Sometimes you need to change the datasource in a MXD file for a large number of files. When using this tool inside ArcCatalog, the program is completely unusable until the process finish.

One good improvement would be to convert this tool into a geoprocessing tool to be run in the background. This way you will be able to go on with your work

At this time there is no plan to offer this capability as a system geoprocessing tool. However, ArcGIS Pro has enhanced capabilities for updating your project data sources using the Catalog View.
