I use the alternate layout tool a lot to group different sized content in the same InDesign file.
While I know I can select the layout as a range during export, it would be a huge timesaver to be able to export all of my layouts as separate PDFs and then just add the alternate layout name to the end of the PDF file.
Ideally this could be a check box in the export settings "export each alternate layout as a separate file"6 votes
InDesign versions CC2018 and above have an option called ‘Create Separate PDF Files’ in the Export PDF dialog. Using this option, you should be able to export all your layouts as separate PDFs.
Which version of InDesign are you using?

Allow setting of the PDF "opening view" properties on creation instead of after creation.
When I send a proof, I want my customers to see the pages panel, and view the files at a specific size and layout - Doing this has saved thousands of cock-ups - unfortunately it has cost me hundreds of hours doing the same thing over and over.5 votes
This feature already exists in InDesign, or are there some enhancements over and above what already exists that you are requesting here.
