adding multiple files into sense using data manager


I'm adding files into a new app via the data manager.

the thing is i can only import one! file each time.

i have a folder with 10 files

when i click the + sign in the data manager it opens the data selection area with all the available connection and on the left a place to

look for local files on my computer.

for each file i need to select it, then qlik opens it and shows me the data, and then when i click add data it closes the file and suggest i open a new sheet, then i have to cancel the suggestion, which get me back into the data manager, then i have to click the + sign again, and of course, the path i typed there earlier is erased so i have to type it again, then look for my next file, and so on so on for each file i want to import

isn't there a way to select multiple files and add them all at once? similar to the way its done when i select an excel file that has multiple sheets?

this is TBH totally ridiculous

any one have an idea how to do it? or workaround it?

i tried dragin the files into the data manager but it didn't work

am i missing something?

please help
