I created over 100 tags in Pi Data, but would LOVE to make their addition into PI AF a lot faster.
Any one know of a drag and drop or import function that would be faster than one at a time?
I would suggest you to use PI Builder (Excel Add-in) to manage tag creation and AF mapping i.e. attribute configuration mapping.

Like Lal Babu Shaik mentioned, PI Builder is a great way. Another way is to use templates use attribute naming patterns. You also can use the tag search in PI System Explorer (PSE) and tag the tags onto the elements. In PSE Tools > Pallet> Tag Search and from here you can drag multiple tags onto an element. You likely will have to rename the attributes to something more meaningful.
We normally suggest you do it in the opposite direction. Create your elements/assets then create your PI Tags. The functionality of creating pi tags in bulk from Element template is natively supported via PSE.
Please do check out this part of manual:
Configure automatic creation of PI points
Thanks, the Pi Builder was the way to get 245 tags built.
