I am using Lightroom CC 2015.8 on a Mac and Lightroom Mobile and would like to have all photos I import from my camera's memory card into my LR desktop catalog be automatically available on my iPad. It already works well when I add the imported photos to a Synchronized Collection, but I cannot find anywhere to set a default Collection for imports. I see the checkbox for "Add to Collection" in the import dialog, but it must be checked every time I import files. Is there a way to permanently set this? I am not talking about Develop Presets. I can setup an Input Preset to do this, but cannot set a default Input Preset either. Any suggestions for my workflow? Thanks in advance!

Yes, on the bottom of the import dialog is an option to save the settings.
This will include the collection, application of presets...

Some of the other options available, during import, are sticky. I have "build smart previews" selected and every time I re-import, it's still checked. Not sure why this isn't an option for "add to collection". As "tspear" mentioned, create a preset of all your settings.
