Export to CAD: Grouping Output Layers in ArcGIS Pro

    I used the function "Export to CAD" in ArcGIS Pro on a regular basis, to facilitate sharing data with heavy CAD users. 


    When I use this function with ArcGIS Pro, it puts all of the resulting CAD layers into my open ArcGIS Pro map, breaking out annotation, polyline, polygons, multi patches, etc.  However, I commonly do not need these files within my GIS document, and I have to individually find all of the added layers to remove them from my table of contents.   This sounds trivial, but can be time consuming if the CAD file is composed on several different GIS layers -- resulting in many new layers being added to my GIS file at one time.


    Can "Export to CAD" be revised to put all of the output CAD files into a group (similar to Desktop) to make it easier to find all of the output files?  Or provide a prompt asking me if I want the layers added to my file?
