Thank you for your post!
You might be able to input the File Names (to import) into fields and use SetVariable to make the paths to the files. This may or may not be a little faster than manually running through the import.
As beverly suggested, I'm also going to move this thread from the FileMaker Community Feedback Space (which is specifically for input on the Community itself) to the Discussions Space where you should receive more views and potentially more feedback on this topic!
