Multiple Part Orientation When Inserting Into An Assembly

When using INVENTOR, I can choose to have multiple instances of the same component inserted into the assembly, oriented the same way. From there, I use constraints to align the components to their proper locations.

 

Can the same be done with SOLIDWORKS?

Once the components are brought into the assembly, I'd still use constraints to properly place them, but when inserting multiple components, it would be nice to have them already turned around, facing the proper direction, leaving me with just having to use 1 or 2 constraints.
