Unless I am completely over looking something, it would be nice to be able to select and import multiple views when importing from the BIMCloud. When working on a large project, like a hotel, it is very repetitive and cumbersome when having to import numerous views for enlarged floorplans, interior elevations, etc....

Well, I just noticed that if I import from the File>External Content it allows multiple selections, but just right clicking on the layout and place drawing is only at a time.

I am not sure about the exact wish.
In the title you talk about importing Layouts, in the post you talk about importing Views.

Are you trying to place Views from other Projects onto Layout in the current Project?
Or are you trying to import Layouts from another Project so they are placed among the Layouts within the Layout Book of the current Project?

This wish can be deleted. :D

When right clicking on a layout to place a view from the BIMcloud you can only place one view at a time (and with 20 views on a page that took awhile), and I thought that was the only option. However, I noticed after posting that you can go through File>External Content>Place External Content from BIMcloud and it allows you to select multiple view and import as many as you want. Not sure why it is different but now knowing the other method it allows me to attach views a lot faster now.

You could also use the Organizer Palette. Open the BIMcloud file in the left pane by clicking the button in the top left corner and using the " Browse Teamwork Project" command, display your Layout Book in the right pane, drag-and-drop multiple Views from the left pane onto Layouts in the right pane.
