Placing a multi-page PDF
It would be great if we were able to place a multipage PDF instead of each link clicking through the finder window to the same file and going through the PDF pages one at a time again and again to place them in a document.
Well, so far we can import the range of PDF’s pages into a new document, as linked or embedded objects, and then drag-n-drop them into the document we want them to be placed in.
Two steps instead of one, but it works. Does it for you?

Jason, yes you can open a Multi-page PDF as separate artboards that's fine I understand that, but that's not what I was trying to say. You cannot place a multi-page PDF in one go, you have to keep going back through the finder to the same file and relink the second page and then the third and so on. You should be able to choose a file and choose a selection of 1-5 pages and place them with each click.

This exists on Mac, drag a multi-page PDF to the Illustrator dock icon. Not sure about Windows.
