Similar to how this is done in ArcMap it would be very useful if the outputs of the Export to CAD geoprocessing tool in ArcGIS PRO were placed into a single group in the TOC. Ideally, this group name would be the same as the name of the CAD output file. Currently, Export to CAD tool adds the results to the TOC as individual layers with generic names (Annotiation, Point, Polyline, MultiPatch, Polygon) and exporting (and subsequently needing to verify) the outputs requires me to manually create and place them in a group. It would be great to reproduce ArcMap behaviour in this instance.

Adding a CAD file to Pro also exhibits this behavior.   I would very much like to see CAD files added to the TOC as a single group layer.   Currently over 20+ layers are added and are a challenge to manage.   There is precedence for this.   Feature services, for example, are added as a single group layer.
