The process of making icons design is made easier in Adobe Illustrator CC.
When an illustrator or designer designs a collection of pictograms or icons designs they must arrange artboards in large quantities for different icons design according to the needs of the web, apps, and other products. Adobe Illustrator CC must provide special needs for artboard settings to facilitate the process of designing a collection of pictograms or icons design with large numbers to suit many needs such as for web, apps, games, favicons, etc. Facilitate the work process becomes lighter and faster.
This is a pretty vague request...
It’d need more details on the layouts one wants to get, with examples.
Meanwhile, a lot of scripts and plugins exist out there, free and paid, to solve the problem with creating and managing artboards in large quantities. I’d advise to search for solution that fit your need. Start here, for example: https://github.com/creold/illustrator-scripts/blob/master/md/Artboard.md
