    It is currently not possible to select multiple external files from any of the following 'Insert' script steps:

    • Insert Audio/Video
    • Insert File
    • Insert from Device [Photo Library, Music Library]
    • Insert PDF
    • Insert Picture

    However, bulk import from a folder (for pictures and videos only) has long been available under the script step:

    • Import Records[Pictures and Movie Files]


    Would like the following native functionality:

    1. Allow user to dynamically select multiple files using native file chooser dialogs (as shown below).
    2. Have the above script steps optionally return either:
      • an array of file paths (where feasible); or
      • automatically insert all user selected files,  either as new records or as field repetitions
