addressed?
