It would be awesome if under the add data arrow there was a "favorites" option that you could point to folder locations, services and geodatabases used frequently.  This function could be similar to bookmarks/favorties in web browsers.


This idea is still applicable to ArcGIS Pro.  Adding this comment on behalf of Nate Strout:

"I’d like to see favorited folder connections (and maybe db connections) added to the Open/Browse dialogs – specifically helpful for adding data and creating a new project.

Something like this:"

Bizarre that they added this to catalog view but not the Add Data dialogue. I don't use the catalog view all that often, so it'd be great if it were consistent.


Has anyone in here have a luck adding Favorites to the "Add Data" to get access to your hard drive aka C drive ?

Here is a example of what I am talking about :




But when you open Catalog Pane, it is there for you to access to OS(C:) hard drive ?

Is there a way around to add the Favorites like the one in Catalog Pan in the dialog box for the Add Data ??



Please add the Favorite to the Add Data to do list !!!!
