I have been reading with excitement the new functionality in ArcGIS Pro 2.1. My version of Pro is not offering to update yet so I have yet to explore some of the new tools.  I noticed there are 2 new tools: Add Fields and Calculate Fields.

 

What is the advantage of using these over the existing Add Field and Calculate Field tools? Is there some sort of performance improvement?  Running the new Add Fields tool will have the same outcome as chaining many Add Field tools together, so why use it if the end result is the same?

 

Curious to understand why these tools have appeared when there are so many other ideas that people are asking for?
