ArcPro now has graphics layers for a map which you can capture ad hoc graphics into. I especially like the fact you can have many graphic layers. ArcPro also has Map notes which compliment the graphics layers.

In ArcMap you could convert graphics captured on a map into a featureclass. The current version of ArcPro (2.8) appears to not allow you to convert\export graphics out of graphics layer into a featureclass. You can share them into a layer file but not actually convert them into more concrete features in a featureclass.

My idea is to enable the graphics layer to export it's graphics to a featureclass or at least into a Map notes layer. I would envisage this functionality to be an option in the pop-up menu when you right click on a graphics layer in the contents panel

This would be the partner to  Converting features to graphics in ArcGIS Pro - Esri Community  

We expect this functionality to be available in ArcGIS Pro 2.9 which is planned to be released by the end of the year.

Thank you!
