Autoplayback symbols

Is there a way to make symbols automatically playback on the main timeline? In Flash this was simply selecting ‘play once’ or ‘loop’.
We don’t need to manually change every single frame of a symbol instance do we?

When I’m working, sometimes I just want to quickly slap a looping symbol on the main canvas and not worry about finessing it until later (ex wind/grass cycles, windmill turning etc). In Flash I would just draw the first frame of it, F8, go in and create the cycle, then leave it there to loop in relation to the main scene as I move on, knowing it’ll always be correct no matter what changes in the main timeline. No tangled mess of coordinating frames of the symbol to the main timeline.

This exists in Harmony, right?
