Automatically import into a synchronized collection

I have used the checkbox to import into a collection but it doesn't remain checked as default next time. I want to automatically have all new imports go into my synchronized LR Mobile collection if you have any ideas thanks.

You could create an Import Preset at the bottom of the Import dialog. That will include the collection, but you'd still need to remember to select it for each import, so it's probably not a great advantage.
