Drag and drop folder from Windows Explorer to create Directory Input

I really love how I can drag and drop a file directly onto the canvas from Windows Explorer and Alteryx knows to create an Input Data tool. But when I tried it with a folder today, hoping to see a Directory Input tool appear, it wouldn't do it. Could we have a similar functionality for automatically creating a Directory Input tool?

I was just about to create a few directory input and was thinking the same thing.  This is a good idea and makes Alteryx just that much easier to use.  Wonderful idea!

Great idea!
